Ou Est Le Swimming Pool

Riotous electro-pop

Ou Est Le Swimming Pool
Having met and formed in Camden, Ou Est Le Swimming Pool are the latest in a line of bands to come out of North London’s music mecca, but it is the area’s darker side, rather than its musical tapestry that informs their music most. “I love it, but Camden’s pretty shit,” offers Joe before Caan interrupts, “Being surrounded by all these crack heads and gunshots does inspire you to get in the studio and write, so I suppose Camden does influence our music!” The band’s riotous brand of electro-pop nods to ’80s legends the Pet Shop Boys and Duran Duran, yet they refuse to be shoved under the ’80s revival umbrella.
