The Soap Opera 'Ready to Hatch' debut album, and ample play are extremely happy to have them.

Always the different kids of Western France, comprising of members of Sudden Death of Stars and the Spadassins, they consist of a cape crusading poet, a secondhand bookseller, a bespectacled engineer and a level-headed drummer.

The result is great indie pop reminiscent of Arthur Lee's Love of the 1960s and the C86 sound of the 80s, with touches of the Brazilian Tropical in places.

The band have known each other as friends for years, hanging out at the same gigs for years and dealing with each other’s eccentricities. This album is like listening to a young Orange Juice, quaint, poetic, slightly sad, yet moving forward and uplifting. Here is a group who aren’t afraid to make hip shaking pop songs either.

“Those dreamily strummed guitars and floppy-fringed, 80s indie-boy vocals will completely steal your heart” Record Collector 4/5

“Bittersweet jangle impossible to resist” Shindig Magazine

“Twee, adorable, impeccable” Libération Newspaper

“Highly addictive indie pop masterpiece…You will hear whispers of Aztec Camera, C86 and Popanova” Sheila Take a Bow
