It's a little difficult to glean info on Les Marinellis in English, and they sing entirely in French. Still, on high-octane new album Île De Rêve they break down language barriers by dishing up great riff-laden gobs of garage rock. There's a real nice twang to some of their guitar sounds too. They're a prolific bunch, having released an eponymous full-length exactly a year ago, and putting out earlier records as Le Kid and Les Marinellis.
Les Marinellis reportedly rocked the house at gigs SXSW last week, including at the M POUR MONTRÉAL/M FOR MONTREAL showcase. They'll do the same in Europe with a 22 date tour starting on April 1 in Paris.
