Building on the success of their debut EP Volumes, Jean-Louise and Alex Parker present their ethereal brainchild ACADEMIE. The Johannesburg-based wife and husband duo, known for their performances with the bands Dear Reader (Jean-Louise) and ISO (Alex), take their audience on a sensitive but exciting journey with a live show that never ceases to amaze. Academie have already attracted a loyal following, with performances at various high profile festivals, including a main stage slot at Oppikoppi 2017.
Jean-Louise transports listeners with her haunting vocals and vocoder effects while Alex, on drums and synthesizers, delivers a meditative electronic back-beat. Jean-Louise on viola and electric guitar contributes to a sombre tone cut through with occasional displaced abstract infusions from the sax. Exciting rhythmic and melodic variations lend this stylistically eclectic band an anthemic quality.
The duo work from their home in Johannesburg which doubles as a creative atelier for the writing, recording and production of their music. Alex and Jean-Louise are well-known musicians on the South African music scene and are seasoned session musicians. They regularly perform live in South African venues and have both toured Europe showcasing their special brand of mystic pop.
