Here’s a bit more info on the bands who are playing:
Team Ghost is the new project from Nicolas Fromageau: founding member of M83, the groundbreaking French outfit often credited with inventing chillwave. Bowing out of M83 in 2003, Fromageau left his native Antibes and headed for Paris to form Team Ghost with multi-instrumentalist Christophe Guérin and producer Jean-Philippe Talaga. Team Ghost take the M83 blueprint of electronica and shoegaze, add krautrock rhythms, post-punk and stark synth-pop, the result is atmospheric, angular and oftentimes dark electronica.
Anoraak is the current guise of Frederic Riviere: producer, singer, multi-instrumentalist and another major player in the French electro pop scene. Having started his musical career in a series of indie-rock bands that never felt quite right, Frederic relocated to Nantes in Western France where his present day sound began to take shape. The first Anoraak EP Nightdrive With You (2008) was inspired by a mixture of influences ranging from twisted disco to 80s synth. Debut album Wherever the Sun Sets (2010) saw Anoraak continue to develop his distinctive sound, with nods to Italo-disco, Motown and funk, plus richly-layered instrumental loops and the odd touch of nostalgic pop.
