I sat down to talk with 3 out of 4 of TEEERS in the 10th arrondissement. It’s supposed to be a ‘cool’ area of Paris and we end up at a cool bar too where we bought some bee(e)rs.;)
The boys make music that is up-beat and fun, so I was happy when they were too. Get your kleenex girls, because these boys will be causing some Teeers.
WORDS: ANNA SAMPSON
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TODAY?
All: We’ve been rehearsing.
WHERE DO YOU REHEARSE?
Victor: Clement has a little studio in his basement which we use. It’s nice because we can play when we want and have room to get some new equipment!
Victor: Yes! It was really hot inside but it was very fun and a lot of people showed up.
Adrien: It’s an amazing venue.
HAS LIVING IN PARIS SHAPED YOUR SOUND?
Victor: It’s a mix. I mean, we live in a big city, so are used to going out and being inspired by many things. We also have a french attitude .
Adrien: We mostly listen to foreign bands.
WHO ARE YOU LISTENING 2?
Clement: Yeah, Rex Orange County is my favourite guy.
Victor: We love Mac DeMarco too.
WHAT DO YOU WRITE ABOUT?
V: We write about youth and our stories.
A: We talk about easy times in our lives. ‘Easy Times’ is actually a name of one of our songs coming out soon!
IF YOU COULD PERFORM ANYWHERE, WHERE WOULD YOU GO?
A: China or Japan!
C: Los Angeles
V: Tokyo! It’s not a typically rock n roll place, so it would be cool to see the contrast playing our music there.
C: A lot of french bands are going there at the moment; the Japanese seem to like French pop! (laughs)
WHERE SHOULD I GO TO LISTEN TO MUSIC IN PARIS?
A: Espace B. It’s great because all the good, smaller bands from abroad play!
V: La Cigale.
IF YOU WEREN’T IN A BAND, WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING?
A: I’d be a photographer.
V: I’d still want to be involved in music; so probably a producer.
C: I would definitely still being doing something musical.
DO YOU HAVE ANY HIDDEN TALENTS?
A: I have really good balance. I never fall over! (laughs)
V: I’m unbeatable at Guitar Hero!
C: I’m not sure really…

A: Joaquin Phoenix.
WHEN’S THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
A: Yesterday, over a girl.
C: I was crying over a girl too! (laughs)

IS THE BAND’S IMAGE IMPORTANT TO YALL?
A: Not really. We wear the same clothes day to day as we do at our shows.
