New Acts: Radio Elvis - La Traversée

This week I'm going to take a look at some of the artists playing at the MaMA event in Paris, where for three days the city hosts 40 gigs in venues around the Montmartre and Pigalle quartier.

Tonight sees a set by Paris based trio Radio Elvis, a group who, led by singer Pierre Guénard reached the finals of the Sosh Les Inrocks Lab 2014 contest for emerging talent, where they were compared to Bashung and Noir Désir.

While the contest might have been won by Feu! Chatterton, the other acts  that got there also benefitted massively from the well-deserved opportunity and the exposure.

The show at La Boule Noire tonight comes as part of their autumn tour around France, with 25 dates across  the country.

The Live aux [PIAS] Nites digital EP was released earlier this month and it follows their four track Juste avant la ruée EP released in March.
