Also, Michael plays for the group Mumbly and the electro project they call Booly. He also makes photos ********** Excerpt from the band's biography: Watoo Watoo consist primarily of Pascale & Michaël, who live in Bordeaux. Michaël usually records new songs on his computer, e-mails friends to help with the guitars, and then asks Pascale to add her lovely voice... Over the years, Watoo Watoo have released 3 albums & 2 E.P.s on various labels throughout the world & have made appearances on an impressive number of compilations. The music was strictly indiepop in Watoo Watoo's early years, but now other influences have surfaced. "Felt is still an obsession but Serge Gainsbourg is also one. I also discovered a lot of new music in the last few years, so bossa beats or jazz chords sometimes subconsciously appear when I write a new song", says Michaël. Le tourbillon ep is released by Duffelcoat Records, almost 5 years after the duo’s last lp, La fuite.

The ep features an ode to Felt called Whirlpool of Pride (tourbillon means whirlpool in French), an acoustic version of Ce qu’il va en rester (a stereolab-esque song released on La fuite), and four covers: L'amour en fuite (an Alain Souchon tune, soundtrack of François Truffaut’s Love on the run); Jennifer Juniper (which appeared on a tribute compilation to Donovan years ago; Pitchfork described the song as “the jewel of the bunch (…), a brilliant recasting of baroque pop as skittering, low-key electronica”); Tuesday’s secret (a brilliant cover of a sadly almost forgotten Felt b-side), and Tombé pour la France, an Etienne Daho song which was a huge French hit in the 80’s, in a surprising Young Marble Giants style. Watoo Watoo likes and may be inspired by: Astrud Gilberto, Belle & Sebastian, the Beatles, Blur, the Buzzcocks, Charles Trénet, the Cure, David Bowie, the Feelies, Felt, Iggy Pop, Julien Baer, the Kinks, Lali Puna, 70’s soundtracks, Luna, the Pale Saints, Peter Astor, Serge Gainsbourg, Sergio Mendes, the Smiths, St Etienne, some jazz (Stan Getz, Keith Jarrett…), Tarwater, the Velvet Underground, the Wedding Present… Read more on Last.fm.
