Le Port Franc, Sion
BLOW is an alchemy. Not only between the group’s four members, all of whom have been friends for years, but also between pop and electronic music. An intelligent balance that has characterized the music of these Parisians for the last three years. With three EPs already under its belt (“I” followed by “Fall in the Deep” in 2016 and “Vertigo Introduction” in January 2018), the group has cemented its place as one of the most promising French electronic pop bands by releasing its first album “Vertigo” on June 8th 2018. BLOW’s popularity stems above all from the seductive nature of its music, which it has nurtured from the very beginning. Songs such as “Fall in the Deep” (with already four million plays on Spotify) or “You Killed Me on the Moon” (the soundtrack for a Citroën advertising campaign) have, like others, been stepping stones for the group.
They all have strong musical backgrounds. Thomas, Pierre-Elie and Jean-Etienne attended the Music Academy International in Nancy, France, and the first two also graduated from the French Conservatoire system. Thomas, the bassist, was a member of one of the most important bands in the Rennes musical scene, Her, whereas Jean-Etienne has long been a live musician and composer for well-established French artists. He continues to compose for a large number of projects in France.
BLOW draws much of its inspiration from the Pink Floyd of the Gilmour period, Moderat, Darkside and Jungle for its energy. All of the group’s members have backgrounds in rock music, which explains the importance of the guitars and lends the group it's pop aspect, supported by catchy riffs and melodic inventiveness. If this alchemy has managed to bring audiences to their feet at festivals such as We Love Green, Trans Musicales or the two sold-out Parisian concerts at Point Ephémère and then at Badaboum, their success goes all the way back to the childhoods of the members of BLOW.
