Caravan Palace – ‘Comics’
The creative group of instrumentalists and recording studio wizards, Caravan Palace, blend sounds of hip-hop, jazz, and electro-synth in their new video for the single, ‘Comics’, coming up on the group’s third studio album, <I°_°I>, which will be released October 16th 2015. The band have also announced a European tour with some UK dates in December and a few festivals late this summer.
“It is a moral tale that takes place in the street, but without cynicism. A breach of hope, but without naivety”.
‘Comics’ is a spectacular song that has a vintage style with influences of hip-hop and jazz that combine with modern synth heavy electronic dance music of today and will be featured on their upcoming album <I°_°I>. The single boasts a hopping beat with retro synth sounds that have a vintage vibe and a vocal that is manipulated, heavily effected, and dramatically swirled around in stereo. The synth parts are bold yet provide a retro sound that take the lead as the vocals take a break with embellished pitch bending and ear catchy melodies. The new album from Caravan Palace, <I°_°I>, will be released October 16th but it is also available for pre-order allowing the single ‘Comics’ to be available immediately after purchasing the pre-ordered album.

Caravan Palace consist of talented musicians and recording artists Charles Delaport, Hughes Payen, Antoine Toustou, and Arnaud Vial together with Zoe Colotis, Camille & P-M. In 2008 they released their debut album that charted in their native France attaining a platinum sales award, launching the band globally, and defining a new original sound with the single ‘Jolie Coquine’. Their second album, Panic, released in 2012 is always a pleasure to listen to whether at home or in a burlesque bar, with a bit more of a experimental sound and great tracks such as ‘Clash’ and ‘Rock It For Me’.
