100% nature

29 Apr

Howdy!

We have spent the past weekend in the amazing southwest of France, Gers where our trip first began in 2010. So much has happened since. Its incredible!
Last time we were here was almost exactly a year ago, when we recorded all the vocals for our debut album. Though then it was about -5 Celsius inside, now its a bit warmer and sunnier!

There´s been a new addition to the family : a beautiful foal! We have never witnessed something like that before, waaa! Now, only few days after its birth the foal and its mother are happily running in the green fields.

Manu’s dad Jean Laudic and Anne Gouyon organize camps for kids during summer and if you want to learn more about their project and what happens in their farm you Should really follow their blog L´Aube du Chêne, here http://www.laubeduchene.fr/ and drop them a comment 🙂

Here are some pictures I took with my phone, just so you get a little touch of how it is here at the moment

De Paris avec l´amour

23 Apr

Here we are, just arrived to Paris last night. Manu feels so good to be home, and I do also. Last time was too many months ago! The spring is in its blossom and we cant be outside without jackets! Wohooo! Today we´ve been working on some lyrics and music but honestly, we´ve spend most of the time outside in the sun 🙂

We had the first shows of our tour in Breda, Zwolle and Zurich. We just love the Netherlands, everyone seems so happy and they were taking good care of us. The first venue, Mezz Cafe in Breda (south of Holland) was small and cosy venue where they have live music couple times a week. Definitely a place worth checking out if you´re around there. Here´s a picture we already posted once but here it´s again. Manu setting up at Mezz Cafe:

A VERY filling breakfast in Breda the next morning, before heading to Zwolle:

Breakfast Breda

We hopped on the train and headed a bit more north towards Zwolle. We walked around the city and it seemed really nice too. There was a very cute little teashop where we found some good tea and infusion. We didn’t have too much time before the soundcheck, so we basically went straight to the venue. The main venue is called Hedon and we played in a venue called Popfront attached to Hedon, a bit more intime place for live music. Once again audience was warm and welcoming! Thank you everyone for coming out!

The next day, on Saturday we took the plane towards Switzerland! We had our third show at Komplex 457 event called Sounds Nordic, Sounds Good. We played with Johnossi, Amanda Jenssen, Helldorado and The Asteroids Galaxy Tour. The place was packed and mood was great. After the show we got to spend two more days in Zurich with Eva´s cousins place, what a relaxing couple days! 🙂

Until then, we wish lots of sun and happiness to your days. Thank you for following.
