Daprinski could well be a FillesSourires-regular. Benoit d’Aprigny (his real name) is from Saint-Lo and loves ‘ces femmes qui murmurent à votre oreille et vous touchent en plein coeur’, like Anna Karina and Jeanne Moreau. Music-wise, he’s very much inspired by Michel Colombier, Philippe Sarde, J-C Vannier and of course Serge Gainsbourg. Last year, an instrumental track appeared on a compilation (Spotify-link) which sounds like an unfolding of a masterplan, a revelation of a modus operandi. On the EP, Benoit sings, and gets help from quite a few of those ‘femmes qui murmerent à votre oreille': Loane, Chat, Elsa Motin and one ‘Emilie M’. She’s the gal who backs him up on the plushy Des X, pun very much intended. More here.
