I think Cole Porter said it best, when he wrote: ‘I love Paris every moment, Every moment of the year, I love Paris, why oh why do I love Paris? Because my love is here’. Many, many songs were written about Paris, and two upcoming filles added their own: Lise and Nach. Sidenote: what is it with these young artists choosing hard to trace, or confusing monikers? Is this the influence of witch house? It took me some time to figure out that this Nach (see a video of her here) isn’t this Nach. And Lise? It’s this girl, pictured on the left. Both released EP’s, Nach’s has slightly more songs. I think I like Lise’s Paris-ode best, because of the Camille-like vocals, not because of that English part. Her cover of 50 Cent’s P.I.M.P. is quite funny. Once. Maybe twice. But that video of her Paris song makes me want to jump behind the wheel and race down south. To be near, my love.
Lise – Paris
Nach – Ce soir, Paris
Brune is a new, charcoal-eyed beauty on the Filles-front. Yes, that’s Brune, not BB Brunes or Paris Brune – it didn’t help that Brune’s song is called Paris while googling (though not as difficult as trying to find the band C++). Brune’s voice sounds a lot like Cécile Hercule’s, which is a good thing. If you go to her Myspace you can hear the lovely L’ Hiver en été, also available on the upcoming EP (see an acoustic version here). Here’s the video for Paris. [Thanks John]
