COUNTDOWN: 2 Days to Coachella – Housse De Racket

April 10. 2012 | By Dustin Shey

Hey, do you remember that band Phoenix that just happened to come out of nowhere (France) about two years ago, play all the music festivals, put their songs on all the commercials only to leave us waiting another two years on an album that would meet the likes of Wolfganng Almadeus? If you’re tired of waiting, meet our favorite new French-pop duo, Housse De Racket.

Pierre Leroux and Victor Le Masne make up Housse De Racket, and if you really know your French music history for the past few years, you must already know who they are. For everyone else, here’s the quick and dirty.

Housse De Racket was formed by Leroux and Masne after their musical chops earned them “for hire” positions on stages with acts such as Phoenix and Air, along with a number of other bands you’ve probably never heard of.

If you’re a fan of Empire of The Sun, Phoenix, or Cut Copy, we promise you’ll highly enjoy this French soundtrack early on Sunday. Listen to them below.
