Caravan Palace's third studio album, <I°_°I>, was released in October 2015. Created in their Parisian studios, where the electro-pioneers fuse hedonistic house and old school jazz to glorious effect, <I°_°I> evokes the spirit of a modernistic Quintette du Hot Club de France.
Instrumentalists and studio wizards Charles Delaport, Hughes Payen, Antoine Toustou and Arnaud Vial together with Zoe Colotis, Camille & P-M have created a retro-futuristic sound-bed. Comics, an irresistible masterpiece of hip-hop synth-jazz and the first taster from the new album, will be revealed on 22 June.
Having originally formed in 2005 the band’s eponymous debut album in 2008 set the tone - a rip-roaring party, bursting with fun and good humour. From it, the single Jolie Coquine went on to define a new sound, while the parent album launched the band globally, charting in their native France where it quickly attained a platinum sales award.
The second album, 2012’s Panic, was a little more experimental. Featuring the massive tunes Clash and Rock It For Me it remains a treat to listen to, whether in a burlesque bar or at home. Since its release the band’s live profile has risen unrelentingly, their concert tickets flying out with minimum promotion and zero-hype. A true word-of-mouth sensation, they’re capable of tearing the roof off any venue or festival tent.
