Two tracks, two well chosen tacks and already Karaocake, side project become a three-piece, stands out as a promising and exciting talent of the French electro pop scene, delivering strength and charisma with rage and freshness.
At the cross-roads of Polux From Rio, Micachu & the Shapes and Wildbirds & the Peace Drums, Karaocake deliver a dense and kaleidoscopic sound, combining synthetic and organic sonorities, with passion, grace and strong temper.
This single is stylishly entrancing and utterly addictive.
« It doesn’t take a week 7′ mix » Between rage and melancholy, with its powerful melodies, this track will echo in every one of us. Both finely crafted and spontaneous, it is a genuine piece of modern pop jewellery you could easily see featured in a movie by Sofia Coppola or Michel Gondry.
« High&High », the B side, is more evanescent and less incisive. The result is simply sumptuous despite the trio's claimed DIY production.
Original, moving- and very inspired-, this single only leads us to one thing besides listening to it again and again and again : impatiently wait for the album release (« Rows & Stitches » 2nd June 2010 by clapping music)
