(8 months ago)
New Delhi , Nov 8 : Popular brands, Colt Silvers and Last Train are all set to take a multi-city tour in 10 cities as a part of the third edition of Bonjour India festival in the months of November and December.
The Bonjour India festival is one of the biggest and the most ambitious initiatives between France and India.
Hailing from the city of Strasbourg, Colt Silvers comprises of vocalist Tristan, bass player Nicolas, guitarist Florian and drummer Julien.
Termed as the French Alt J by the popular magazine Les Inrockuptibles, the band produces intense indie electro rock, which is inspired by pop culture.
Colt Silvers started gaining popularity beyond France within a year of their inception with the debut release 'Night of the Living Robots' in 2009.
Their debut tour in India will also see them perform at this year's NH7 Weekender, Pune.
A true-blue rock band from the East of France, Last Train is a story of four childhood friends - vocalist Jean-Noel Scherrer, guitarist Julien Peultier, Drummer Antoine Baschung and bass player Timothee Gerard, who have been making music together for over a decade.
Their first two EPs 'The Holy Family' and 'Fragile' received critical acclaim, launching their music career.
Earlier during this year, the band released a full length album 'Weathering' on their own label, 'Cold Fame Records'.
Naveen Deshpande, Founder, Mixtape stated, "I had an opportunity to watch these two fun, high energy straight up rock n roll acts last year at IOMMA (Indian Ocean Music Market) and they blew my mind away. I instantly connected with their music and knew that their music is something the audience here will really appreciate."
"This is by far one of the biggest projects we have done where 2 international artists will be traveling the length and
breadth of the country and I don't think any other artist has ever achieved that before. Really excited about this tour," Deshpande added.
