You just gotta love a classically trained rock band. Ambroise Willaume (vocals, guitar, piano) and Jeremie Arcache (cello, vocals) met at France’s prestigious Maitrise Notre Dame de Paris music school, The pair later teamed up with Christophe Musset (vocals, guitar) to form the basis for their current band, REVOLVER. While their name is taken from the influential Beatles album, it’s a fitting description for the group’s evolving sound. Pairing classical chamber music with influences such as Elliot Smith and The Velvet Underground might seem like a particularly daunting task, until you hear the masterful way they pull these influences together. The second LP is coming to North America in January 2012 (EMI / ASTRALWERKS).
