Despite the fact that we’ve featured Adam Kesher a few times on electronic rumors over the years, and I know it’s a band, I can’t help seeing the name and thinking it’s a dude!
If you’re new to Adam Kesher then, no, it’s not a dude, its’ five French guys making energetic ElectroPop & Electro-Indie who’s second album ‘Challenging Nature’ finally sees a release, after long delays, this April.
The album hits the ground running immediately, having been produced by Chromeo’s Dave 1 and mixed by Dave’s Brother A-Track, Zdar from Cassius and Pierrick Devin (Alex Gopher, Cassius, Cut Copy). With that production tem behind you, you can’t go wrong.
So, what does the album sound like? Involving for a start, it’s the kind of album that envelops you while listening. With a sound akin to Fenech-Soler, in that they have that Indie tinged, post Nu-Rave, ElectroPop sound. Infused with a hint of funk, I presume Dave 1’s doing, Adam Kesher compliment their synthesisers with a variety of instruments, sometimes used in unexpected ways and being French, of course, there is a suggestion of Phoenix in the songs too.
Adam Kesher have made a French Indie Rock record with synthesizers that get increasingly Disco as it progresses, what they have also made is the prefect record for the time, this is a real 2010/2011 record, distilling what’s happening right now in Disco and Indie into ten tracks designed to get you jumping around.
If you like your ElectroPop to have an Indie slant, or if your a Fenech-Soler fan you defiantly need to check out Adam Kesher.
