  • CHARLOTTE GAINSBOURG
A master of tours in both solo and (super)group formation, Miles Kane steps into the ring at Days Off to deliver the final Coup de Grace in his French tour. At the culmination of a triumphal tour, Charlotte Gainsbourg lingers in the limelight, with her characteristic finesse.

1/ Miles Kane
Born in Liverpool in 1986, Miles Kane began his musical career at age 17 as guitarist in the indie rock groups The Little Flames and The Rascals. He went on to form The Last Shadow Puppets with friend and Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner. Blending pop, rock, classical and Baroque music, their supergroup was an instant success with both British and international audiences. Meanwhile Miles Kane also continued his individual pursuits, launching his solo career in 2010. Staying true to his punk inspirations and offbeat style, he released his acclaimed first album Colour of the Trap in 2011 followed by Don’t Forget Who You Are in 2013. After several years out of the spotlight, spent focused on his compositions, Miles Kane burst back onto the scene in 2018 with his highly anticipated Coup de Grace: “This record for me is the most important record I’ve made to date. It’s been 5 years in the making; a lot of emotion and excitement has gone into [it]!

2/ Charlotte Gainsbourg
We are still under the charm of her fourth album Rest (2017), and the follow-up EP Take 2 (Dec. 2018) has only extended her state of grace. Since her adolescent début album Charlotte for Ever, closely managed by her father, she has come into her own with some of the finest music producers (Air, Beck, Connan Mockasin, etc.) and has crafted her distinct style with SebastiAn, the French artist and producer whose elegant electronic music melds perfectly with the fragile contours of her unmistakeable opalescent voice. With Rest, in a break from previous work, Charlotte Gainsbourg returns to the French language, with powerfully emotional lyrics—shedding her supposed reserve to reveal a more Gainsbourgian boldness than ever. In concert, surrounded by luminous scenography and a particularly effervescent backup band who support her with warmth and éclat, she navigates between pop majesty and stroboscopic electronic music, drawing from her entire repertoire, including the “Lemon Incest” and “Charlotte for Ever” of her younger self.
