Supernaive Versions

After burning cars, driving a Toyota 2000GT (https://bit.ly/3u6Ubnk), partying in Tokyo (https://bit.ly/3xzQmZW), and being on a TV show (https://bit.ly/3e77QVG) for their debut album “Nekomata” (2020), Supernaive decided to turn their most famous tracks into club versions. 

« The idea came to us last year during confinement in Paris, not being able to listen to or play music in concert. The composition of “Versions” became for us a way to escape, to dream of more festive days, while waiting to be able to go back on stage. » 

This album is also an introduction to their live show, which we hope you will be able to discover soon! 

Supernaive consists of two brothers – bound by blood and sound – blending electronic and acoustic music in an inventive and delicate way. Masks, symbols of eternal youth in Japanese Noh theater cover their faces, allowing the music to give life to their poetic doubles.

To celebrate the first birthday of their album “Nekomata” (2020), Supernaive presents “Versions”, containing 8 alternative versions of their most famous songs as well as 2 bonus tracks. With this new record, they offer bangers after bangers, from breakbeat to acid, in their own colorful way. Despite this explosive mixture, they keep their original sensitivity, and create a perfectly balanced composition, making their vintage synthesizers sing dreamlike melodies and spit relentless rhythms. As usual, François Baurin at mixing (Rone) and Alexis Bardinet at mastering (The Blaze), came to bring the last touch to this electronic piece.
You will (re)discover these 10 tracks in their live show, magnified by a tailor-made scenography and cinematographic projections, immersing yourself in their unique universe.
“We took great pleasure in radically transforming our tracks by imagining the crowd on the dance-floor. It was a way for us to escape in these times of confinement. We can’t wait to play them to you in concert!” » Supernaive.

Nekomata by Supernaive

Supernaive, what a great name that is, I liked it before I even listened to them. The brothers Baptiste and Lucas Malgoire have been working together as Supernaive and released some excellent material over the years. 2017 gave us the E.P. Dazed & Confused, not to be confused with the song that Jimmy Page ripped off from Jake Holmes. And do not be dazed by the movie Dazed and Confused, produced by Richard Linklater which gives us a look at coming of age in 1970’s Texas. The Supernaive E.P., Dazed & Confused is a piano-driven electronica journey and proved to be a strong start for the boys that share time between Tokyo and Paris, France, not to be confused with Paris, Texas. The movie Paris, Texas, gave us the excellent music score by Ry Cooder since we are talking about music today.

In 2018 the lads Malgoire gave us Lions & Pigs, an ethereal, esoteric darker sound than their previous work, in a right way. This four-song E.P. has an edge to it that cuts through to our ears. BTW, excellent cover art.

And now we have all that 2020 has become with the redeeming grace of great music, specifically the full-length album Nekomata. Dozens of listens into this album and I still don’t know what to say. It is powerful without being pushy, beautiful without being gaudy, layered without being rock. They don’t just walk to the beat of their own drum, they beat the drum, and then we walk to that beat with them. Supernaive have released a new video & single ‘Under Control’ (ft. NAL) along with their debut album Nekomata

Warrior

French producers and brothers Supernaive are releasing new single ‘Warriors, taken from their debut album Nekomata. Mixing electronica with R&B they present a palate for the vocals of Carmeline, who also stars in the video:

WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZ1pvnD1yGo&feature=emb_title

Recorded between Paris and Tokyo, the record features elements of electronica and RnB while drawing on Japanese cultural reference points, most obviously in the masks, they wear which are a symbol of eternal youth in Japanese Noh theatre.

The soundtrack provides the backdrop for the narrative of the song – Carmeline is a warrior running from something or someone through terrain that varies from the stark almost Matian rocky outcrops to fields of plenty. There are two scenes of Carmiline setting a car on fire and walking away.

The first fire could be the start of her conflict. The second opens the door to the end of the battle, where we see the Japanese masks.

Inspired by early Tomb Raider games along with the tension found in 1970s thrillers such as Spielberg’s Duel, the video plays out Carmeline’s lyrical story, depicting her being hunted in a high-speed pursuit across an unforgiving wasteland.

‘Warriors’ will be available everywhere from May 22nd 2020.
