Continuing my look ahead to the acts playing at this year's Rencontres Trans Musicales de Rennes
next Month, today it's the turn of Dad Rocks!
While not strictly French (OK, they are from Denmark...) I've always been relaxed about my definition of French music in this blog, and they are signed to a French record Label, Les Disques Normal, who are based in Rennes.
The label is also home to acts like Fat Supper and Lady Jane, two acts I had the chance to get acquainted with last year. And I've been delighted to have had the chance to get to know their work.
The same applies to Dad Rocks!
They make a pretty gorgeous sound, epic and approachable, as welcome as a favourite jumper on a cold autumn day.
The act has been active since 2010, with Denmark-based Icelander Snævar Njáll Albertsson at the helm.
They released an EP that year, following it with their Mount Modern debut LP in 2011.
The album Year of the Flesh by Dad Rocks was released in September this year.
