The Cars Are The Stars are a seven member collective from France, six musicians and one video artist... I'm not sure what the video artist plays. They create what is being dubbed indie-tronica and seeing as I listen to almost exclusively indie music, but can't stomach most electronica, I thought I would give their song, "Helikopter", half-a-shot and a full listen.

Even though guitars are in the mix, the repeated female delivered vocal lines create a warmth that rises above the electronic elements and the guitar sounds. A very interesting song that prompts me to seek out more of The Cars are the Stars.
