François And The Atlas Mountains - Plaine Inondable

A wonderful indie pop secret
François And The Atlas Mountains - Plaine Inondable
Discovering Francois is like being let in on a wonderful indie pop secret, and his twee, pretty melodies are something you’ll only want to share with a select few.

Since arriving in the UK from France a few years ago, Francois has become a staple part of the Bristol music scene and even been a touring member of Camera Obscura. His third album, ‘Plaine Inondable’, marks a departure from the homemade character of his first two, eschewing the casiotones and xylophones for a more professional sound and sophisticated arrangements.

He’s lost none of his charm in the process, mixing English and French lyrics seamlessly and with the same subtle emotion.
