Description

Equipe de Foot is a French duo of singer-songwriters who record pop songs and play them much louder on stage. Since their formation in 2015, Alex & Mike have played hundreds of gigs, from the sweaty basements of their hometown of Bordeaux to the stages of nationally renown festivals and European venues, making a solid name for their band, and little by little becoming part of the new wave of French rock.

Equipe de Foot now admit that their flaws might be their greatest strength, and bring their love for English and American indie pop music and production to the forefront in their songs. For 'Geranium' they have chosen to work with producer and sound engineer (and fellow Beatles fan) Johannes Buff (Thurston Moore, Lee Ranaldo, The Drones, Dalek and other various amazing projects) at Shorebreaker studio in Tarnos, France. A meaningful choice both in terms of technical and artistic skills, Johannes was able to assemble Equipe de Foot's good old wall of guitars, as well as reach the heart of their pop songs to make the whole thing gloriously shine, without altering the charming homemade vibe emanating from their beloved demos.

The album is a constant rollercoaster, alternating lo-fi ballads and powerful anthems, but always with a twist, be it a pitched loop on a chorus or an auto tuned solo trumpet at the end of a sad piano song.
