Between darkwave and post-punk, Varsovie emerged in 2004. The creative output of Arnault Destal (lyrics/drums/arrangements) and Gregory Catherina (music/vocals/guitar), both ingrained figures of the French underground scene.
Armed with influences such as Joy Division, Bauhaus and a generation of decadent bands, journeying through a literary overdose that leaves irreversible repercussions and a pronounced taste for vertigo, Varsovie's repertoire is raw and powerful, in the image of the city (Warszawa) that, in the middle of the apocalypse, fought on, area by area, barricade by barricade, even if it was too late, even if the everything seemed to be already lost.
Joined by Thibault Chapelat on bass, and replaced by Yann Four in 2006, the band brings all of this energy and passion together on stage, radical and effervescent, in balance on the edge, the last cigarette before the long fall.
