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.
