French critics panned Houndmouth
Houndmouth star Matt Myers has said the band's London shows were great - but they didn't go down quite so well in France.
The country rock band from Louisville, Kentucky and New Albany, Indiana played in the UK earlier this year.
Matt said: "London is the best place to play, apart from our hometown. A lot of people in London hadn't heard of us, but we went on and played and people seemed to love it.
"The shows in France didn't go very well, I don't know what it was. I read one review that said we had a really weird stage presence. You win some, you lose some, I guess."
The band, also consisting of Katie Toupin, Zak Appleby and Shane Cody, released their debut album From The Hills Below The City in June.
