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.
The video for the new single ‘Comics’ is symbolic in it’s images taking place in city streets with young people in a bowed down or bent over manner being watched and influenced by a woman with a black dress, crown, and creepy mask that is somewhat patrolling their every action. The video was directed by French filmmaker Soandsau, who had this to say about the video,
“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’.
