Biography

Jordan hails from Paris, France. « French weirdos with no bass » would be a fast sum up...The band appears as a trio (guitar/drums/keyboards) and cultivates its outsider character. Imagine three boys born in a small french city in the 1980's, raised in the 1990's culture that melt joyously european post punk, anything noisy born in America anf french no-wave and art rock heritage. That mix can't be separated from a certain french touch you can feel in the vocals deliberately sung in a cute broken english. The lyrics, pretty ironic, make references to a various range of sources (from Melville's Whale to Defoe's Pirates, Dennis Wilson tragic destiny, mexican legends, Lavey's parties or diy voodoo...).
It sounds lo-fi, naive, sometimes melancolic and might be a surprise in the indie scene. Now grown up as a live band travelling everywhere, either by car, bus, plane or train (200 shows in 15 different countries). They are now preparing the next tours in June in Eastern Europe, and in October in the US again and surely more.

Discography

Our first album was recorded and produced in 2007 by Jay Pelliccci (Deerhoof, Erase Errata,...) who is the drummer of 31Knots, another band we love. We have recorded our first EP in Montreal, Canada, in 2006, with Howard Bilerman who worked with Godspeed You Black Emperor or Arcade Fire, and Brian Paulson (Slint, Beck, Mates of States,....). Our music is often played on the net or on the radios in Europe, but only indie networks.

Set List

We play 12 songs in 45 minutes, but we always fit to the venue, we are really used to play in all types of places, like big stage, bars, pubs, squats,... We like it when the whole concert is a collaboration between everyone, not just one band playing/audience watching/promoter setting up the show, but a real party with everybod involved !
