THE GUARDIAN (UK)
" "[It’s] a sea voyage from France to New York then by land across the southern route of the States ending on the coast in California with percussive flashes of time travel mayhem along the way." So there we have it. We’re not exactly sure which bit of the journey first single Des Tics Et Des Tocs – premiered here – is supposed to represent, but we’re taking a rough guess that it’s the France-based part of the narrative. Over jaunty acoustic guitar, a loose-limbed bassline and strangely tweaked backing vocals that rise and fall throughout, it couldn’t be more French sounding if it was walking around the set of a Jean-Luc Goddard film and whistling a Serge Gainsbourg song. This is a good thing, obviously."
