PAPOOZ popped up in spring 2015. Sweet melodies, swaying pop rhythms with an exotic je-ne-sais-quoi. The song was called “Ann Wants To Dance” (currently over 1 million streams on Spotify and over 1,5 million views on YouTube) made our summer. The origins of the band remained pretty mysterious. Singing in the high notes, was it a girl or a boy? Where did they come from? It sounded like British pop with Bossa Nova nonchalance. Surprisingly, those tuned voices originate from Paris. In their twentyish, Ulysse and Armand both grew up with 70’s music, digging in their parent’s records collection, from The Beach Boys to The Velvet Underground.
No wonder they became best friends, sharing the same curiosity for hidden artists from this time. They recorded their first demos on a computer mic and called themselves PAPOOZ.
Today, they added about 10 songs to “Ann Wants to Dance” for their debut album “Green Juice”, mixed by Ash Workman (Metronomy & Christine and the Queens) — mature, fresh and exotic —.
