The muses of La Musa: Suki Waterhouse

Suki Waterhouse catalogs the most intimate, formative, and significant moments of her life through songs. You might recognize her name or her work as singer, songwriter, and actress, but you’ll really get to know the multi-faceted artist through her music. Growing up in London, Suki gravitated towards music’s magnetic pull and always saw the medium as a way of expressing creativity and telling stories. Suki has drawn comparisons to the Paisley Underground sound of Mazzy Star and to the 60s influenced girl group reimagining of bands like Stockholm’s The Concretes and Glasgow’s Camera Obscura.

Suki Waterhouse has shared a new track, ‘Nostalgia’. The first new material since April’s debut album ‘I Can’t Let Go’, the track was co-written and produced by John Mark Nelson.

Divus Julius presents: Frànçois & The Atlas Mountains

François Marry, the singer, songwriter and leader of Frànçois & the Atlas Mountains, likes travelling and so does his music. A lot of different influences can be heard in the songs that he has been creating since the early 2000s: the French ‘chanson’ tradition, African rhythms, oriental spices, sophisticated pop, avant-garde experimentations and funky grooves.

Born and raised in Saintes, on the West coast of France, François moved to Bristol in 2003 and stayed there for six years. While he was living in England, he started releasing his own music and became a touring member of Camera Obscura. He soon decided to form Frànçois & The Atlas Mountains and the band released their first album in 2006.

“Coucou” is the first new release from Frànçois & The Atlas Mountains since their 2017 album Solide Mirage.  Banane Bleue album will be released 26 February 2021.
