Fear of an Acoustic Planet

Sunkissed and free from angst, Tahiti 80 are a French pop group who’ve been making the world a better place for more than two decades. 2019 marks an anniversary that’s worth celebrating: the pioneering Normandy outfit brought out their first album Puzzle in 1999. Since then they’ve released another six studio albums, including last year’s ebullient The Sunsh!ne Beat Vol. 1, which saw them further explore sunshine pop and blue-eyed soul, laid out over energetic grooves.

The years have been kind, and Tahiti 80 are as evergreen now as they were when they emerged out of Rouen in the late 1990s. To prove it, they’re about to bring to the world a best of - although in T80-style - it’s a collection with a difference.

Behold then, Fear of an Acoustic Planet, a selection of their greatest moments reimagined. Regarding the choice of title, Xavier Boyer says: “ I love Public Enemy, when I was scratching my head for an album title I thought about what was the furthest away from our musical spectrum on this album, and Fear of a Black Planet came to mind. I just added the term acoustic; it made me smile”
