"These guys are the sexiest Parisians in the French capital. They deal in beautiful ascendant, lustful alt.pop. Unsurprisingly for such a pair of sexy, talented bastards, they couldn't resist each other and so now they're the coolest touring couple in town." NME – 11/07
‘Bloody Marvellous’- Art Rocker
John and Jehn are a French duo who moved from their hometowns to London at the back end of 2006. It is impossible to talk about them without mentioning that they are a couple and very much in love.
It’s this dynamic that is fundamental to their self-titled debut album, John and Jehn: from the evident passion in the songwriting, performance and delivery, through to the physical presentation of the album being split into two halves – ‘Side John’ and ‘Side Jehn’.
Influenced by Serge Gainsbourg, The Velvet Underground, Gang of Four, Joy Division, and Johnny Cash, John and Jehn’s music is a collection of sonic experiments, carried by dark humour on razor-sharp pop melodies.
The subtle dynamics in their songwriting and the balance between chaos and beauty: the understanding of light and shade ensures the band’s first LP stands out from the crowd; the mastery of heartbreaking melodies juxtaposed with drones and white noise, the sense of space in the mix.
