French Teen Idol is an instrumental solo-project run by the Roman artist Andrea Di Carlo, offering layers of strings and piano melodies, pseudo-glitch drum beats, wanna-be post-rock crescendos and weird vocal samples.
Lovers of Sigur Rós, M83, God Is An Astronaut and The Album Leaf may appreciate FTI's musical proposal.
On May 29, 2005, "French Teen Idol"'s self-titled debut album has been released by the Canadian netlabel Nishi, soon becoming the catalogue's most downloaded release. On October 2005, the song Shouting can have different meanings has appeared on Losing Today's compilation (Italian version).
"Enlightened False Consciousness", French Teen Idol's second full length album, has been released on April 5, 2007 by the post-rock netlabel Lost Children. On September 7, 2007, a limited cd edition (500 copies) of Enlightened False Consciousness has been released.
June 1st, 2009 is the release date of "El Siete Es La Luz", the third album by Andrea Di Carlo. Slightly more guitar-oriented, the 8 songs confirm FTI's proposal and invite you to a unique musical journey.
