AaRON (CINQ7 / WAGRAM)
AaRON is Simon Buret and Olivier Coursier. The electronic pop duet was brought to fame with the hit single “U-turn (Lili)” from the movie Je vais bien, ne t’en fais pas. Their 1st album, Artificial Animals Riding on Neverland sold 400,000 copies. The new album Birds in the storm, is already on top of the sales charts in France. AaRON’s songs map out a very private picture of the band’s life. Like a fixed impression of precise moments. Their music oscillates between bliss and petites morts.
THE TWO (WAGRAM)
The Two’s music feels like an invitation to dream in their own secret garden. Ara and David are seemingly rediscovering the magic of uncluttered melody, primary sound colors and simple words, all underlined with strength and elegance by their vocal harmony. As though improvised, The Two’s music speaks with a rare natural voice.
BALBINO MEDELLIN (NAÏVE)
Balbino Medellín is a French singer, songwriter, and guitarist with a Spanish-influenced style who released his debut album in 2006. Born of Spanish heritage his music is minimalist, straightforward, unadorned, and sailing between traditional French songs and punk attitude. He collaborated with Sergent Garcia, Mano Solo, and toured as the opening act for Bernard Lavilliers. His new album was produced by Bernard Lavilliers himself!
