It may not surprise you that beneath the beguiling cultural image of Bordeaux's wineries rests a thriving music scene.
It's a city that plays host to Alba Lua, an intriguing alt folk trio that deliver heavy pop sensibilities with a rootsy prowess. Their music isn't conventional and moves from vivid soundscapes and soothing sounds to back room folk with an effortless glaze.
Their debut EP, 'The Ballad of Joseph Merrick', is set to be released on June 28th and has been produced by New York born Dave Bianchi, described in La Vanguardia as an "unusually brilliant talent."
Definitely ones to watch.
