Bands Worth Watching

 

Cocoon

Although they are pretty well recognized in France, not enough people know about them here in New York and well…you should! Once you hear “Chupee,” you won’t be able to stop singing it. The song will even slip into your dreams, so be prepared!
 


Emily Loizeau

This lady channels a bit of Nina Simone and Tom Waits in her own French cabaret way. I can picture her setting up a toy piano and serenading those passing by.
 


Brigitte

This female duo formed in a coffee shop in 2008 wanting to make a sound that was quintessentially French and female. What better inspiration than the stunning Brigitte Bardot?
