Together they create a unique authentic '60s experience focused on the French yé yé sound of female vocalists, Françoise Hardy, France Gall, Jacqueline Taïeb, Stone, Gillian Hills, Brigitte Bardot, etc., and bands like PussyCat.
To round out their sound, they added horns by Jeff Swartz, trombone, and John Peters, trumpet, from Shitty Shitty Band Band. Their male vocalist is Serge Martial, from the French Band Résurrection.
It's mod minis, surf guitar, go-go boots, luxe harmonies, all Vox 1960s pop. Venez danser!
