Arquettes - Who?
At the end of 2007 Arquettes released a mini album, for which they cooperated with producer Pascal Deweze (Metal Molly, Sukilove, …). With the hitsingles "It's A Relief" and "Feehler" they could arrange a nice sequence of concerts with highlights as Ancienne Belgique, Boomtown Ghent, Pukkelpop 2007 and Maanrock 2008. In the slipstream of these concerts they attended the live national television program 'Debby & Nancy' they slowly discovered The Netherlands resulting in playing the showcasefestival ZXZW in Tilburg by the end of 2008.
In 2008 they started writing new songs for their debut record. They convinced the French topproducer Stéphane "Alf" Briat to coöperate. He is known as one the architects of French sound engineering by working with Air, Phoenix, Sébastien Tellier, Etienne de Crécy, Alex Gopher, Cosmo Vitelli and many others.
Basictracks were recorded at the fairylike studios of La Frette (Feist, Patrick Watson,…) near Paris in march of 2010. Overdubs and mixing were done at "Alfs" own "Bleeps" studio in the heart of Paris. The album was mastered at Translab (Paris). What to expect? A modern pop/rock album with catchy songs in which recalcitrant grooves, bittersweet harmonies and solid rockguitars fit perfectly together.
