Saigon Blue Rain | Cold Wave / France
Saigon Blue Rain was formed in September 2012 by Ophelia and Franck. Their first eponymous EP, released in 2013 has been critically acclaimed. Then, they released three albums between 2012 and 2019 which gave them the opportunity to perform in famous festivals of the gothic scene such as Wave Gotik Treffen, NCN festival, Eine Nacht Im Bergwerk or Tomorrows Ghosts Festival in Whitby and to support on their 2016 german tour, the Swiss band The Beauty Of Gemina.
This duo combines the french roots with the typical wavey sounds that reminds of the classical new-wave such asnew-wave such as The Cure, And Also The Trees and Cocteau Twins, melted with shoegaze and dreampop influences and so, they form a sound image that you won’t hear everyday.
In May 2020 their new EP, Songs For The Boys, has been released.
