“An amazing concert. Experimentation. We are in an urban jungle. We are in a bar. We are on the roof of a building in London. We are on a street, and the music is with us. As long as there are voices like Sascha’s and instruments such as Laurent's, everything will be fine.”
NEW ALBUM COMING SOON!
After an exciting and intense recording at the Studio Amper in Clouange, France from July 3 to 5, the post production has started! We are close to the mastering ...
On our second album we have recorded a few tunes with our fellow musicians Jean Pascal Boffo - guitarist and our sound engineer - and Murat Oztürk on piano, both from France.
The release is planned for spring 2019, though we might make it possible to make you listen to some work sometimes before.
