Berlin Festival 2011 » Housse de Racket

Line Up 2011


Housse de Racket is comprised of two French boys, Pierre and Victor. Their debut album, Forty Love, a concept album about two tennis superstars hopelessly in love, which boasts catchy indie tunes en francaise, was released in 2009. Housse de Racket used to share an affinity for epic chord progression and tennis-themed stage outfits, which turned their epicness more into a quirkiness of the nerdy kind. With their new album, Alesia, coming out in August, the boys, however, matured and turned toward synth sounds in 80s guise.  Housse de Racket’s heavy touring schedule so far included dates with Phoenix, Friendly Fires, Jamie Lidell, and Sébastian Tellier.
