(New York, NY) The French Gypsy Phenomenon is back at it again! Perfecting their trademark “Electroswing”, Caravan Palace returns with their sophomore album “Panic”. The perfect blend of Jazz, Swing and Electropop, alive throughout the album, is guaranteed to keep you on your feet with its bouncy, vivacious tunes. Released on March 5th, “Panic”—the follow-up to their self-titled debut album which went on to sell more than 150,000 copies — is the result of two years worth of writing and recording, with it’s curvaceous beats and legendary harmonies. “Dirty Side”, the first single from the album is available for download HERE now.
Bonding over their love of electronic music, Charles Delaporte, Arnaud Vial and Hugues Payen came together after working for a film production company to provide a soundtrack to silent pornographic films. After Music Producer Loic Barrouk took interest in the band, DJ Antoine Toustou and lead vocalist Colotis Zoe were brought in, paving the way for their first appearance at the Django Reinhardt Jazz Festival in 2007 and a contract with Wagram Music record label shortly after.
