Our first contact with Bleu Toucan (Léo and Emmanuel), came via a Soundcloud message, when they still called themselves “Renart”.
We were charmed by the nature and atmosphere of their projects. After numerous email exchanges we solidified our collaboration and the group’s name as it exists now: Bleu Toucan.
A dreamy and airy name to match the dreamy and airy nature evoked by their music. Amongst the demos they sent, there was one in particular that grabbed our attention (then titled Charlemagne). It was reworked and eventually retitled Hanoï Café.
For the creation of their Origami EP, we called in Nicolas Lockhart to add a new dynamic to Bleu Toucan’s production.
The production of the music video for Hanoï Café (the first from Profil de Face), was made in collaboration with Grama,
a French agency made up of three young creatives.
For the EP’s artwork, we decided that one japanese inspired illustration would be the best option for depicting the enchanting tracks within the release.
Five years later, their tracks continue to radiate, with Hanoï Café having close to 25 million total streams.
