Housse de Racket

Pierre Leroux and Victor Le Masne make up the synth-rock duo Housse de Racket. Previously musicians-for-hire with bands like Air and Phoenix, the Parisian band pump out huge palpitating beats and shimmering catchy melodies, making their songs little disco-pop gems. Their latest album, Alesia, was produced by Philippe Zdar — known for his work on Phoenix’s hit record Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix.

Featured song: “Les Hommes et les Femmes”

Alesia, the sophomore album by Housse de Racket, is out via Kitsune.
