Popscene: Hyphen Hyphen
Wed 12/4/19 @ 8:00 PM PT
Buoyed by the powerhouse vocals of lead singer Santa, the French group Hyphen Hyphen make electro-pop inspired by the likes of Phoenix and Metronomy on albums including 2015’s Times. Singer/multi-instrumentalist Santa (Samanta Cotta), bassist/vocalist Line (Laura Christin), multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Adam (Romain Adamo), and drummer Zaccharie formed Hyphen Hyphen in 2009 as students at the Conservatory in Nice, France. Cotta, the French-American daughter of a singer, became friends with Adamo when they were children, and the pair met Christin and Zaccharie while they were all in high school.
