The wannabe French trio will release their first full-length in November.
Pepijn Lanen, Pieter Janssen and Rimer Veeman claim to be from Champagne, France. Why? "In the mind we are all based in the region of champagne... It's all about making due with what's around us. There's a-holes and douchebaggery and fuckboy music and culture everywhere everyday, probably even in the Champagne area, but it's all about making it happen in the mind. It's about mixing and matching. Otherwise every day is another day." OK.
We've been poring over that quote for a day now and still quite haven't figured it out, but we've also been listening to the trio's album, Flage, as well which is a distracting bit of disco pop, New Wave and techno. It's the type of music you'd make with your friends—if your friends were from the Netherlands and constantly adopted a French accent. Or an English one: The group sings in English, Dutch, German and French throughout the album's fourteen songs, seemingly picking which language to go with right before the track begins.
Don't believe us? Check the video to "Breakfast" and hear the whole thing for yourself on November 3. Warning: The lyrics aren't exactly safe for work.
