Next.Ape is drummer and composer Antoine Pierre’s newest project, in which he joins forces with Veronika Harcsa (vocals), Lorenzo Di Maio (guitar) and Jérôme Klein (keys). Four musicians enjoying the exploration of a psychedelic blend of alternative rock and trip-hop. At the crossroads of Radiohead, Damon Albarn, Modeselektor, Portishead and Miles Davis.
The band has a unique sound: a slamming snare drum, a deep bass on the Moog, a distorted guitar, some keyboards and of course a clear and charismatic voice. The groove is hectic and incisive. Their improvisations give you goosebumps. In short: their music moves you.
This February, they will release their first EP, « Next.Ape », on the new label founded on this special occasion by Antoine Pierre himself: « Shapes No Frame ». The lyrics, as well as the music, plunge the listener in a cinematographic universe and depict today’s reality: more and more oppressive but also full of unexpected possibilities.
Discover here in premiere the poetic music video of « Undone », one of the tracks of the debut EP.
