Listen to the Story.

In Paris, both Starck and Jarre are considered celebrities by birth.

Jarre's father is French composer Jean Michel Jarre whose albums of electronica in the 70s and 80s became quite popular.

Starck is the daughter of modernist designer Philippe Starck who has crafted chairs with stiletto heels and orange juicers that seem to defy gravity.

There is a lot of 60s British folk and acoustic pop influences in the music of "The Two" : Donovan, Nick Drake and a bit of Vashti Bunyan.

Starck and Jarre are darlings in France, but they are hoping to find the same sort of love in the US.
