A FANCY WEEK



Seems as how we don’t have many interviews coming up (I mean surely you must have read that Chromeo interview a dozen times right about now!!) I thought that I’d use this week to invigorate interest in what is qualified as an “underrated” band that was lost among the muddle of the French touch scene, and that band you ask? FANCY!

Fancy are a glam rock band from France consisting of members MOM (Guitars & Background vocals), RAE MONE (Bass guitars & Background vocals) and their most noted and outrageous of them all Jessie CHATON.

To best describe Fancy is imagine a formula of The Sweet, Gary Glitter (ignoring the pedophilia of course) mixed in with every afro styled lead with a out there fashion sense to boot.

Oh and Speaking of Jessie, his voice has a unique tone and color behind it. Just picture Cedric from The Mars Volta only 10 octaves higher.

So…you maybe asking yourself “why should I give a shit about these guys then?” Well, I did mention they were highly underrated early. Their debut album was in 2006 and France at that time was only mostly listening to Daft Punk and later on JUSTICE (as Fancy did end up playing support of them on their American tour) which is a same cause the guys have all the elements to be a success (see the artwork and logo as proof!)

Another question you maybe asking is “Why have you got a vested interest in them?” And to answer that, they were lingering in the back of my mind as well as a select few that pondered “What the hell happened?!!”

Well the good news is, they’re still around and I got to talk to Jessie over the weekend after his manager recommended a friend request to our Facebook page.

Think of what we’re doing is being the superfans that we are and wanting to help out as much as we can to their cause…. how you ask? Well this week we will aggregate their entire catalog of tunes that are listed on their Soundcloud for a whole week on the Hype Machine.

We’ll do our best to keep you Fancy fans updated as to what the band will do next and if you “FANCY” an interest in them, check out their socials and various supplemental links

Lo Fi/Chillwave/Electropop – Summer Heart


With its Beach Boys harmonies, groovy beat and summer feeling, it may as well be the band’s coup d’état. - The Guardian
 

Not only does this song evoke the languidness of summer within the first five seconds, it also has an uncanny knack for undercutting the sweetness of its harmonies with a slightly wonky lead vocal. - The Star
