In just two albums, the group STEVANS, started by French-Swiss Yvan Franel, has made its mark on the music scene.
From catchy hits like “Monday’s Wedding” to concerts on the biggest of stages (Paleo Festival, Montreux, London, New York, Paris, Lisbon…) to opening for prestigious groups like the Kaiser Chiefs, Deep Purple, Snow Patrol, to collaborations with the talented Will Jackson, producer of the Pigeon Detectives and Kaiser Chiefs…STEVANS has travelled far, all the way to the brink of “Rupture.” As its name suggests, this third album is a turning point in the group’s history.
Yvan Franel leads his new band to contemporary territory, where introspection won’t keep you from dancing, flights of imagination aren’t empty of thought, and a hint of melancholy always lets an exhilarating irony filter through. This album is a mirror of the times, where post-modern disenchantment takes on the hues of a new transparent hedonism combined with a creative energy, feeding those hungry to open new horizons. We’re dancing, but we’re not fooled.
With an electro-pop esthetic draped over songs that are intense and melodic at the same time, STEVANS has succeeded in blending elegance with efficiency – the cornerstone of a music where echoes of the eighties meet funky beats, and snippets of brit pop and electronic sounds converge. Also creeping into this eclectic mix are elements evoking the music of Franz Ferdinand, Daft Punk, Nile Rodgers and Two Door Cinema Club.
