April March- Mingnonette

April March’s voice gives an aire of child-like innocence, which directly contrasts with the often times racy lyrics in many of the songs in her 1996 album “April in Paris”, which was mostly covers of 1960’s standards of french pop. “Chick Habit” is probably her most notable song due to it’s inclusion on the soundtrack to the movie “Death Proof”. With a style and sound directly influenced by young french pop artists such as Françoise Hardy, France Gall, Dalida, and Mina, it’s no surprise that she would be one of the few contemporary artists featured in a Tarintino film.

Another notable piece from April...

Something you may recognize... April didn't translate this, but wrote her own english lyrics, although she did also record the french version too...

  1. Nice choice, Nic! I love me some April March. Ever heard the album she recorded with the Makers? I believe it's called simply "April March Sings Along With the Makers." Blistering 60s garage-punk stuff.
