Electro swing might not be a genre you come across every day, but it should certainly be present in all of our music collections. A mixture of Twenties jazz sounds and electro beats, it’s impossible to stand still with this music filling your eardrums. Parisian group Caravan Palace, composed of seven members, have got the electro swing thing down to a T, adding an element of Parisian chic to their jazzy, retro sound. Their latest album, Robot (2015), experiments with some slower electronic beats. While songs such as ‘Comics’ contain slightly more aggressive vocals that are reminiscent of Karen O (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), others, including ‘Lone Digger’, stick to their signature fast-paced, electronic sound.
Electro swing is a fast-growing genre, with similar groups, such as Irish ensemble Kormac’s Big Band, making waves across the music scene. Caravan Palace create music guaranteed to put a spring in your step, and their upcoming show will get you sliding round the dancefloor like a good old-fashioned flapper.
