Juveniles brought out their famous ‘We are Young’ with the Parisien label Kitsuné in 2011, a heady refrain sung with a post-modern crooner voice.
It is with The Smiths, Hot Chip, Cut Copy or even the DFA label team as imaginary godfathers that the duo from Rennes draws their influences. Juvenile cultivated its idealistic pop with a debut album produced by Yuksek, developed to treat troubled souls and accompany sleepless nights. It delivers utopic and sensual pop which dreams eternal and continuously plays with fire.
Juveniles expresses the different states of youth which, in one fraction of a second, can pass from total bliss (We are Young, Fantasy) to the worst of times (Washed Away). But rather than drown in melancholy, the two boys prefer to tame these feelings and to make them dance and to counter sadness with sensuality, allowing for eccentricity along the way. While waiting for their second album to come out, the group wins over audiences live, in France and internationally: Great Britain, Sweden, Belgium, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, Turkey, Canada, and this year, China, for the Strawberry Festival.
