Vava: My name is Vava Dudu as in French “Ca Va”. I’m the singer and writer..
Stephane: I am an artist and musician. I compose and perform the electronic parts and beats of La Chatte.
Nikolu: Hi! I’m the guitarist!
“Bastet” is an interesting album mixed with soundscapes, jerky synths and almost animalistic vocal arrangements. When listening to it, I felt like I was in a fantasy world run by haughty cats and nintendo characters. What can we expect from your next album “Crash Ocean”?
V: I expect to give a Tsunami of love all over the world.
N: “Bastet” was our “black” thing…. “Crash Océan” is our blue one!
S: “Bastet” was a collection of titles that we experienced on stage for many years. The sources of sound and inspiration were very diverse. “Crash Ocean” on the contrary was composed and recorded in a much shorter time. It is more condensed, but still very rough and epidermic. Most of the songs came out from improvisations during a stay of Vava and Nikolu at my place in Berlin, with very few material. A beat box and a line of synth, a guitar and a great quantity of white wine. Some of the songs were made in just one take. Blue synthetic tears on waving crystalline furs… That’s how I see the songs of this album.
