Je Suis France is an indie rock group formed in Athens, Georgia, in 1997. Their albums have been released by David Lowery’s Pitch-A-Tent Records, Elf Power’s Orange Twin Records, and Antenna Farm Records.
Back to the Basics of Love, released in November from the Ernest Jenning Record Co., is their seventh official full-length album. Despite that long history of experimentation, Back to the Basics of Love has all the energy and urgency of a debut from a band that’s 20 years younger. It’s a record that sounds like it could’ve come out in the 1990s, the 2000s, or the 2010s, but that couldn’t have existed at any point other than now.
