Les interviews réalisées avant le festival
On October 27th, the English indie musician Baxter Dury released his fifth album, "Prince of Tears", an album a year in the making and an intensely personal yet brutally open meditation on a recent relationship breakdown. The Afternoon Show’s Zoé spoke with him about the album, growing up in a musical environment and the impact of emotional life events on music.
Lionel Vancauwenberghe of ‘Girls in Hawaii’
On September 29th, ‘Girls in Hawaii’ released their fifth studio album, ‘Nocturne’. The Afternoon Show’s Zoé spoke with Lionel Vancauwenberghe, the band's vocalist and guitarist to speak about the album. It is an album which "exhibits the band's view of the world and its different musical shades. Familiar yet different, melodious but precarious, this is an album of the night, of dawn and of dusk." Lionel spoke about the personal importance of music, hypnotism and the creation of their colourful music videos.
Ellen caught up with Albane Coutoux, the artistic director of the festival, who explained the thinking behind the Winter collection and talked about some of the artists festival goers can look forward to. You can catch artists playing in Rennes on Wednesday 21st and Thursday 22nd February, with La Nouvelle Vague in Saint-Malo hosting the Friday and Saturday nights of the festival.
