Winsome, wicked and witty, Chic Gamine embody the '60s girl-group vibe all grown up and living in a new century. Wall-of-sound harmonies, hip-shaking beats - these women could be straight out of Motown, before you throw in the curveball of French pop and four rotating lead-singers. By all the laws of the music business, this group is like the unicorn - it probably shouldn't exist, let alone be performing at the Olympics and winning Juno Awards. And yet, here they are, soon to release their official U.S. debut, a group singing soulful, captivating four-part songs that artfully span the musical map.
Chic Gamine (which translates roughly as stylish mischievous young thing - let's face it, the French say these things so much better) will tease and tempt you with a nostalgia-inspired, fresh new sound - the mix is indescribable, but unbearably tasty. Do you believe in Chic Gamine? You'd be a fool not to.
