French Pop – music so effortlessly cool and hip you can’t help but fall in love, Psychedelia – fuzzy dance floor music to lose yourself too. Put the two together and you have an intoxicating mix that is so lush and so perfect, and a sound that has helped soundtrack recent hit TV series such as The Queens Gambit, Killing Eve, and The Serpent.

‘Pop Psychedelique’ (released on Two-Piers) brings together the early pioneers and superstars of the French Pop sound – Serge Gainsbourg, Brigitte Bardot, with the darlings of the 60’ scene – Frances Gall, Gillian Hills, Jacqueline Taieb. Add in the more recent French Psych sounds of L’Epee and The Liminanas (both tracks used in Killing Eve), the haunting sound of Fabienne DelSol, the 60s Parisien cool of Anna Karina, the Freak Beat Psychedelic Rock of Les 5 Gentlemen, the dance floor joy of Charlotte Leslie’s Franco cover of The Capitols soul classic, the eccentric earworm of ‘Les Cornichons’ by Nino Ferrer, and the sheer Moog pop brilliance of ‘E.V.A’ by Jean Jacques-Perrey. Finish off with Stereolab’s take on French pop on ‘Cybele’s Reverie’, Air, one of the most influential electronic bands of the 2000s, go synth psych-pop on ‘Don’t Be Light’ and Pierre Henry’s epic Big-Beat anthem ‘Psyche Rock’ rounds things off perfectly – Pop Psychedelique – pure joy!
