Watoo Watoo consist primarily of Pascale & MichaŽl, who now live in Bordeaux after spending 30 years in Paris and it's suburbs. MichaŽl usually records new songs on his computer, e-mails friends to help with the guitars & the piano, and then asks Pascale to add her lovely voice. But Pascale is always busy doing something else, so MichaŽl often needs to ask her some time in advance. Over 10 years, Watoo Watoo have released 2 albums & 2 E.P.s on various labels throughout the world & have made appearances on an impressive number of compilations. The music was strictly indiepop in Watoo Watoo's early years, but now other influences have surfaced. "Felt is still an obsession but Serge Gainsbourg also is one. I also discovered a lot of new music in the last few years thanks to the internet, so bossa beats or jazz chords sometimes subconsciously appear when I write a new song", says MichaŽl. Among the new songs on La Fuite are a melancholic waltz, a pop song with 60s orchestral arrangements, an electronic tune, a bossa and even a funk number resembling a 70s movie soundtrack. Pascale's soft voice and the apparent smoothness of the melodies pull everything together, stamping the Watoo Watoo brand on the entire production.
