The French kings of electro-swing are back with a fourth album, "Chronologic", and are currently touring the American continent: they will be in Oakland on October 21st.

"We are very happy to come back to the United States and Canada, even if it's not a vacation", jokes Charles Delaporte, bassist of the group.

The last album of Caravan Palace is a musical UFO that gives pride of place to various musical genres, with influences such as soul, hip-hop, pop or rhythm and blues. "We're trying to get out of electro-swing, which can be very repetitive. We feel the need to explore something else with more pop music, while keeping our coherence with a mix of vintage and modern sounds ", explains Charles Delaporte.

It is in the country of Uncle Sam that Caravan Palace sells the most records, in front of England and France. A success that the bass player of the band has trouble explaining. "We're tackling swing, which is music born in the United States in the 1930s, maybe it's talking to Americans. And then the French electro artists always seem to have the rating here ". Playing in the United States has long been a dream for Caravan Palace members, whose musical influences are mostly Anglo-Saxon and American.
