An excuse for another mention of the wonderful Aline as they're playing in Paris tonight at the L’Alhambra.
I featured the video for their song Je bois et puis je danse earlier this month, which featured on their album Regarde le ciel, which was released in January.
The band went under the name Young Michelin for a while, changing their name under pressure from a certain tyre manufacturer.
A name change at the time a band are just beginning to forge a reputation can be a disaster, having released a couple of EPs and a victory in the Les Inrocks CQFD awards in 2010, but Aline bounced back with a series of releases that showed that however illustrious their past had been, their present and future were even brighter.
The band are from Marseille, and are a four piece led by singer and guitarist Romain Guerre.
The video sees the band perform a session for the Froggy's delight website as a two piece in a low key version of the song Elle m'oublier, a track that also features on their album
