The Treacherous French are an eclectic indie rock band hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area. The songs they write are catchy yet complex, while staying true to their indie, blues, country, and alt-rock roots. The lineup consists of a group of four multi-instrumentalists from differing backgrounds ranging from folk rock to punk rock to dance rock to Celtic jazz folk fusion. The semi-standard lineup of rock band instruments is well represented: Phil on bass, Charlie on guitar and vocals, Cara on drums and vocals, and Olivier on keys and accordion – but if you listen closely, you may hear some twists as well: accordion, mandolin, harmonica, glockenspiel, washboard, kalimba – and this blend of styles and instrumentation is what makes The Treacherous French what it is.
