Biography

BB Brunes is a French pop rock band, part of the “new French rock scene” (la nouvelle scène rock française).

In 2000, Adrien Gallo, Karim Réveillé and Raphaël Delorme, childhood friends, formed the band “Hangover” with songs exclusively in English.Some years later, Raphaël left the band at the moment when they were signing their first contract.The new lineup found a new guitarist, Félix Hemmen, who enjoyed their music. In 2007, the bassist Bérald Crambes joined the band.

The band took the name BB Brunes, inspired by the name of the song “Initials BB” by Serge Gainsbourg and by Paris’s boulevard Brune, where the band then did their rehearsals.The band’s musical influences are punk and rock groups from the 1960s and 1970s as well as current groups such as The Strokes, Amy Winehouse, The Clash, David Bowie, Ray Charles and singers like Serge Gainsbourg, Jacques Dutronc,etc. Their lyrics are mostly in French.

In 2009, the group won a Victoires de la musique in the category ‘Group or artist stage revelation of the year’.

They have sold over 2 milllion albums and singles in France alone, 3.8 million in Europe.

    I don't really understand the comparisons with The Strokes. The Strokes have a pretty specific kinda fuzzy, feverish sound. BB Brunes seem more of a relaxed, britpop style group to me. Maybe it's there and I'm just not seeing it though.

    j'aime pas du tout, j'y arrive pas. il n'y a aucune sonnance qui me titille. ça ressemble à de la pop UK pas terminé. Du stellastar sans le rock, du Starsailor sans les bonnes mélodies, bref BB brunes j'aime pas, il manque un truc dans la recette française. En plus ça sonne trop pop et dance et vraiment pas rock du tout, même pas electro ni punk.
