Francois & The Atlas Mountains
Francois & The Atlas Mountains will be playing End Of The Road Festival 2012.
The delightful French singer-songwriter, musician and animator brings his collection of Gallic chamber-pop and chanson to the UK, performing songs from his latest album ‘E Volo Love’.
Recently signed to Domino Records, Françoisʼ playful vocals croon above electronic beats, African rhythms, rich piano chords, shimmering electric guitars and an all-female polyphonic vocal group to create a colourful sound-world.
‘A tour de force of French pop eccentricity.’ The Word
Quote from the Stool Pigeon:
“There’s a childish pleasure in making music, playing and creating for the joy of the act itself, rather than for any conscious end goal. Frànçois’ music is full of this sense of simple wonder and yet too contemplative to ever become cloying. It’s a dreamlike amalgamation of French and English lyrics over lifting acoustic guitars and impressionistic pianos – part Adrian Orange joyous freedom, part Erik Satie sad melancholia.” – Stool Pigeon
