“Melancholic pop has rarely sounded nicer” says OOR magazine. Wonderful, but très.b is more than just that. Fronted by the cutest bass player you’ll ever see they combine the sound of Sonic Youth, Bjork, P.J Harvey and Feist. Victor Van Vugt mixed their new record. What else do you need to hear?

Biography

“Melancholic pop has rarely sounded nicer” writes the Dutch music magazine OOR about debut-ep Neon Chameleon. Wonderful compliment but très.b is more than just that.

It is an International formation: Polish singer, half Danish/half English drummer and a half Dutch/half American guitarist, which
started at a Danish “Hojskole” (high school) to later move to The Netherlands and Poland.

The band name can be translated directly from French, meaning “very b” which stands for their music being rough and unpolished (B-class) as well as the members not beloning to any "one" location, which makes them B-citizens everywhere they go. OOR writes in their review about the influences of the band: “Misia Furtak sounds like a mixture between Björk and PJ Harvey.” Furthermore, the three piece has also been compared to bands like Sonic Youth. Dutch Magazine Fret concludes: “The music won’t bore you for a second and makes you curious about the band's new material.”

The band first self-released an EP (Neon Chameleon 2006) and an album called "Scylla and Charybdis" (2007). In June 2010 they signed to Pomaton EMI in Poland and their most recent full lenght major label debut called "The Other Hand" came out 21st September. The album was recorded in Warsaw and mixed in New York City by Victor Van Vugt, who has worked with acts like: PJ Harvey, Nick Cave and Depeche Mode. The album has been getting great reviews from the most notable music magazines in Poland. Recently "The Other Hand" was awarded with Fryderyki 2011, The Polish Music Industry Award, for Best Debut of 2010.

très.b has given over 100 shows at festivals and venues all over Europe since last year. The band shared the stage with acts like: TV on the Radio, Jamie Lidell, Myslovitz, Spiritualized, Asteroids Galaxy Tour, Seabear and many many more.

Lyrics

Orange, Apple

Written By: Misia Furtak


Orange, Apple

I overlap with you
In an uneven way
Although I know the common ground
I seem to stray

I would like to stop my head
Processing everything you said

And then I'm back at start
And limp my way to you

I would like to stop my head
Processing everything you said

And then I'm back at start
And limp my way to you
I stay calm
And you pull the door to

I would like to stop my head
Processing everything you said

Venus Untied

Written By: Anthony Chorale


Venus Untied

The last thing I remember
Before I hit the ground
Is when I last remembered
Is when I lost the time

Feelings warm that render
The Venus on my mind
But when I reassemble
I will lose the time

When I last surrendered
Feeling more untied
I don't even remember
When I lost the time
When I last surrendered
Feeling more untied
I don't even remember
Cause I just lost the time

- Oh when at last I forgot the time -

The first years I remember
Venus at last untied
But never before her ascendence
Cause I just lost the time
