April March, Chrominance Decoder

by Sarah Zupko

 

Last year Air proved there’s still plenty of relevance in the French pop genre and now American April March is chiming in with her own spin on the cabaret and Euro-pop stylings of the Serge Gainsbourg-inspired set. March has quite an eclectic past that includes work as a professional cartoon animator and stints in three previous bands—The Pussywillows, The Shitbirds, and The Haves. On Chrominance Decoder, her stock-in-trade is airy Euro-pop, replete with loungey synthesizers, French horns, casios, and orchestral bits. Fans of the Pizzicato Five, Combustible Edison, and Stereo Total will enjoy this charm-fest that features a mix of French and English vocals.
