Paris band Fortune is releasing both an EP entitled "Gimme" and an album, "Staring at the Ice Melt", on March 23. The quartet are comprised of musicians with backgrounds from several other bands like The Yolks, The Big Knife, Abstrackt Keal Agram, Y Front and Rodolphe Burger's Meteor Band.

Labeled post-punk you can hear traces from the usual new wave and synthpop bands. But the guys also cite influences from 60s pop rock bands like The Zombies and The Troggs of Love via disco and Michael Jackson to modern bands like Granddaddy, Dopplereffekt, Lo-Fi-Fnk and Vampire Weekend.
