Biography

BETWEEN EXPERIMENTAL POP, POST ROCK AND ELECTRONIC FOLK, 16PAC’S MUSIC MEETS ITS INFLUENCES (BJORK, PORTISHEAD, RADIOHEAD, CURE, NEIL YOUNG…) AND OFFERS A GENUINE UNIVERSE IN CONSTANT EVOLUTION.

Everything starts in 2001, when François Puech decides to take a year off from his job as a software engineer to travel the world and record a solo album on his own. He meets Emma Laporte who sings in her own band and hire her to do backing vocal. They love the experience and decide to carry on in recording few songs in a more electro/trip hop style. From this session will come three songs including “My Heart Is Full Of Music”, which will be selected the following year on the first CQFD compilation of the famous french magazine “Les Inrockuptibles”. They complete the production of an 8 tracks CD demo, which raises some nice reviews from webzine like Liability Webzine or Connexion Bizarre and hire a friend, bassist Vincent Soleil for their first gigs in Paris. Now a trio, they start the recording of their second album. “Endless Work In Progress” is out in March 2006. From the electro pop style of the beginning, they’re now exploring a deeper and complex universe (electro folk, electro rock, post rock…). Again this album get them a lot of good reviews and they play dozens of gigs and radio shows in Paris and in France. This album is selected in 2007 for the compilation “Nouveaux Talents FNAC Music”.

Their records are avalaible in shops and from main online music stores through COD&S and Believe
