How did the band come to be?
“ I (Romeo, lead singer-guitarist) and Vince (drummer and back vocalist) started to play together when we were 14. It’s a very long story of love ahah! We’re originally from a city called Troyes in France. Then we met our bassist / back vocalist Rudy in Paris as well as our Keyboardist and back vocalist André.”
Do you have any releases coming up this year?
“We are releasing a new EP called “(Be)For Tomorrow”, release date planned on the 3rd of July on all digital platforms and you’ll be able to order a CD on our e-shop (will open at the end of June). We’re super excited to let you hear this new one guys! We had to postpone our full album “For Tomorrow” (it’s already finished but because the conditions were not met to defend it on stage we had to find a way to make our audience wait, and that’s why we are releasing the EP).”
What is something you want listeners to take away from your music?
“Everything they wanna take!! Maybe we want us to have one of our melodies in their head when they start the day! So they will think about us all day ahah!”
With everything that is going on in our world what is one cause or organization that you are passionate about?
“All the causes about our planet & environment. I think it’s a cause everyone should worry about.”
What is your writing process like?
“I don’t have a precise writing process when I create music. Most of the time, it comes to my mind out of nowhere. Days, and nights. I have a melody in my head or the instrumental parts, sometimes both. So I take my piano or my guitar and I start playing it. Inspiration is everywhere for me. In my feelings, in my observation of the world or
society, in the past, in my memories. Or just when I see something that inspires me at one moment. I usually start with a melody. Then I take an instrument (piano or guitar) and then the lyrics. But sometimes it’s the opposite as well ahah! “
To follow up with the last question, what inspires your sound?
“All the period from the 60’s & 70’s. The Beatles are my Bible (laughs)!! But also Led Zep’, Hendrix, Clapton, Pink Floyd… All the standards from this period, and later I’ve been listening to more recent bands like Muse, Placebo, Kings of Leon,
The Killers… On the other hand I did listen to a lot of Rhythm’N’Blues (Otis Redding, Percy Sledge…) and practiced a lot of classical music.”
Any tours coming up soon?
“We are trying to re-plan our cancelled tours in Europe, US and Central / Latin America. we’re finally going back on stage for the 1st time since the beginning of the Covid the 22nd of July in France.”
