je pense souvent à eux.
There is a hidden twisted language game going on in the indie pop world. Strangely enough, french is where most bands wind up. Portland-based brother/sister duo, Eux Autres, honour the land of croissant in the best possible way. They write songs about soccer, military history and pop culture whilst devouring records of Francoise Hardy and Jacques Dutronc. After two albums, they have two singles out [“You’re Alight” and “Strangled Days”] as well as an appearance on a hm,well... Bruce Springsteen compilation titled “Play Some Pool, Skip Some School, Act Real Cool”. Leaving Bruce aside, Heather and Nicholas are lovely. ils sont vraiment magnifique.
