Honeyed images and poppy riffs got out attention with Klingande's "Jubel."
Formed in December of 2012, Klingande consists of childhood friends Cdric and Edgar, two 22-year-olds from Croix in northern France who formed the duo after being united by their love of electronic artists such as Klangkarussell, Bakermat and Nico Pusch.
Cdric studied music theory as a child, but later became immersed in electronic music as a teenager; initially a DJ, he soon also began to work on his own original productions. Edgar first started playing the piano at the age of sixteen and was so enamoured that he spent four years studying the instrument. The pair first met at school at the age of ten, but reconnected late in 2012 when Cdric returned from a spell in London and made fresh contact with his old friend.
Klingande have spent much of the year touring throughout Germany, Sweden, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Ireland, Austria, Romania and the Netherlands. Their new single to be released in mainland Europe is 'Punga, another track which features their distinctive house-meets-saxophone sound and also earned a huge online following.
