Folk rock band The Missing Season was discovered a few years ago with their debut album The Secret Map. Their new LP, To the Fire, has just been released.
Even if the Breton quartet share the same territory as the big indie folk names, they also demonstrate a special pop sensibility and a melancholy which is reminiscent of older groups such as Tram and Willard Grant Conspiracy.
Adapting to the acoustic setting, Nicolas Gautier and Marin Perot played ten songs, including a wonderful cover of The Smiths' "There's a Light That Never Goes Out".
A new Parisian duo whose first rehearsal had taken place only a month before, Perce-Neige opened the evening. Olivier Briand, from the band 1=0, and Marine Riou unveiled a fragile and often sharp humanity.
