Reactions to "Bonjour" the debut album by Francis Macdonald & Harry Pye
"A thoughtful collaboration with Macdonald providing the elegant soundtrack to Pye's lyrics on art appreciation, nostalgic reminisces and the simple pleasures." Fiona Shepherd, The Scotsman Newspaper.
“Punky vignettes, fusing spoken word with classic pop, easy listening and more” - Robin Murray (CLASH magazine)
“Old fashioned, poignant, likeable and offbeat. Macdonald is a dab hand with sweet melodic easy-listening indie numbers, while Pye contributes spoken word anecdotes that are perfectly written, clumsily delivered and gripping” – Thomas H. Green (The Arts Desk)
Sympathy For Jean-Luc Godard is “shimmering and radiating feel good vibes” Mark Barton (God Is In The TV website)
“Delightful stuff.” Roland Monger (Listen with Monger website)
"Odd but good" **** (Jenny Bulley Mojo Magazine)
“I Feel Like a Record That’s Scratched is pure catchy power pop... a work of art.” Calum Craig (Is This Music? Website)
“Wonderfully quirky” – Flux magazine
“The results of their collaboration will make you want to smile” – Carlos Benito (El Correo website).
Bonjour the art pop album that everyone is talking about is available on i-tunes, Spotify, Amazon, Rough Trade in London, Monorail Music in Glasgow and all good record shops in UK/Europe. For signed copies visit: https://bonjour.tmstor.es/
