In 2003-2004, I used to live in Stockholm. I did not know any real Swedish bands except The Cardigans and The Hives. Oh yeah, there was also Eskobar. The thing is I was supposed to study statsvetenskap (“political science”) up north. But to be honest, I studied gigs at Debaser and at the Stockholms Universitet. This is where I saw my first “local band”. A Swedish band, then. Name? Paris. The gig? Brilliant. I bought the record at the venue, it was the band debut one. Every member signed my copy, but the bassist – the only one in the band who happened to visit Paris, at this time if I’m correct – broke his pen on my record so he made a stain on it. Anyway, Annika – the singer – told me they picked the name “Paris” just because it sounded good and Emma was not already Emmon.

Nine years later, I’m sitting in a sofa on my apartment in Paris, listening to Say it, the new single of the band. A come back : the band remaint silent since 2007. A little bit less pop and more electro than their first tunes. But still a catchy feeling and a nostalgic atmosphere. It’s not always nice to see your ex after a while, but I confess I’m quite happy to listen to Paris again.

PS : EP “From Paris to Pluto” expected this year.
