The Sunny Street
The Sunny Street : "They hurt you everyday + Rainy hearts EP" (Lavender)
Some may remember with sparkling eyes the very short and charming debut album “We sang a yeye song” by Electrophönvintage released 2 years ago on Unique Records. At the time, the french band, carefully driven by singer-songwriter Rémi Parson, was a new bright ray of light in the cloudy sky of shimmering and naive guitar pop “made in France”…
TSS was born as a kind of recreation during this impatient summer before we went to
Tell us more about this departure , this breaking off and this dream which seems to have inspired you , giving a solemn and melancholic tone to your compositions, compared to Electrophönvintage…
Last year, Delphine was finishing her studies and I had found nothing but a job in a factory, so our English dream came back stronger than ever with nothing holding us back anymore. "They Hurt You Everyday" allowed us to sort our feelings out, sad and cheerful, before going for it! Things were really jostling together, to say the least!
Was it obvious for you that these songs could be sung by no-one else but Delphine ?
My first song was instrumental, I didn't feel like singing and I thought Delphine would tell me, with some reason, it was no use keeping on doing projects …
But as we listened, we found it very different, it had its own sensitivity. So Delphine joined me and her voice made everything clear, the project was now making sense and the songs were created in no time.
What is your secret to render in such a good way this string sound on some titles, despite your "bedroom" configuration?
I cobbled up and my computer suffered from it. I recorded the guitars and the voices with the small microphone on the screen and the rest with a cheap software with these strings sounds …I found them very moving because they sounded imposing and fake at the same time. It was a quite sad combination, I think, and it was what I was looking for. I superimposed several layers. As I was not in a hurry, I tried to work harder than I used to, to pay more attention to details. In the end, I was surprised it all didn't sound too cheap!!
Is there any chance for a second album by Electrophönvintage to be released this year?
I'm afraid it won't happen this year unfortunately. We've met people in
Big thanks to Rémi and Eve
