BIO

The three members decided to start a band after what was supposed to be a one-off jam session in a rehearsal studio.

At the time they already knew each other for years and had previously played together in different bands, from heavy metal to flamenco fusion, but it was the first time they played just the three of them.

They think they’re a hard rock progressive band, but people keep tagging their music as seventies hard rock, stoner or psychedelic.

The band plays and writes music by instinct, there are no set rules. Each member immerse himself into the music without trying to fit into a specific musical style. Two tracks can have a complete different structure, yet making the three members equally passionate about the music.

They are from Toulouse, in the south of France, and they recorded and produced their first eponymous EP which was released in March 2017.
They now focus on booking shows to share their music on stage.
