Festival de la Cité, Lausanne
Fabe Gryphin is one of those artists that simply doesn’t fit in a box and clearly doesn’t intend to. The singer/rapper blends an indie and folktronica sound to an alternative hip hop breed, mixing influences ranging from Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West and Frank Ocean to Bon Iver, Chet Faker, James Blake or The National.
The songwriter’s world is shaped with the help of four jazz and electro rooted musicians with a taste for experimentation.
After a first album Street & Flower : Summer X TIME in 2016, a win at Vernier Sur Rock
tremplin in 2017, a new EP PAIN released at Les Docks, Lausanne and a FCMA + prize in 2018, the band is on the rise and surely establishing itself as one of the Swiss act to keep an eye on.
Recorded at Blend Studio in Lutry, mixed at Greasy Records in Paris and mastered by Caduceus in Geneva, the 5 tracks on “PAIN” address sensitive topics while having a rather pop production. First single PTTFLR was released with a video directed by Mei Fa Tan thanks to The Music Video Contest which the band won in 2017. Willing to illustrate his music with visuals as much as possible, Fabe published a new music video for PAIN, directed by Michael Hartwell, in December 2018.
