KM : Tell us about your next EP “GET ON MY BOAT”.
ZL : It’s a disc with 5 tracks in different moods. There’s a little bit of everything I love, songs with catchy melodies, groove and emotion with the title Easily. For this EP, I collaborated with the singer Julie Thuillier for the texts writing, with DOMBRANCE from DBFC band and Jean Baptiste BEURIER for the arrangements and the english Tom CHARMICKAEL (Black James, Is Tropical) with the mix. The disc was mastered at Globe Audio in Bordeaux.
KM : What are your expectations through the EP release ?
ZL : I would like people to sing the songs at the top of their voices in the morning when they wake up and to be in a good mood to go to work 🙂 That also makes them want to come and see us on stage because the formula with Emilie singing who is also an Hip Hop dancer and Fabian on the drums electro worth seeing 😉
KM : Can you tell us about your first music video “Burst Of Laughter”.
ZL : Its a clip that was made by a young Bordeaux duo Alexandra Rozas and Eloi Ficat from RIVAGE PRODUCTIONS. I wanted a refined aesthetic with a wonderful decor that we managed to find after long research … I chose a dancer for the title’s dance side. I like to see people dancing and especially during live !
KM : If you could go back, what would you change ?
ZL : Nothing !
KM : What are your musical inspirations ?
