French Music

Lots of thanks to Steph for recommending French band Celluloide to me. The music is cool, catchy, danceable and very 80's inspired electro pop. 3 of the songs available as free download are from the 2004 album Words Once Said, while the final track Wounds Of Love is from the 2002 album Naive Heart. All of the songs are really great and highly recommendable!
A 6 track EP called Bodypop was released earlier this month, which probably is something to check out! A couple of the new tracks can be streamed at
Myspace.
Show Me The Way [mp3]
Wounds Of Love [mp3]
Synchronise [mp3]
This Aching Kiss [mp3]

Dekad is another French electronic pop band, and once again this is a band I've found at Myspace. Influenced by other bands like De/Vision, Joy Division and Nine Inch Nails, Dekad are A little darker/tougher than Celluloide, but equally good.
