Parad [french pop-rock]



PARAD: A new album, a new name a new skin for Laurent Paradot who we could call paradox for all we know. He used to be a punk and a virtuoso, singing nonsense in some mockglish of his own, and now he’s a writer of fine lyrics that go deep into french tradition.
It would be simplistic though to view him as another french singer. Far from the usual clichés of french singers he wanders through pop, indie hip hop and electronic melancholy. Even better than a blend of various ideas and styles he creates his own : expressonist spoken word on a creaking background, modern and colorfull melodrama. In this new adevnture our favorite one man band of all time has been joined by his all time mate Pierre Louis AKA Luis Francesco Arena (with whom he played in headcases since the 90′s), François pierre Fol on the cello and norbert Labrousse on the keyboards (both members of Luis Franecsco Arena and le prince Miiaou)
