Active since 2013, France’s Rose Mercie are finally releasing their first album in 2018, and it’s definitely been worth the wait!

Rose Mercie is, above all, the coming-together of Charlène, Inès, Louann and Michèle. The chemistry between these four musicians is incredible, and propels each song in a swarm of imagery whose
sweet bitterness infuses body and soul.  Melancholic and moving, percussive and vocal, and shooting glances in the direction of an elsewhere which has never felt so close; a somewhere where Electrelane are dancing to the Shangri-Las and maybe the Raincoats.

One will find the taste for the tangents of La Ligne Claire (former group of Charlène and Inès who had a record on Bruit direct disques) mixed with a real song-writing talent and a particular care given to the voice. Indeed voices are the main instruments of this brilliant first record.

After a participation to the great motion picture “Avant la fin de l’été” (Before Summer Ends) of Maryam Goormaghtigh last year, Rose Mercie is now fully committed to defend its first album on stage in Europe as well as in North America, while keeping exciting side projects rolling (Belmont Witch, Charlene Darling, etc.). It’s the time of their lives, don’t miss it! 

Released March 2, 2018
The Band are:
Rose Mercie : Charlotte Kouklia, Inès Di Folco, Michèle Albertini, Louanne Djian
