Xavier Michel - Aliose
Aliose are a light-hearted, atmospheric and melodic pop duo comprising two singer-songwriters, Alizé Oswald and Xavier Michel. They already have three self-released albums to their name and more than 400 concerts which have taken them as far as China, Japan, England, West Asia, Eastern Europe, South and North America, etc. The duo released their first international album "Comme on respire" in 2017 (Warner Music), nominated to the prestigious Victoires de la Musique in France in 2018. Olympia, Pleyel, Trianon, Paleo Festival, Auditorium Stravinski, Aliose has played in famous concert halls and festivals, and has received lots awards in France, Switzerland and Romania.
"Comme on respire" combines the simplicity of epic pop songs - which are driven by killer melodies - with the sophistication of more demanding works. The songs are littered with sonic jewels which reveal themselves gradually and breathe life into their subtle writing: Aliose address profound ideas with a poetic and elliptical touch, like pixels coming together to form one single image. Alizé and Xavier's voices blend with sweetness, sensuality and virtuosity in perfect harmony, amplified by the elegant production of the great Pierre Jaconelli (Benjamin Biolay, Rose, Calogero, Zazie, Johnny Hallyday, etc.). The gentle yet dark ambience is full of melancholy, irony and hope. The Swiss secrecy surrounding Aliose is finally going to be lifted.
