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. The track is the
forerunner for their next EP, “Pouchkine”, coming out early September 2019.
Wikipedia labels the band " alternative music ", for Odezenne exploits with an unfettered joy the
Bermuda triangle of contemporaneous music, between the verve of everyday life, the chiseled
emotion of the songwriters, and the dancing rhythms of our electronic era. Serene craftsmen of
this eclecticism, Odezenne continues their creative adventure without any complex.
