The French music scene, a scene that we keep a very close eye on. Today’s curated music selection will certainly put a smile on your face as you listen to these hidden gems from emerging groups ; some of these tracks are the bands’ first ever release ! Our playlist is very progressive. It begins with the sweetness of Nicolaaas, Itonas and Komorebi’s ballads ; it then gets a bit more joyful and upbeat with “Fleurs”, a track taken from the first EP of the duo Ani who just made its debut on the French pop scene. Then it is “Transforme” which moves us, a sensitive yet strong song with a message, telling with subtlety the transition of the singer’s sister. Little by little, the track get more and more uplifting and rhythmic as we end up on “Noir” from Yelle, a haute couture song that first her perfectly !
