Biography

A unique and hugely talented artist, Tellier’s identity can be found in the triangle between genius, eccentric and enigma. The son of a musician whose first inspiration came from Pink Floyds Atom Heart Mother, he released his first album in 2001 and his break-through single La Ritournelle in 2004 and in subsequent years has carved out a diverse and esoteric path, from working with Daft ...

BBC Review

The surprise here, is not that Sebastian Tellier has written an album about sex and love-making, but that it has taken him four albums to do it. While very much a contemporary of the big names of the '90s new wave of Parisian pop - Sexuality is produced by Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo of Daft Punk, while his records find a home in France on Air's Record Makers imprint - Tellier is a figure who owes as much to pop stars of a slightly older vintage. Take the opening Roche, a mellow synth-pop number through which Tellier swoons, coos, and come-hithers like a young Serge Gainsbourg.

Tellier's take on the classic French crooner is an update, rather than an echo, though. Sexuality is a prime example of the 21st Century's obsession with the thick vintage synthesisers and clicking drum machines of the '70s and early '80s, an almost fetishistic recreation of the warm, enveloping textures of progressive pop (and Tellier has more claim to it than most, if rumours he is the son of one of classic prog-rock greats Magma is to be believed).

Tellier is the only vocalist here, his earnest croon falling in line with the hissing electronics, French and English language love songs part submerged underneath velvety swathes of keyboard. He's not wholly alone, though: on Manty, female voices trill in a wordless chorus, one which Tellier loops through the entire track; meanwhile, on the slow, squelchy Pomme, a girl's voice pants in ecstasy in a knowing echo of Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin's orgasmic Je T'Aime Moi Non Plus. The sprawling Sexual Sportswear, meanwhile, provides a sort of mid-album interlude, a wholly instrumental synthesiser work-out that suggests a Jean-Michel Jarre style space-pop album is only a decision away. Will Sexuality see Tellier take his place in the mainstream alongside Daft Punk and Air? Probably not - his sound is just a little too languid for the pop marketplace, his songs a little too opaque. No, this is one for the connoisseurs, and one suspects Tellier is more than happy with that. --Louis Pattison

This man is a big sexy nipple teasing long slow love god. He knows how to use and choose a synth, and keeps the textures sparse and clear, but continuous, almost liquid. Everything is where it should be, and it's darkly lit, transporting and very effective. Like sitting in an old smokey cinema, watching a hallucinogenic 70s sci-fi movie. I love it.

After the huge success of 2005's "La Ritournelle" and the release of the acoustic "Sessions" the following year, to say Sebastien Tellier's next album was eagerly awaited would be an understatement. Now, to say it's a masterpiece would be another one.

Unlike previous releases, it seems the french artist has opted for a far poppier and lightweight approach on this "Sexuality" LP. Produced by half of Daft Punk Guy-Manuel De Homem-Christo, it bears eroticism and seduction overall its 50 minutes and creaks with potential hit singles. From marvellous opener "Roche", a tale about falling in love in the sun (ahem) to the closing "L'Amour Et La Violence", whose first two minutes would not have been out of place on "Sessions", it's a landmark record meant to soundtrack lovers' nights to the highest point. First single, the lengthy "Sexual Sportswear", provide an 'Air meets Giorgio Moroder' feel, while "Une Heure" or "Elle" are emotive numbers that makes your spine shiver with joy (yes it's that good).

All along, delicate production and soft electronics collide with a sharp songwriting and a skilled musicianship to an effect both striking and addictive.

The first truly great pop album of 2008, alongside Hot Chip's "Made In The Dark" (check the Amazon customer reviews, I could not write a better one).

UPDATE October 2008: I have to add that the Japanese edition of this CD features 3 worthy remixes; "Sexual Sportswear" (Sebastian Remix), "Divine" (Danger Remix) and, most of all, a radical reworking of "L'Amour Et La Violence" by German producer Boys Noize.

Love this album. A top offering from the man who wrote probably the most beautiful pop song ever, La Ritournelle.

It can be further enhanced by seeing him in one of his extraordinary live performances. Really, not to be missed. Hysterical.

The antithesis of any squeeky clean pop star & way, way more talented. The world needs more people like him.

I recently discovered Sebastian Tellier music but as a big fan of Daft Punk it was only a matter of time before I would get into this music. Sebastian work is much more chilled than that of Daft Punks and some of the tracks reminds me of Jean Michel Jarre music. The tracks on the album are varied but in my opinon Look and Roche stand out from the rest.
