"“Night Sketches” is the follow-up to French pop duet Papooz’s first album “Green Juice”. The album spawned single release ‘Ann Wants To Dance’ (alongside a video directed by French artist & musician SoKo), which has since clocked over 12 million streams online and counting. After selling out both Moth Club & The Sebright Arms, Papooz headlined Scala in London in December 2018.

Produced by Adrien Durand of Bon Voyage Organisation, Night Sketches finds Papooz perfecting their gift for wonky, exotic pop balanced with surreal, character-driven lyricism. “We had this romantic idea of capturing the essence of night life: its stories, its suspicious characters, its highs & lows and put them into pop songs.” Whilst Night Sketches continues to keep Papooz’ tongue firmly in cheek, there’s real precision at play in Armand Cottin and Ulysse Penicaut’s assimilation of soft rock, jazz and Brazilian music, leavened with an unmistakably British sense of humour (those lyrics sung in English are not by chance).
