Feu! Chatterton

  • France
  • Poetic rock dandyism

A flamboyant quintet with poetic surrealism, Feu! Chatterton quickly became the new figurehead of a French-language music scene in the throes of an identity crisis. Inspired by their glorious elders Gainsbourg, Bashung and Christophe, these Parisian dandies combine the fine pen of the extravagant Arthur, a Rimbaud of modern times, with delightful instrumentations that marry subtle progressive rock, pop, literature and touches of electro. A writing of rare elegance and a melancholy libertarian lyricism that leaves in its wake a dangerously sensual whiff of absinthe.
