Paris’ Revolver—yes, named after the iconic Beatles album—drop their new album on US shores tomorrow. Music for a While was produced by Julien Delfaud (Phoenix, Herman Dune) and evokes the summery ‘60s pop of Simon & Garfunkel and occasionally the Beach Boys. Interestingly, the band also cites English composers Henry Purcell and Benjamin Britten as influences on their music and this album in particular, especially as they aim to create a chamber pop of sorts with the harmonic complexity of classical music. Catch up with Revolver in the US this fall as they make an appearance at Los Angeles’ OhhLaLA Festival, which runs from 30 September through 2 October. In advance of tomorrow’s album release, we’re proud to present the premiere of the demo version of “Do You Have a Gun”.
