Odezenne hails from Bordeaux, France, leaving their unmistakable mark on the musical landscape of the country song after song. With their latest album "Au Baccara", they unveiled a new piece of the puzzle they have been carefully crafting for 10 years now. With Edouard Nardon for artistic direction and Bertrand Fresel for the mix, Odezenne has put their spontaneity to the test of a long-winded studio work, going to the mythical Konk studio in London, where they recorded the album on tape, a mash-up of eras defining how that album came to be. In "Au Baccara", impressionist formulas sit side by side with bittersweet aphorisms, melancholic pads mingle with powerful beats - and everything combines elegantly to create a long-form where it feels good to get lost. The message hidden behind these tracks, is that losing is only a view of the mind, the only thing that matters it is to keep going and enjoy the ride. More recently, Odezenne released "Bleu Fuchsia", a song celebrating the early life of Jacques, one of the MC, a time when he was working at the gigantic Rungis marketplace.
