Californian fuzz mixed with Normandic charm – that’s Granville. A quartet, Melissa Dubourg is the female singer. They made a few singles, notably Slow (great video), and the just released Jersey b/w La Ville Sauvage (see Bandcamp). They cite Best Coast and Françoise Hardy as influences. Keep an eye on’m! Listen to a Filles & Garçons remix here. Acoustic session here.

Granville – La ville sauvage

Comment te dire instrumental

Yes, great instrumental version of Comment te dire adieu (see above). But who plays it? What orchestra? Is it available on vinyl, cd? It sounds a lot like the backing of the Hardy-version, but it’s not. The girl who uploaded this version doesn’t know. I searched Discogs and Originals, but to no avail. Maybe you, dear FS-reader, can help? (Did you know, by the way, that Amanda Lear did a version of Comment te dire too? See a funny lip-synch video here. No, that’s not Amanda, but it is her voice)

UPDATE: Got it! Here.
