Founded in 2010 by four high school students in Sens, Burgundy, Johnny Mafia has built over time a relentless reputation as a live band. And in two albums and nearly 250 concerts, has managed to impose itself at the top of a new French scene. After a second album recorded by Jim Diamond (The White Stripes, The Fleshtones, The Sonics) and widely acclaimed by the specialised press, they now turn to local producer Kris Banel, who is behind many excellent French punk rock records. The album was recorded in Warmaudio studio, near Lyon, in spring 2020. Composed over a shorter time period than their previous records, Sentimental gains coherence as well as intensity as a consequence. The band moves away from the garage rock that characterized their previous records to leave more room for major influences such as the Pixies. Under powerful walls of guitars, the band piles up furious tracks with indelible refrains, imbued with an astonishing pop sensibility. Sentimental shows the band knew exactly where it wanted to go, and crucially how to get there. It is a spontaneous, uncomplicated and hugely enjoyable indie rock album, a real instant classic.
