“We’re living in troubled times marked by renewed violence, social regression and the rise of extremism,” says the French duo of Victor Solf and Simon Carpentier. “As artists, we wanted to put across a positive message, encouraging people to think differently and accept their own and others’ uniqueness.”
HER – the sexy and soulful French duo of Victor Solf and Simon Carpentier – perform live last summer The Great Escape Festival in Brighton.

“We are focussing on Her Tape No.1. It begins by talking about the dreaming, the lust for a woman, and that’s our track ‘Quite Like’. Then you have the love encounter with ‘Five Minutes’,” reveals Her’s Victor Solf, as co-founder and fellow band leader Simon Carpentier nods in agreement. “Then you have the experience of missing someone in ‘Her’, and finally you have the wedding in ‘Union’.”
This love story EP has won a lot of hearts in France since the Rennes-based band released it on vinyl through a French indie last month. However, their first ever digital release was ‘Quite Like’ in April. Although the full EP isn’t out digitally yet, Soundcloud streams have hit over a quarter of a million across their two releases, and plays have largely come from the UK and the US.
