Lost in the Manor PR are delighted to announce a new partnership with pioneering London label Ciao Ketchup Recordings.
The innovative record company has several mouth-watering releases lined up for the coming months, including singles and albums by Les Bonbons and The Vultures.
To whet your appetite for the carnivalesque confection that is Les Bonbons, the band have released a free download of their roisterous ‘Nouveau Départ', featuring Finn Andrews of The Veils on guest vocals.
A cross-channel ensemble of virtuoso troubadours, Les Bonbons perform vagabond pop that resonates with a shimmering wall of sound, pumped up with strings, brass and a choir of charismatic song.
Their tunes stagger and swagger the streets of old London town, supported by the murmured bon mots, sometimes sung, sometimes whispered, of vocalist Fred.
Meanwhile, guitarist Billy jives like Django, sometimes with a rock’n’roll swing, sometimes with a campside flourish. Like a Franglais mash-up of The Divine Comedy or a Gallic Jarvis Cocker at a gypsy jazz bacchanal, Les Bonbons are an enthralling and intense proposition. Magnifique, mes amis, magnifique.
