Alone with Everybody: Isolation row (2013)

Camille y Louisa Bénâtre forman Alone with Everybody, un dúo de Toulousse que en esto de la música va de cara: Pop delicado, de tintes acústicos e intimistas. Ni más ni menos. Ningún aditamento extra ni concesión alguna a arreglos de producción.
Sus referentes los expresan igual de claros: Beatles, CSNY, Smiths, Lee Hazlewood, Beach Boys, Josh Rouse, Eels, Richard Hawley… Y lo cierto es que les ha salido un trabajo de debut que, si eres amante de este tipo de sonoridades, vas a tener que echarle un oído. Supongo que no querrán ser los nuevos She and Him (y más viniendo desde Francia), pero les podrían hacer algo de sombra por momentos…
Por cierto, su álbum se estrenó el mismo día que el Please Please Me de los de Liverpool. ¿Casualidad?

___________________________

Brother & sister duo (Camille & Louisa Bénâtre), Alone With Everybody is more than a family history. It’s about long years devoted to pop music through the first cds they bought and the vinyls their parents listened to. They grew up with the Beatles & Crosby Stills and Nash then wrote the first songs in Paul McCartney’s tongue altough living in south France.
Their debut album – Isolation Row, to be released on March the 22nd – is a collection of delicate pop songs with elements of midwest folk and americana. Everything’s built around the lead vocal melody; the heart of the song. Then comes acoustic guitars, synth arrangements and sometimes a piano. Discrete percussions can be heard, but no drums. 
Compared to Gerry Rafferty by Mike Coykendall (M. Ward, She & Him, Blitzen Trapper), Alone With Everybody oscillates between american and english folk songwriting, between London & Portland folk scenes, between Lennon & McCartney or just… between minor & major chords. They idolize Nashville hero Josh Rouse as much as Sheffield crooner Richard Hawley. And Woody Allen” (Facebook)
