The French Pop Dream features the first English-language recordings of the award-winning French chanteuse Anne Brugiere. Inspired by the 60s ye-ye pop of Francoise Hardy and Brigitte Bardot, the French Pop Dream is a song-cycle about longing and belonging, set between France and England. We have been played on BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music, BBC London, French Radio London and various US college radio stations and had some lovely reviews, some reproduced below. We have also recorded the theme to an American TV show set in Paris called L’Amour or Less.
