Juliet, Ben, and Charlie started writing songs together so they could travel to France: Juliet is from Rennes--Charlie is French-Cuban—and Ben, who's from Detroit, had always wanted to go. It’s a pragmatic origin for such a whimsical band, a group of friends who bonded over many way-too-late nights and a love of literature and classic film. The band has a particular affinity for Fellini’s carnival vibes, Bergman’s bleak profundity, and the iconoclasm of the French new-wave. Champagne Superchillin is mood-obsessed music; think soundtrack as opposed to set list.
The music is generous, aggressively charming, and adamantly resistant to genre. The songs layer breezy psych-riffs and off-kilter garage rock, stylized french-pop numbers and new-wave-y dance jams with jazz hooks and synth-grooves.
