Three piece collective Des Roses hail from Nantes, France writing and recording music that disarms any defence mechanism with its delightful vintage dream pop! Balancing somewhere between Woman’s Hour luminous indie pop (The Bond), Visage's analog synth melancholy (Old Mistake) and the hauntingly romantic ambient pop of a dark painted Stereolab (Nothing Goes Ahead), Des Roses sounds brave and excites with every repetitive listen! Keep your eyes open for this two girls/one boy act ‘cause i get this smell in the air that this is just the beginning!
