Joon Moon | A new album and an exclusive playlist!
Joon Moon were formed in the Montmartre quarter of Paris in 2014, and behind the mysterious name is the meeting between the voice of American artist Krystle Warren and the music of talented composer Julien Decoret, who has also worked as a producer for Acoustic Resistance, La Boetie and Florent Marchet and has toured the world with Nouvelle Vague. Having released a first EP, Chess, in 2015 followed by the album Moonshine Corner in 2017, and receiving support from international radio (KCRW, BBC2/6, FIP, France Inter, Fluxradio and Couleur 3), the group has also played legendary American festival SXSW.
Now in 2021, Joon Moon – who have been streamed over 10 million times around the world – are finally back and ready to thrill their fans again. Julien Decoret is still at the controls, but this time accompanied by singer Liv Warfield, ex-protégé of Prince and member of the NPG (New Power Generation). Together they dig deep into the grooves of classic soul, aided by vintage instruments like the Cristal Baschet, a 1950s Galanti vibraphonette, a 1968 Höfner violin bass, a 60s electric piano and 70s analogue synths.
Joon Moon have released their new album Chrysalis, the perfect occasion for them to put together an exclusive playlist for What The France with tracks from Marc Collin & Chrysta Bell, Feu ! Chatterton, Marie S’Infiltre, Anne Sylvestre, Dinos & Nekfeu, Yves Simon, Acoustic Resistance, Babx, Archie Shepp, La Femme, Frànçois & The Atlas Mountains, Julia Jean-Baptiste, Gaël Faye, Bonga & Camélia Jordana, Bertrand Belin, Kalash Criminel & Nekfeu, Prudence and Mathieu Boogaerts.
