Denmark’s not really the first country you think of when you go look for French singing, fragile girls. That is probably why I missed the memo’s about Cours lapin, a Danish foursome consisting of three guys and one girl who make money making music for films and documentaries. The girl’s Louise Alenius, and if you’re a big Biolay-fan you know her babyvoice from a song on Benjamin’s Clara et Moi-soundtrack. Cours lapin’s first album is out now, sporting 11 songs that meander between Amélie-style chansons (like Mes larmes secretes) and darker, Portishead-ish stuff like Débutants. Cache Chache was kind of a hit in the blogosphere (see?), I’m posting end-song La Fin.
