NEW ALBUM: Syd Matters - Brotherocean

You don't often hear these sounds coming over the boarder from France, especially since they aren't anything like the French sounds that you'd expect. In fact, they sound very much American and you instantly come to think of acts such as The Dodos & Musée Mécanique.

Syd Matters hails from Paris and is fronted by Jonathan Morali (guitar, piano), next to Rémi Alexandre (guitar, piano), Olivier Marguerit (guitar, piano, flute), Jean-Yves Lozac'h (bass, piano) and Clément Carle (drums). Let me leave it at that though, in terms of band info, and have the music speak for itself. Bye the album and have a listen to it in one go and you'll see it's addictive. But since I couldn't find the album as stream anywhere, these few videos will do to get a first impression on the band and their amazing new album Brotherocean. Hope it'll get you hoocked!
