Franco-Spanish Vacabou is a female-fronted folktronica duo whose lightly indie-rock influenced style (arguably) lies somewhere between Telepopmusik, Mandalay and Husky Rescue. The sound is a hybrid of catchy synth hooks, strummed guitar, orchestral strings, live bass, mellow, downtempo beats, and airy, but raw female vocals, and although some songs feature male vocals, they are the exception.
The tone of singer Pascale Saravelli's voice is one I've heard before in independent electronic acts from Germany and France. It's a peculiar delivery that is at once warm, inviting, honest, and charmingly off-key, yet still in-key. Musician Juan Feliu brings a sombre, poppy, and dreamy atmosphere to the music of Vacabou, in a combination of synth keys, leads and strings, and folksy guitar work over subtle downtempo beats.
