Biography

Total Warr is a newly formed Parisian duo who make rhythmic, rich pop songs. Its members — who go by the charming French nicknames Kiki and Guigui, were longtime friends in different hardcore bands before they decided to hook up. According to Kiki, the pair visited (Euro) Disneyland with their girlfriends, then wrote, recorded, and produced the first two tracks that make up their just-released Cascades EP. The first “Gangsta Rap” begins with a little harsh synth arpeggio and handmade percussion, before the pair add in juicier synths, a drum machine, and acoustic guitar. “I Don’t Need Your Friendship” focuses more on the pair’s boyish harmonies. Guitar feedback, the sound of someone eating popcorn (?), and a tambourine form its beat. Think Yeasayer, or of recent Frenchkiss signee Young Man while listening to these tracks. Or think of Panda Bear and Disneyland.
