"Jerry Bouthier’s Continental records kicks off 2015 with the tentalizing double-A side single ‘Imagine/Easy To Find’ from duo Bleu Toucan, the latest gem to break out of the French electronic scene. Leo and Manu are Bleu Toucan. Leo lives in Pau in the south of France, Manu’s based in Paris, they are both in their mid twenties. It’s not even a year they’ve started to work together, yet the songs keep coming: breezy post-cards blessed by delicious melodies gathered from teenage diaries and worn out vinyls, Bleu Toucan’s songs are as personal as they are ambitious, light but never shallow, different yet familiar, and so addictive. This is how pop music should sound in 2015: sexy and daring but never over-confident, sensitive and still funky, melodic without sounding fake. Feels like a big, genuine breath of fresh romantic air… then again what else to expect from talented French boys?" + via the official page here.
