Victoire De Castellane ‎- Pas D’Hélices Aux Avions

sss
Pas D’Hélices Aux Avions is an EP released by Victoire De Castellane ‎on the label Carrere in 1987. This EP is chanson.

This is such a great chanson EP. The first track, Pas D’Hélices Aux Avions, has such a great 80s pop sound. Really cheesy but catchy melodies, dated drums, and great singing, all with heavy pop vibes. I really love this track~

The second track,  Ondes De Choc, takes the release in a somewhat different direction. Still obviously pop, but is really obviously a B-Side due to the obviously lower level of production. This track is still awesome though. It has a club beat, but much slower melodies. It sounds more emotional than the other track which is just full on fun. I really like the melodies, her singing, and the vibes/atmosphere on this track.

Les Moules Et Les Frites is an EP by Friandises ‎that was released on the label Philips in 1983. This release is French synth-pop.

This is a really awesome two track EP. The tracks are fun and full of great sounding sounds that I’ve only heard in underground 80s pop. There’s also a very obvious French vibe to this release, especially when the accordion comes in. Accordion + synth pop sounds like it might be an odd mix, but it sounds awesome. The melodies and singing is great too.

Femme Symphonie is a single by Christian Kubiak ‎that was self-released in 1987. This single is French pop. I also can only find one of the two tracks that are on this (yep one of those posts).

This is a pretty nice pop track. Its upbeat and has a fun vibe to it. The percussion is similar to drum n bass. The melodies are fun and good and the vocals are nice too. Also, he looks like the Shamwow guy.

Christelle – Brouillard Sur Londres

Brouillard Sur Londres is a single by Christelle that was released in 1985 on the label Slim Productions. This single is French pop.

This is a pretty nice little pop tune. Dated awesome melodies over very 80s sounded drums. Accompanied by Christelle’s singing which goes along perfectly with the melodies/vibe/tones. The melodies have a slightly serious feel to them, and the track doesn’t have a fun/happy sound to it, but still stays very poppy. Track uses both synths and guitars for the melody.
