I’m a French musician and songwriter from Montpellier, and I play new wave.
I started this solo project in October 2013 and my first EP ‘Weird Tales’ was released on cassette on June 6th – for my 21st birthday – by Young Cubs, an indie label from Austin, TX. I play all of the instruments on my records. It takes a lot of work, but it’s so rewarding to make it all from A to Z. It’s just straight from my little room to your ears! My main influences are Joy Division, The Velvet Underground, The Strokes – and many other bands beginning with “the” – and I’m also a fan of the aesthetic of 80s films, Tron, Blade Runner…
The first EP is mostly about the surreal world in which children grow up, and their fear and desire of getting older. It sounds like going indefinitely back and forward between the 80s and the present, between childhood and adulthood, over and over again.
I’m really excited about this cassette release, and happy to share it with you all! I hope you like it!
