“I can’t wait. Such a cool line up. Three bands who move in different spheres while sharing the intent to create music that is honest, forward thinking and uninhibited. I first met Stephane from Alcest last year, discussing 90’s shoegaze bands in a forest in Lithuania! He is someone for whom I have great respect. Their music is melodic & soulful, full of dream-like imagery. Mamiffer are true artists. The dynamic mix of stark piano, crushing melancholic textures and choral reverie is something to behold. Exactly the kind of thing I’m into, so I’m really looking forward to it.” – Vincent Cavanagh
