POP: Power Pop, POP: British Pop
Take an expatriate English guitarist with an unashamed pop sensibility, add an exceptional lyricist with a voice that will stop you in your tracks. Build their songs on the kind of tempered rhythm section you only find in America, and you have Cantona; a maddeningly-coherent mix of Pop (classic, power Brit, and indie flavors), Madchester
and alt country. With a sprinkle of soul on top!
Named after French footballing legend Eric Cantona, the band has been building a following in Seattle and beyond for the last year and a half, through its exciting live act and melodically-original pop songwriting. Cantona's 2005 debut EP "A Sort of Smile" was picked up quickly by Seattle's respected radio station KEXP, and has since made its way into playlists across the US.
Produced by Jon Auer of the Posies and Big Star, 'A Sort of Smile' contains six original songs that cover the full spectrum of pop: from light pychedelia to power pop, from
bossanova-style jazz to alt country. Despite the mix of styles, all the songs have the recognizable Cantona
trademark of soulful, sexy vocals, imaginative arrangements and agile rhythms. Fans and radio stations alike have been quick to single out "So Sad (So Fine)" and "Sorry" as outstanding pop songs.
2006 will see the release of Cantona's debut full-length, "Clean Living Under Difficult Circumstances", a collection of excellent pop songs drawn from its huge live repetoire. The band is already planning extensive touring in the US, UK and Europe to support the release. A tour-hardened Cantona should make for an unforgettable experience!
Uninterested in responding to trends, the Cantona approach is best summed up in one sentence:
Smile and expect great things!
