Classically trained musicians Christophe Musset, Ambroise Willaume, and Jérémie Arcache's quiet vibe was actually born out of circumstance: Rehearsing in Paris's notoriously stacked-on-top-of-each-other, tissue-paper-walled apartments, the boys didn't exactly have the ability to crank their amps to 11, lest they disturb their cranky neighbors. Their first gigs were also in tiny, informal spaces, like watering holes and friends' living rooms, and so their quite literally christened "pop de chambre," or chamber-pop, style of music was created for practical reasons.
Using the rich musicality they culled from their classical studies but inspired mainly by great English-language pop melodicists (Crosby, Stills & Nash, Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel, Elliott Smith, and of course the Fab Four), Revolver issued the EP Pop de Chambre in 2008, followed by their whimsical full-length debut, which has finally been released in the States to critical acclaim by Francophiles and audiophiles alike.
