Undo Records are to release a special compilation of lost South Of France technopop act VIENNA. Formed in 1984 under the name ACADEMIE, they comprised of vocalist Odile Arias, her brother Dominique and Thierry Martinez. Impressing with a demo that had reached Ariola Records, they went on to support French band INDOCHINE who had an international hit with 'L'Adventurier' in 1983. Eventually signing with RCA in 1986 and changing their name to VIENNA, their debut single was the sublime 'Say You Love Me (Tu As Jure?)'.

Influenced by KRAFTWERK and Synth Britannia acts such as DEPECHE MODE, OMD and GARY NUMAN, VIENNA sounded like a dreamy, less industrialised cousin of HARD CORPS who supported DEPECHE MODE during the 'Music For The Masses' tour. But the DM connections don't end there for Odile became Martin Gore's girlfriend during this period, having met at a DM show after they left RCA and signed to Mute France in 1987. She can be seen as part of the DM entourage in the D A Pennebaker documentary '101'.

Now in 2013, all of those singles plus B-sides like 'Viens Dans La Chambre' and many of the demos recorded by VIENNA between 1985 to 1990 (and unreleased in the vaults of Mute Records) are gathered together and given a chance to shine. As can be expected, the quality is variable from full studio masters to cassette recordings but several songs like the sparsely chirpy 'Rendez-vous Sur La Mer Noire' and the moodier 'Un Dernier Dimance Avant La Guerre' are wonderfully exquisite diamonds in the mine that have now been unearthed, Odile's exquisite allure providing much enjoyment to the synthesized soundtrack.
