A music group from France that represents a really eclectic blend of music traditions and styles, sharing with us it's unique artworks..Listen "BUDAPEST" !













AM:Why Budapest? This name has a special meaning for you and for your artistic identity?

This name is an imaginary land full of secret and mystery. This kind of big, dark green landscape...It's a way for us to escape actual place and time.

But it's not really about the city where we're never been!

AM:Rock, Electro, Soul, Trip-hop, why your music is mixed and blended with different influences?

Because we listen and enjoy so many different music! It's hard for us to choose one thing and let the rest over!

AM:Present to us your work step by step till today( EP, LP, tours etc.)

Our 1st EP came in 2011. We do a lot of touring in France before we start to record our first album "Alcaline". We always play new track in concert, before we put them on a record, this is the best way for us to know if the song is good enough or if we have to work on it again!

We recorded our last album this summer, the mixing is almost done... We start touring again in February, in France, Belgium, Germany and we should play in England in March/April

AM:What's your Songwriting Process?

Songs usually come from one of us and reworked and adapted by the band. This process never change during this 5 year together but it seems to become a little easier now...

AM:How useful is Internet to open new opportunities for you ?

Internet is a wonderful place to discover artist and music and it allow new paths for an artist to be creative, and it's a great tool where you can be the one and only person in charge of your business. But it's important to keep close and real friends because internet is a place you can easily lose yourself into!

AM:What other forms of Art you believe impact your music?

First time I met Gaëlle (singer) she was painting and studying at Beaux Arts School in France, i believe pictorial art have a deep impact on our music, we think a lot in term of pictures when we play together. Usually pictures, colours come first then music... We love Caspar David Friedrich landscape painting. We also read a lot of XIX's French literature.

AM:What's next for the future? Tell me few things about your next projects.

We wrote some music for Tones & Pictures project. It's an orchestral version of our first record Alcaline, we do a few concerts and shot an -unreleased yet- video at Musée Soulages in France, that was a very exciting time, we just have to release the video now... But in the same time we have to finish next album! It's a lot of work because we are quite self-producing all our stuffs, we have to think about artwork, make some video clip etc... And of course we care a lot about the sound of the record too...

AM: My pleasure to have you here guys! All the best !
