The G FR// Rock
The G is a duo of real brothers, born after 2000, and formed in 2014. Fiu, the elder is on drums and LuiG on guitar both sing texts that the father writes for them. Since Corsica their inspiration has its source in 70s rock, grunge 90s and White Stripes. Whether on the Main Square Festival stage, that of the Gibus du Reservoir, in the first half of the Midnight Oil Olympia or Insus, their appearance of perfect son-in-law always evokes at first a certain innocence … but each time the public is seized by the energy of the first sound that springs from their fingers. The G then shows a disconcerting maturity that could inspire some of their elders.
One Sentence. Supervisor feat. Bahur Ghazo CH//Krautpop
With “This Heavy Sea”, voted best album of the year in 2013 by the SRF, a tour in China in 2014 and growing recognition in their native Switzerland, One Sentence. Supervisor have a very promising future ahead of them. Formed in Baden in 2011, OSS recalls the phantoms of the eighties with their catchy, misty new wave pop, unencumbered by too many references. A universe that is hard to categorize, in which omnipresent synthetic sounds meet tense repetitive rhythms without ever becoming tedious. As for their obsessive melodies playing between shadow and light, they are tinged with psychedelic colors that unfold like some celestial stairway towards the imaginary. In fall 2016 they released their new record “Temporär Musik 1-13” through Swiss label “Oh, Sister! Records”. It was voted for the “Indiesuisse Album of the year” and it was rereleased in France in December 2017.

The Fin. JP//Indie
