Agar Agar (FR)
The new French duo who goes by the name of Agar Agar met at the Beaux Arts school of Cergy-Pontoise in the suburbs of Paris. Or, as the story goes, they met at catechism, tried a few jam sessions on Te Deum and decided to give music a go. Their first EP Cardan came out in September and is something halfway between pop and techno – an explosion of 80s hard synth bass lines brought by Armand, topped by Clara’s deep, dark, yet sensual voice, embodying the duo’s strong personality and offbeat sense of humour.
