8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 18 January 2012
Francois & The Atlas Mountains are the first French act to be signed to Domino which begs the question - why has it taken them so long to branch out? I mean, France is only over there. Anyway, after a superb debut on Fence and a string of live dates that include support slots with King Creosote & Jon Hopkins and Camera Obscura the group return with their sophomore effort 'E Volo Love'. Influenced primarily by African and Middle Eastern rhythms as well as the plethora of indie-rock groups eternally doing the rounds they make music not all that dissimilar to their London based counterparts. 'E Volo Love' is jam-packed with lush pop songs that are cleverly augmented with tasteful rhythmic shifts and super subtle use of instrumentation to support, as opposed to over complicate, what are essentially simple pop songs. A very tasteful affair indeed.
