Check out exciting Norwegian band Musique Le Pop’s new tracks: ‘Turn To Sand’ (including the B-side ‘We Can Be Good’) and ‘Time changes’ (on Café Superstar Recordings).
Musique Le Pop is: Betty, Chris and Jon, with backgrounds from bands such as Remington Super 60 and Safariari.
Christoffer explains: “The three of us have wanted to do something together for a long time. We have known one another for years, and have always contributed on each other’s projects, but we’ve never worked as close as we do now – moreover, in what has come to be our main project. Betty and myself hail from the twee scene with our feet planted solidly in 60s pop and easy listening, while Jon has a background in dance music and indie.
It has not been a conscious choice, but that is more or less where we have ended up wound-wise as well: as if Brian Wilson or Burt Bacharach were to write songs for Stereolab or John Talabot.”
Musique Le Pop is working on an EP planned for release this summer.
