French Artists You Should Be Listening To

If you can't be in France right now... put in your earbuds, play these artists, and pretend you're strolling down the streets of Paris

1. Claire Laffut

Claire Laffut is an artist in every sense of the word. While improvising at an open mic in a studio she experienced epiphany and said, “the sky fell on me.” Making music just felt right and she has been singing, writing, and performing ever since. Her music is honest, playful and deep. Her new album “Bleu” is amazing, but I recommend starting with her EP from 2018, “Mojo” (La fessée is my favorite!) .

2. Requin chagrin

Requin chagrin’s music is a dream-pop/rock hybrid that gives you everything that you could want. Led by Marion Brunetto, the band’s name translates to “grief shark,” a small shark present in the Mediterranean with which Marion says she identifies. Marion composes almost all of the bands music herself, and my personal favorite is her song “Adélaïde.”
