Johnny Mafia

  • France
  • Garage rock surge

With their wild, biting rock, these bad kids born in the '90s embody the new generation of garage rock made in France. In other words: they scream snarling lyrics with conviction at a high voltage tempo, like a huge electric shock. True offspring of The White Stripes or The Strokes, Johnny Mafia unleash a rock born in the epoch of the Ramones, which they enrich with their own influences, displaying both respect and disdain for fundamentals. Johnny Mafia is spontaneity combined with an unstoppable melodic sense, an exhortation to dive into the open sea that comes after about two and a half seconds. We counted.
