Minitel Rose are a brilliant band from where else other than those Gallic shores, and of course, from our favourite stable (maybe equal with Italians Do It Better), majestic Valerie.
Their first release, entitled 'The French Machine', has dropped and has some great follow ups to 'Continue' and their Valerie Theme.
Almost like a French Klaxons, they have that same mystic edged rock from somewhere in the future that is mysteriously able to be traced back to historic influences (such as the rather Middle Eastern tinged Magic Powder).
Check out my faves below and make sure you buy buy BUY The French Machine! I'm not actually the biggest fan of what seems to be the upcoming single - Magic Powder, but there is much much more! You can also hear further tracks from Minitel Rose here at the Valerie blog, an original named Business Woman – an homage to the rise of the powerful and independent woman in the 80s (aka SHOULDER PADS), and a remix they have done for French indie rock band Papier Tigre.
