Etonnamment mature, divinement anglo-saxon, brouillant les cartes, les influences (et les confluences), ...KIM NOVAK normand est un quatuor originaire de Caen, "sueurs froides"....

Enregistré en décembre 2006 au Studio Factory proche de Caen, lieu idéal où l'on modèle pâte et compositions (le studio jouxte une usine de pâte à modeler), LUCK & ACCIDENT premier album, soit un véritable condensé de l'univers du groupe : depuis les fantômes de Joy Division ou de Cure, jusqu'au vibrant hommage au Velvet Underground ('In The Mirror'), depuis Radiohead vers les chaudes et rondes compositions qu'on jurerait issues d'un album illégitime de The National (aucune influence revendiquée cependant ici), Kim Novak creuse un sillon qui lui est propre,…un sillon ouvert et vertigineux.

From France, the four members of KIM NOVAK have played together since two years.
Haunted by diversified influences such as indie (from Interpol to the Tindersticks, from Radiohead to the Talking Heads), soul music and classic rock, KIM NOVAK not only sounds energically rock but also untypically ethereal. Their music is not driven by any one instrument and each song has it own sound and style which produce a melodic, groovy and electric setlist.
Through positive blog reviews like the New York's blog " Ear Farm " and their opening night off show of the French Festival " La Route du Rock " in St Malo last year, the band manage to increase their notoriety and spread their to everyone's ears, in France wich allowed them to reach the " Printemps de Bourges " short listing in October 2005.
The following year, Kim Novak signed with Talitres records and under the tutelage of the french producer François Chevallier with the contribution of Markus Dravs (who had worked previously with Brian Eno, Björk or more recently Arcade Fire) recorded their debut album 'Luck & Accident' in december 2006.
