New acts: C.A.R.

A chance to see electro act C.A.R. in London tonight, exactly the kind of new act I'm keen to feature this month on this blog.

C.A.R. are a project by Chloe Raunet, who prevously sang with London based electronic act Battant.
Battant were a very promising act, until the death of Joel Dever, Raunet's partner in the act, at the age of 25 in 2011.

Raunet release The Idle Eyes EP under the C.A.R. name at the end of September last year, and since then the My Friend album has been released.

Although london based for many years, Raunet was born in Canada and lived in Marseille.

I saw them play in Rennes in December,  a gig that saw them overcome some serious technical problems.

They're not the easiest act to search for on Google either.

But perseverence brings rewards, C.A.R. 's classy electro pop is reward indeed.

C.A.R. play Birthdays at 33-35 Stoke Newington Road
