There's something magical about merging the naive with the lo-fi: both feature in everything we love about pop music. Simple structures, clear hooks, and danceable beats, can undercut the gloss and the pomp that are often mistaken for high production values. Lyon-based Camille Bouvot-Duval, the one-woman show behind De La Montagne, cites Tracy + The Plastics, The Knife and Cansei de Ser Sexy as influences, and it shows. This is brash, coy electro that plays to the sexual politics of the dance floor while subverting them.
Catch De La Montagne on Midnight Love Affair this Sunday August 5th at 10pm EDT.
