AllMusic Review by

Luck & Accident was French band Kim Novak's first full-length album and their Talitres debut after self-releasing an eponymous EP. Produced by François Chevallier (Emilie Simon) and recorded by Markus Dravs (Arcade Fire, Björk) in late 2006 and released the following summer. Its sound reflects the influence of indie rock paragons the Strokes and Interpol, offering both the punchy ("Swallow," "Lost at Play"), the ruminative ("In the Mirror," "On My Back"), and the always abundantly melodic guitar-driven indie rock tunes.
