Originally from Paris, Juliette Davis and Joachim Polack met as teenagers and studied musicology at university together, where they fell in love with the bossa nova music of Brazil in the 1960s. Polack relocated to Florida for more school, and Davis soon followed. There, in the vibrant artist community of Gainesville, they began recording and performing pop songs inspired by their early, fantasy-like visions of The Sunshine State. The resulting album, as Pearl & The Oysters, is a charming and carefree collection which brings to mind the brightest sides of Stereolab and Broadcast.
