Papooz – Figs And Gorgonzola

Rhythm guitarist Armand Penicaut and vocalist/lead guitarist Ulysse Cottin are Papooz. They met whilst studying Literature at the Sorbonne university in their home city of Paris. Since forming the band, they reinvented themselves with every new album. Their debut Green Juice was light and fresh, but follow-up Night SketchesΒ was more groovy.

On new single Figs And Gorgonzola, they replace the synths and groovy bass with piano and a lush guitar. This makes for a more folky approach. One could easily mistake Papooz for an American band, but they’re decidedly French. And still, this new single fits perfectly in their earlier output. Probably because of their trademark androgynous voices. Hopefully a third album is on its way.
