Charles: Absolutely, it really depends on every song. Most of the time we would do the lyrics first, talk them through together… In fact, we try to divide the work but at the end we just invade each other’s job (laughs). Regarding the influences, we are all influenced by lots of bands from the 80s, but what we mainly listen to is people doing stuff right now in 2016. We have influences by French, English, American bands: Flavien Berger, La Femme, The Drums.
Louis: I think we all have different influences but The Drums is one of those bands that unite us together. However, another big inspiration, not just musically, are Salut c’est Cool, a French techno band that are crazy funny. They play really fast techno music with stupid lyrics, like recipes on how to make mashed potatoes (laughs).
Joseph: You think it’s a joke, so when you listen to it you think “Maybe it’s a joke but I just love this song!” And it’s so cool, we want to do the same.
Charles: At the end, it’s the idea of not being very serious. If music starts to sound as a serious business, we are not part of that situation.
