The artists' collective around Flavian Graber toured the back of their sleeves between his debut and his successor, and it wasn't too bad to play at even the smallest locations. But there was still enough time in between to tinker with these twelve Indiepop highlights, which consistently inspire the Indiepop connoisseur. Charming melodies, a charming mixture of electronic elements and acoustic guitars, and a great desire for unusual rhythms and idiosyncratic themes - all often found in one song ("August Piccard", "Polar Bears") - prevent the Swiss from being prematurely assigned to mainstream pop. A large part of the species relatives mentioned have already arrived there. But even they started out unadapted once. What also makes the Paris inventors likeable: they would have an absolutely sure hand for stadium anthems ("Farmer" with his Peter Gabriel loans), but seem to prefer to celebrate great emotions and boundless dreams in a more intimate setting.
