Eux Autres, the Omaha-born, Portland-based duo, channels sixties French pop and gives it a unique sensibility. The brother/sister duo, Heather and Nicholas Larimer, share lead vocals with Heather on drums and Nicholas on guitar.
The Larimers' music favors melody, with compelling vocals in call and response. These vocal textures are underscored by lyrics that manage to be clever without being precious, treating subjects that range from Spanish imperialism to romantic angst, French politics to soccer.
Eux Autres' debut 7", was released in 2003, and their first full-length CD, Hell Is Eux Autres recorded by Jeff Stuart Saltzman and Janet Weiss (Sleater-Kinney/Quasi), is now available.
