Bands like Tahiti 80, who craft beautiful pop gems, are rare to find everywhere else but France. There’s something about the weather, the culture, or the wine that provides fertile ground for well-crafted music. Having met at the University of Rouen in the mid 1990’s, the band started out as a duo that soon evolved into a four piece, releasing their first album, Puzzle, in 1999. The band has continued on touring and making music. Their latest, Activity Center, is set to be released on November 24.
