EASY Times Ahead: TEEERS Interview

TEEEERS1
Adrien (keyboards), Clement (drummer), Victor (singer), Odilon (bassist)

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! 

 

I FIRST SAW YOU PLAY AT LES BAIN A COUPLE MONTHS AGO. DID YOU ENJOY IT?

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?

Adrien: Homeshake and we love Rex Orange County.

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)
