cajun dance party's precocious indie pop -- smart, inventive, and energetic -- made them one of london's most talked-about new bands
London quintet with average ages that only now reaches 18, the cajun dance party begins in 2005, with the aim of participating in a battle of high school bands. his first single, the next untouchable, came to thom yorke, today I confess a fan of the band, who advised his hire to his publishing company (xl.)
the colourful life, debut album, contains 9 independent pop rock themes, 3 of which singles (colourful life, amylase and the race ? the latter with enough airplay on Portuguese radios) and has already been heard in the major European festivals (reading, oxegen, t in the park, les inrocks.)
produced by bernard butler, guitarist of the suede, with vast curriculum in what concerns production (duffy, aimee mann, libertines, tricky) the colourful life has several similarities with the sound of arcade fire and the themes addressed by the artic monkeys.
highlighting the above-mentioned the race and the hill, the view and the lights theme ambitious in its demand for new sound territories (trip-hop jazzy, black music and dissonance) that closes the album in style.
