Mermonte was formed in 2010 in Rennes, France. This group of 10 wonderful musicians all have a past in various bands, combining different elements such as jazz, math-rock, pop and post-rock. Band-leader Ghislain Fracapane recorded the album ‘Mermonte’ in 2010 with his group, and the sound is orchestral yet very intimate. Some may refer to the music as an instrumental version of Sufjan Stevens work, or a poppy version of Tortoise. Either way, it’s very unique, and will definitely get everyone in the mood for spring 2012!
