It’s TUNESDAY. Hello!
“Sunset Lover” from Petit Biscuit soared to the top of Hype Machine’s popular chart just the other day, and I think it’s because this mellow electronic production tugs at our middle school dance heartstrings by reminding us of Gigi D’agostino’s “L’amour toujours.” But this isn’t Italo dance. Petit Biscuit is just that, a little cookie from Rouen who is already deft at conjuring up imaginative electronic textures. “Sunset Lover” has helium tinged vocals that make this incomprehensible dream of a song inviting and warm.
Petit Biscuit is the stage name of Mehdi Benjelloun, one-half of band Mount Dreams. Benjelloun’s friend LUUUL makes up the other. You’ll want to watch Petit for sure.
