Toboggan

Quentin and Lola make synthpop in the veins of Elli & Jacno, Niagara and (more recent) Videoclub and Clea Vincent. I am in love with these neon pop sounds

Tess Merlot

Tess Merlot, Holland’s blonde chanson mascotte, made a pretty new single with a summer vibe. This video is a live rendition:
