Finally, after a long time I found another good ethereal group, and one with a male singer, which is rare enough. The drifting music is akin to a band like And Also the Trees
in these 19th-century countryside sort of scenes it evokes. This mood's tranquility is sometimes ruptured by a more forceful drive which keeps the music from becoming too lethargic or single-issued. Listening to You or Sidney, I sometimes can't help but think this trio must be British by their sound, but they're French. What makes this band most interesting though, are the dual vocals of which I especially like the male singer, and their largely acoustic approach that is a little medievalish, but not to excess. There are a lot of subtly beautiful, waltzy melody lines hidden among the music's many layers. For hopeless romantics and children of another era.
