Juveniles, Bachar Mar Khalife

It only took a few months, a stellar EP, and a handful of big tracks – 'We Are Young', 'Hard Working Girl' – to propel Juveniles to the forefront of the French post-punk scene. Ploughing a course between The Smiths and Talking Heads, they've have been going from strength to strength, a trajectory culminating in their barnstorming Summer 2013 single 'Fantasy'. They'll be playing alongside Bachar Mar Khalife at the Espace Gérard Philipe on Dec 14, as part of the Les Aventuriers festival.
