Archipel is the new name of the band formerly knowned as Uncle jelly Fish, a band from Saintes that sealed a friendship pact with françois and the atlas mountains years ago. After a few sleepy months, those happy style crushers -playing a mix of star-folk and mystic dance music – are about to start over again in their hometown in charentes.
Nothing is forbidden on this Archipel, folk larks about with electro, synths are making out with accoustic guitars, hypnotic loops support a shaky voice. Those light melodies and unusual arrangements open the doors to a poetic universe where artistic and musical freedom is always in charge.
