As Nialler9 has quite rightly pointed out, there are two things that strike you straight away about Ou Est Le Swimming Pool:
1. Their name is slightly genius.
2. They look like morons.
Thanfully, the deal-breaker for the band is their rather excellent music, which occupies a point on the musical spectrum somewhere between Friendly Fires and Pet Shop Boys. New single 'Dance The Way I Feel' is relentlessly catchy and I wouldn't be at all surpirsed if we find ourselves shimmying to this on Dublin dancefloors over the next few months:
Ou Est Le Swimming Pool support La Roux next month at The Academy. Sold out. Raging.
