MTV Iggy "We love it!’’

Avec Sans are Alice Fox and Jack St James, from Manchester and Trinidad respectively, now living in London, UK. They make dreamy electronic pop music.

Signed to U.S. label Beverly Martel, Avec Sans’ single releases have achieved national radio play and media acclaim and their debut album ‘Heartbreak Hi’ charted in the top 50 on iTunes.

Their tracks have had national radio play, including XFM playlisting and have been featured on U.S. TV and have had in-store retail outlet play across America and the UK.

They have also been taken into the hearts of many in the fashion industry and designed a shoe for London fashion brand Swear. Their music has been used on the catwalks of New York Fashion week. They were also named band of the year by Dolce and Gabbana, have been Track of the Day on Vogue.com and have been featured in Teen Vogue, Elle Magazine and DJ’d for the Milan launch of luxury brand Sandro.

Avec Sans started performing live in 2014 and quickly gained recognition for their energetic shows. Aiming to break down the walls of electronic laptop performances, Jack hacked his Novation launch pad to display a light show and uses three of them in tandem tilted towards the audience. He’s filmed performances using 19 launch pads simultaneously and has worked with Novation to demo and launch new products online.

Avec Sans supported Ladyhawke on her 2016 UK tour and have played alongside acts such as Little Boots, Capital Cities, Bright Light Bright Light and The Pet Shop Boys. They’ve played live for BBC Introducing and at events such as SXSW, Cannes Lions, Canadian Music Week, CMJ New York, The Great Escape, Kendal Calling, Bingley Music Live, Butlin’s Weekender (Electric Dreams for Vintage TV) and various other European events.

They have remixed artists such as Swiss Lips (Epic), Haerts (Columbia) receiving praise for these from the likes of DJ Sasha. Their remix of Young Summer’s ‘Severing Ties’ was featured on Bravo TV.

Avec Sans are currently touring and DJing internationally.
