Members of Aquaserge are including Tame Impala drummer Julien Barbagallo, Melody’s Echo Chamber collaborator Benjamin Glibert and Julien Gasc, formerly of fellow Francophiles, Stereolab. They have played as backing band for Bertrand Burgalat and recorded a recent album with April March. But under the name Aquaserge, the five members want to explore certain unknown, or little known pockets of rock. A mixture of deep influences was thus established ; navigating knowingly between kraut giants such as Neu ! and Faust, anglo-saxon pop, Soft Machine, Zappa… Over jaunty acoustic guitar, a loose-limbed bassline and strangely tweaked backing vocals that rise and fall throughout, it couldn’t be more French sounding if it was walking around the set of a Jean-Luc Goddard film and whistling a Serge Gainsbourg song. This is a good thing, as said by the English media ;)
