Sudney Valette is a some kind of a revelation to the French underground electropop. Sudney Valette. Chinese sign: fire tiger. Provincial childhood. At the age of 18, he moves to Paris to study philosophy. He rapidly loses himself in the dark rhythms of the capital' s nightclubs. He plays the piano in his tiny apartment. One day Sydney begins producing electronic music and speaking, screaming, crying, and singing into his laptop computer. His childish synth-pop-punk is poetic, destructive, and unique. Inspired by Taxi Girl, Arthur Russell, and Depeche Mode, neither quite 1980 nor 2011, his music revives the informality that most modem pop music so sorely lacks. Sydney' s first album, Plutôt Mourir que Crever (due this fall)is an exploration of his subconscious life from mystical childhood to the vice and vicissitudes of adulthood. A testament to 6 years of his life, it depicts the overwhelming emotions and obsessions that forged this unique artist. He is the tiger, Sudney Valette.
This tour is organized by Alliance Francaise network in China with the support of the Embassy of France in China and French Institute - Ministry of Foreign Affairs, on the occasion of Croisements Festival.
