I don’t get too many song submissions from French bands, but perhaps since I’m currently in the process of booking a trip to the south of France later this month, I was immediately drawn to hearing this song “Comme Toi” by Bordeaux-based artist Ariel Ariel.
Singing in both creole and French, Ariel Ariel combines his Antillean roots with contemporary indie pop through colourful yet introspective songs. On stage, he performs with three other musicians, including singer Blandine Millepied. Ariel Ariel’s first EP is set to be released in spring 2016, in the meantime, take a listen to “Comme Toi” via the Nathaniel H’Limi directed video below.
