I absolutely love the music from "A Monster in Paris". I am having difficulty pinpointing the genre so I can find similar artists and music.

It seems like some kind of upbeat jazz/pop sound.

I'm not very good in genre naming, but it is close to what we call Chanson Française or Variété.

This is a typical style in France so I will suggest only songs in French (I don't have english suggestions in mind right now).

Check out those bands and related tracks and you will probably find something.

    I believe those French bands belong to a genre named "nouvelle scène française", best known in English as Nouvelle Chanson
