EUROPEAN TOUR IN DECEMBER
LONDON’S KOKO ON TUESDAY 11TH DECEMBER
Charlotte Gainsbourg has announced a European tour in December, which will include a show at London’s Koko on Tuesday 11th December. It will be Charlotte’s first London show since her sold-out Village Underground performance, which drew enthusiastic critical praise across the board, with The Guardian and The Independent both bestowing 5 star reviews. “With a whisper of a voice, Serge’s daughter channels her father’s lascivious magnetism into a mesmerising, euphoric show,” reflected the former. The latter noted, “it’s a beautiful, honest performance, and maybe a little cathartic too; an irresistible flicker emerging from much darkness”. Over the summer, Charlotte has also performed at festivals around the world, including Primavera Sound, Field Day, Roskilde, Fyf, Øya and La Route Du Rock.
Tickets for the London show go on sale on Friday 7th September at 10AM.

The tour follows the release of her critically acclaimed album ‘Rest‘ at the end of last year. Produced by SebastiAn (Frank Ocean, Kavinsky) and mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Adele, Lorde, David Bowie), ‘Rest’ is Gainsbourg’s fourth studio album and her first in seven years. The album featured in Pitchfork’s Best New Music poll and was described as “gorgeous and assured” by NPR, while New York Times observed “Rest is an album that comes directly from her heart.” The eleven songs on ‘Rest’ are nothing if not sure-footed, proffering a compelling fusion of gleaming, string-emblazoned modern electro-pop and cinematically textured avant-chanson—their magical music box melodies kissed by bruised, introspective, occasionally disquieting lyrics.
