The Shoes are a French electro-rock duo originally from Reims created in 2007. It consists of Guillaume Brière and Benjamin Lebeau, who are both songwriters and producers. Before creating the concurrent group in 2007, Benjamin and Guillaume were the two members of The Film, a rock band that formed in Bordeaux in 2005. Guillaume Brière also formed the duo G. Vump along with Brodinski from Reims.[1][2]


On March 7, 2011, the band released their first album Crack My Bones, on the independent French label Green United Music. The album includes ten original tracks, including nine in collaboration with French and international artists such as Esser, Wave Machines, Primary 1, Anthonin Ternant (from The Bewitched Hands) and Cock'n'Bullkid.

At the same year, several of the songs on the album also resulted in the making of video clips: Cover Your Eyes' '(directed by We are from LA),' 'Wastin' Time (directed by Yoann Lemoine) and Stay the Same (directed by Daniel Wolfe). The Shoes performed at La Cigale during a sold-out concert on 9. They were then among the ten finalists of the Constantin Prize in 2011 and won the 'Innovation Award' at the UK Music Video Awards 2011 with the clip of Cover Your Eyes . The album Crack My Bones was placed in ninth place of the ranking of the "100 best albums of the year 2011" by the magazine Les Inrockuptibles .[3]
