The Sword

Brand new, totally retro and full of dirty guitars, Velvets rhythms and Gallic cool come L’Epée. Lou is a tribute to Lou Reed and sounds exactly like a tribute to Lou Reed should…

Back in May L’Epée released Dreams, an organ led shake and crawl yé-yé number with a video taking us through Paris in the 60s, from Montmartre to the Eiffel Tower, the banks of the Seine, pavement cafes and then heading out of town. L’Epée, a four piece made up of Anton Newcombe, Emmanuelle Seigner and Lionel and Marie Liminana sound like they should be blaring from a car’s radio or through the half open window of a first floor flat.
