Electro-pop with a beautiful twist

French artist Emilie Simon returns to the UK with a performance at London’s Cargo on 20 July.

French artist Emilie Simon returns to the UK with a performance at London’s Cargo on 20 July. Her beautiful electro-pop sound has enthralled French audiences since the release of her debut album, self-titled Emilie Simon, in 2003. Emile grew up in Montpellier in a musical family. She came into her own musically after studying musicology at the Sorbonne and then electronic music at a conservatoire run by the experimental composer, Peirre Boulez. After her award-winning work on the French soundtrack for March of the Penguins, this innovative French artist has taken the rest of the world by storm. In her latest release, The Big Machine, Emilie Simon pays tribute to the city of New York. Her unique style of French electro-pop takes a new form in this album, which was inspired by the sounds of the city. Emilie’s first UK show at London’s Jazz Caf� quickly sold out, so book now to avoid disappointment. Cargo83 Rivington StreetShoreditchLondon EC2A 3AYTel: 20 8960 7449info@republicmedia.net
