Lescop

With a chiaroscuro voice, Lescop radiates his pop adventure in a cinematic off-screen where his obsessions such as the complexity of human relationships, love, 1960s cinema and punk meet his heroes: David Bowie, Yukio Mishima, Marlene Dietrich, Jean-Pierre Melville, Jesse Owens…

Former singer of the french band Asyl, Lescop developed his own universe in London alongside John & Jehn. In autumn 2011, the magnetic radicalness of ‘La Forêt’ is a revelation and appears on the front of the French scene.

In a spell full of familiarity, Lescop mixes his music with his eclectic influences, illuminated by his captivating poetry. His first self-titled album gave him the title of ambassador of a new French pop and radical wave. After touring in France and UK Lescop made an aerial sequel to his first compositions with his second album ‘Echo’ in 2016.

Pop Noire is an independent record label based in Paris, founded in 2011 by artists duo Johnny Hostile and Jehnny Beth, and artistic director Antoine Carlier with the desire to develop bespoke projects.
It all started in London with a punk and DIY philosophy as the duo John & Jehn was composing and recording in the basement of their home, while the back room was transformed into a makeshift office, stocked to the brim with records.

Pop Noire quickly got noticed and established its uncompromising reputation on an international scale with Lescop’s lunar and captivating ‘La Forêt’ or Savages’ burning ‘Shut up’.
The projects mainly build around Johnny Hostile and Jehnny Beth, but the house also opens to other artists as the New-Zealand duo A Dead Forest Index.
In 2017, Pop Noire joined forces with production company Walter Films founder, Xavier Arias. The label explores new aesthetics such as electronic and experimental music, with the signature of French young composer Cirrial and the release of Johnny Hostile’s ambient debut album.

Pop Noire is an artists’ house which produces and develops projects in line with its identity: independent, radical and exploratory.
