2012 BIOGRAPHY

The Easton Ellises are Alex D and Simon Roy, best friends since their schooldays. They met back when Simon was studying music and Alex visual arts. They have since been making music together for the past fifteen years, playing with many different bands going from psychedelic music to punk-rock, experimental to progressive house.

In 1999 they formed a band called Stereomovers , which took them on a long musical journey. Between 2000 and 2005, they were part of Montréal’s underground electronic scene playing clubs, afterhours, and raves. Their music took them abroad playing in important music festivals and parties in the United States, Europe and Asia. The Stereomovers Music have been heard on European and Asian FM radio stations and countless internet podcasts from around the world. In 2001 the duet released its first twelve inch record with Technogold with Universal Music-Germany and then later a dozen more with respected electronic music labels from both sides of the Atlantic. Their music has also been featured on a number of internationally renowned DJ compilations (Global Underground, Renaissance, Yoshitoshi, etc.).

From 2005 to 2010, most of Alex and Simon’s time was spent working in studio, with renowned producer Pierre Bazinet, learning and perfecting the art of song writing and music production.

In September of 2010, Alex and Simon put the Stereomovers in a golden box on the top shelf of their libraries and started a new project called The Easton Ellises.

The American novelist Bret Easton Ellis inspires the name. The music is a combination of rock and electronic music. Pumping musical energy comes from their underground electronic music experience, blended with the touch of Rock mastered through the studio years.

They find their influence in bands like The Presets, Cut Copy, Rinoçérôse, Kasabian, Midnight Juggernauts, Phoenix, Datarock to name a few. Some synths, hard and soft, some guitars, a pearlescent drumkit, an SM58 and lots of red wine have been the main ingredients for the new project.
