Berlin-based Ballet School is Irish Rosie Blair on vocals/guitar, Japanese-Brazilian Michel Collet on lead guitar and Louis McGuire on drums.
Blair and Collet met two years ago in Berlin when Blair heard Collet playing his guitar in the U-bahn. Sharing their love of the Cocteau-Twins, she immediately asked him to form a band. In 2012 they began collaborating with McGuire.
With a mélange of ’80s pop and R’N’B at the forefront of the band’s agenda, their debut single ‘Heartbeat Overdrive’ provides a meditative driving beat of pop at it’s best and showcases both Irish and Japanese influences.
