Dance The Way I Feel

Album: The Golden Year (2009)
  • Ou Est Le Swimming Pool are a synth-pop trio hailing from Camden in north London. Charles Haddon, Joe Hutchinson and Caan Capan formed the group in 2008. This is their debut single, which was a hit in Australia peaking at #16 on the ARIA singles chart.
  • The band's vocalist, Charles Haddon, told CMU about the trio's songwriting process. "The tracks start in a few different ways. One way is to start with the drum pattern and see what synth lines or chords take your fancy. Then just play around with some vocals/lyrics until it works. Another way is to really go back to basics and write it on the piano. That's where most of the more emotional songs come from."
  • On August 20, 2010, Haddon committed suicide after a performance at Pukkelpop, Belgium. He jumped from a telecommunications mast in the backstage artists' parking area.
