Indochine – tes yeux noirs
From the album “3” (1986, BMI Ariola)
Yes… That’s a genre I like too. I speak French and German fluently, and when I was a teenager, it was easier to listen to lyrics I understood. I admit I had no idea what Indochine was singing about, I understood the words, but not their meaning. Indochine was political; they broke stereotypes and taboos; they sang about sex and homosexuality, about love and life, depression and death…
But, as it is so often, this band is not for everyone. They moved from the new wave genre to something rock-ier. My husband doesn’t like Indochine because of the way Nicolas Sirkis sings. Lots of ooohoos, ihiiis, and ahaaas.
Quite an interesting band some interesting history to dive in.
Enjoy your weekend.
