Paris-based duo Charlotte&Magon released their new “Power In EP” some days ago. We think that you should give it a try as this is a pleasant way to welcome the warm and sunny days. The 4-track piece of easy listening music is the perfect blend of indie pop, psyche vibes, positivity and infectious choruses. “Aliens” will catch you in a second! And as good news never come alone, they also released a video clip for “What If The World” and took some time to answer some of our questions!
The story behind the Israeli-French duo is idyllic and improbable as they virtually met on MySpace more or less in 2006. After some time, Magon, who was living in Israel, invited Charlotte to meet him in his country in order to create some music together. They did it and finally, they fell in love. And it looks like Love is a big source of inspiration because as Magon wrote us:
“Power In EP”, which is the follow-up to their 2015’s “Egg Dance EP”, was made with the help of their friend and musician Nimrod Goldfarb. In 4 tracks only, the band is able to explore different facets of a global genre that they like to define as “psychedelic pop”.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/257579364″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
The duo is quite adventurous and it can be proved from the way they met each other to the diversified influences that they use in their songs. That is probably why their lyrics are often talking about the sky, the thunder and the open horizon. For this last project, they were influenced by four major artists: Nina Simone, Kate Bush, David Bowie, and John Lennon. These musicians are all shining, beyond their music, for what they have accomplished throughout their respective carreer. And that is probably why Charlotte&Magon’s music feels so positive:
To celebrate the release of the EP, they published a video for the track “What If The World” which was directed by the band itself and shot & edited by Magon.
Personally, our preference goes to the last track of the EP. “Aliens” is a simple song but the chorus is very infectious and it spreads so much energy all around.
Listen to the whole EP on Spotify and don’t forget to follow the band on Facebook.
