Slove are driven as much by the flamboyance of yesterday’s indie-pop as they are by the urgency of today’s electro. The two founding members, Léo Hellden and Julien Barthe, are involved in several major projects on the French music scene (Aswefall and Tristesse Contemporaine for the first, and Plaisir de France and Sweetlight /Abusator for the second). Slove are getting ready to release, in September, their breakthrough album which blends ice and fire and pays subtle homage to the indie-dance bands (Pale Saints, Slowdive, Stones Roses) the two comrades worship. Slove give us a fresh take on stylish hedonistic pop backed by modern and sophisticated arrangements.

Leo Hellden is a Swedish musician with a wealth of musical experience. After serving as a guitarist with Jay Jay Johanson in the late 90s, he moved to Paris to write music and immerse himself in the literary classics. He played in the band Véo Véo before embarking on the production of a debut album with Clément Vaché: Aswefall’s record was released in 2006 to critical acclaim. The duo went on to record a second album in 2010, while Léo also became very much involved in the Slove project alongside Julien Plaisir de France as well as in Tristesse Contemporaine alongside Maik and Narumi.

Forever treading the line between innocence and provocation, Julien Plaisir de France (1973) has been active on the French music scene for these past ten years, his motto being “if you want it done, do it yourself”. After an indie-pop fuelled decade in the 90s, the DJ threw himself into the rave circuit in 1995 and, in 2000, into composing in all kinds of style via labels such as Freak n’Chic, Turbo, Skint and Output... His numerous residencies and DJ sets took him to many clubs in France and abroad (The End, Fabric, Pulp, Paris Paris, Rex Club, Les Bains), and he saw his various radio appearances (FG, Nova, RTBF…) as opportunities to present playful and dancey music sequences, the sole aim being his own/our “Plaisir” (i.e. enjoyment)! In line with his quest for enjoyment, his love for French film (Eric Rohmer, Chabrol, etc.) and nostalgic photography (David Hamilton) enabled him to work in sound design prior to recording his first album with Slove in 2010.
