Described as "something dreamy, not very real, but in the same time very strong and powerful," Parisian Electro Swing and Gypsy Jazz group Caravan Palace is set to showcase their third album
In their music, they often take influences from darker, more raw electronic styles and even mix in a few zig-zagged samples, vocoders or scatting to add to the overall effect. It is the combination of these different elements that makes their music so unique and interesting, and one of the main reasons they have received so much critical praise and fan love.
Their lyrical style is also very distinct, and they are known for their use of symbolism and evocative imagery throughout their work. This includes the song “Wonderland” which features a creepy, childish voice telling you to “Just imagine a trip to a wonderful land of candy and jam and ice cream.”
The lyrics of this song are quite a bit different from those of other songs by Caravan Palace, and they are not all that easy to understand. This is because they are written in French, and the translations are a little difficult to follow.
The song starts with a woman who sways her body to the music but is reluctant to dance. She is asked to do so by the singer who tells her that the party will liven up once she does so. This song is a great example of the way the band has managed to combine their different musical influences into something that is both fun and memorable, and is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
