TH Da Freak

  • France
  • Scruffy rock

Blue hair, lo-fi sound, DIY clips, the young freak Thoneau Palis, an excited head-case with a misleading air of nonchalance, is the new darling of the French independent scene. This hyper-creative spirit produces music that gives pride of place to '90s indie rock, to which someone has added power pop textures and the dazzling fuzz typical of Californian garage rock. Often labelled "slacker", in reference to his obvious obsession with Pavement, Superchunk and other fantasized '90s indie rock figures, TH Da Freak thrashes out big sounds on stage, a moving reminder of Nirvana.
