Happy new year folks! Wish you all the best for 2016, especially tons of great new records, shows, new bands…whatever!

CHAVIRé (French for “capsized”), just released what’s, for instance, one of my favourite 2015 demo tape although I’m not a true connoisseur of that kind of punk rock. Actually, France has a large tradition of late 90s/early 00s screamo bands, singing in French and that’s basically what’s introduce me to that specific type of music – I do not listen that much to French singing bands and I personnally think emo music’s the perfect way to transmit the poetry of our language.
CHAVIRé are pretty young but their demo is super efficient: great atmosphere, great lyrics and inspiration.
1/ CHAVIRÉ is the new “kid on the block” of french emo/screamo scene. Can each one of you introduce how, when and why he joined the band and explain us why CHAVIRÉ walks over French emo tradition (bands like AMANDA WOODWARD, DAÏTRO, MIHAI EDRISCH, AUSSITÔT MORT…)?
E – Hi Jean, so yes we are CHAVIRÉ and we come from Nantes, Western France. I would say that we started rehearsing something like a year and a half ago, personally I wanted to start something that would have been a combination between the music from the bands you quote below and some political ideals I wanted to talk about.
A – We’ve been really eager to play in a french emo band for a long time, so as soon as we started talking seriously about it… We had no hesitation, we were in.
