“The story of EVA & MANU almost sounds too good to be true: a Fin and a French meet in a boston club, fall in love, decide to travel across Europe and discover that they also fit well musically. So their first record becomes a celebration of togetherness.”
Rolling Stone - Rollingstone


Best Fit first met Eva & Manu at another showcase festival – Eurosonic in the Netherlands – a few months back. The pair hooked up during their time studying music in Boston (at Berkley College) and describe themselves as a ‘travelling’ duo. They ran away together after two years of study, back to Manu’s homeland (France) and worked on farms while they gathered material for their debut album, which mixes folk and rock in a way that’s anything but backward looking. Their set at Kino Sõprus was truly magical. - The Line of Best Fit


Eva & Manu is a more recent and less notorious arrival, but no less international. The Fenno-French duo met while studying music in the US and wrote their debut album while touring Europe. - Music Finland

"The story of EVA & MANU almost sounds too good to be true: a Fin and a French meet in Boston, fall in love, decide to travel across Europe and discover that they also fit well musically. So their first record becomes a celebration of togetherness."- Rolling Stone, Germany

Fall 2010, they left Boston and started traveling in an old camper van all across Europe. Eva & Manu created a music blog :"Travel in Music" which quickly reached thousands of followers around the world. They filmed their entire trip and every week recorded a new song in a different location, filmed it and released it on their blog. The idea was simple : they wanted their audience to be traveling along the way with them. Going from one farm to another they composed a very intimate acoustic indie-pop record. Their first single "Feet in the water" is reminiscent of Florence & The Machine, it gives you goose bumps and summons up powerful images that will haunt and possess you.
In 2012 Eva & Manu´s debut was released by Warner Music in Finland, Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Norway and Sweden.

Following the release, Eva & Manu played full-house shows all across Europe including some of the worlds biggest music events: Eurosonic Festival, Reeperbahn Festival, By:larm Festival and many others. Mercedes-Benz took "Hold on" to their playlist and Rolling Stone Germany picked it up to their collection album in 2012. Spring 2013, Eva & Manu appeared  on one of the biggest german TV-channels ZDF with "Feet in the Water" and opened for Sophie Hunger and ZAZ in Germany. 

Eva & Manu just released their second album "Cinnamon Hearts" (Warner Music Finland)
▶ Spotify: http://spoti.fi/YZDOKd on 29/08/2014 which topped #5 on the national charts and #1 on iTunes for several weeks. In October 2014 the acclaimed Nordic Playlist chose "Cinnamon Hearts" as one of the "10 most unmissable Scandinavian albums". 

Their single "Cinnamon Hearts" has been one of the most hyped songs of the summer 2014 in Finland and their recent album release tour has been a huge success, selling out most venues. Music critics and the audience names Eva & Manu as the "fresh and uprising band from Helsinki".
