about

TR023 - Tiny Room Records 2017

BIO
Garciaphone is the brainchild of Olivier Perez. Operating from his home in Clermont-Ferrand (a medium sized French town in a volcanic area), he has made beautiful songs for more than ten years now. Sometimes he acts alone, sometimes with a band (like on Constancia, released in 2013). For the new album Dreameater, he chose another setting: piano based, minimal indie folk. You can hear echoes from late 90s bedroom pop (like Grandaddy, Sparklehorse or Elliott Smith), but also the dreamy influence of temporary bands like Ultimate Painting and Chris Cohen.
