Ou Est Le Swimming Pool :: released October 05 2010
The long awaited debut album from Ou Est Le Swimming Pool is finally here!
After a year of incredible success and unbelievable tragedy, The Golden Year highlights the phenomenal three-piece with a contemporary take on indie-flavoured, synth-laden dance. This collection of songs transcends genres and will change perceptions of electronic music.
Before his passing, lead-singer of the band Charlie Haddon said of the album “It’s quite up tempo. It’s our first album so we thought if we could ever get away with making a party album, we could do it with this one.”
The Golden Year features the incredible ARIA Singles Chart Top 20 ‘Dance The Way I Feel’ – the debut single that shot the band into the limelight, achieving Gold status here in Australia. Following the phenomenal success of the first, second single ‘Jackson’s Last Stand’ was recently the #2 Most Added track to Australian radio, proving an instant hit with both alternative and commercial radio alike.
With strong influences by electronic pioneers The Petshop Boys and hip-hop illuminati The Beastie Boys, Ou Est Le Swimming Pool’s unique production and sound infiltrates every track on The Golden Year.
This is definitely one of the albums of the year!
