Pharaon de Winter was a relatively unsuccessful painter from Northern France. Today it’s the name of a band, but also the name of the song that changed its author’s life. The ex-leader of the bands Toy Fight and (Please) Don’t Blame Mexico - the E.Ps First Aid and Michel Foucault, and the album Concorde, in 2011, with the hit song ‘The Protocol’ - Maxime Chamoux’s musical style could be placed somewhere between North-American rock, Spoon, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Prefab Spout and XTC’s sophisticated Brit-pop. Then, he decided to cut his ties loose: “I was starting to get bored of indie rock and wanted something different", he explains. “I wanted to sing in French. I wanted to use more beautiful chords. For several months, I searched for a new shape and colour to give to these new songs. And one day, I had a kind of revelation. It was called Pharaon de Winter. From that day on, all the music I loved came together in a particular weave". Now the record is here and features ten songs naturally uniting influences ranging from the popular to the edgy: William Sheller’s precise writing, Lucio Battisti’s warmth, Steely Dan’s refined groove, Arthur Russell’s sense of adventure, Véronique Sanson’s feel for melody. The songs travel from French - mainly - to English - a few. “Love will remember Pharaon de Winter", it says. Love isn’t the only one.
