Train Ride Music Sessions

 

Ban-projet-en-1426682392

 

Nadine is Swiss, Marie is French. They share the same passion for live music.

 

But Nadine is sad. She thought long and hard and said to herself:

It’s funny, Swiss artists don’t have too much trouble making a name for themselves in such a small country…yet they remain unknown in Europe at large – particularly in France.”

 

Nadine spoke to Marie, and they agreed: it doesn't make sense.

 

Thus the Train Ride Sessions were born.

 

The two ideas behind this project are:

* To offer these artists the possibility to play in an excellent Parisian venue

* To expose the French public to the cultural diversity and dynamism of the European scene

Train Ride Session #1 will take place April 2nd 2015 at L'International, a respected Parisian venue located in the lively and cosmopolitan Oberkampf-Ménilmontant neighbourhood.

 

Join us at our first session for a wonderful night with:

 

CHINOI (electro-punk)

 

Banchinoi-1425568924

 

Chinoi was born in 2012 to its two musician parents : Alexandre at the microphone and Mathieu on the synthesizers. This sweet and animated duo put on a live performance whose fervor often verges on madness.

 

Their first EP “Peaches” (2013) made major headlines immediately upon release. Notably, Inrocks Lab proclaimed Chinoi “one of the most promising electropop groups of 2013”. Now, two years later, their highly anticipated new EP “Montagne” is expected in late April 2015. “Montagne” gives way to pure fantasy : less pop, more somber, and cleverly absurd, it flirts with the apocalypse and promises to hypnotize fans into long listening sessions on repeat.

WAVING HANDS (synth-pop)

 

Banwavinghands-1425568976

 

Don’t be fooled by Waving Hands. While at first they may seem to be guileless pop musicians, the young Helvetians are formidable chemists that blend many influences.

After three years of preparation in the heart of Switzerland, more than 200,000 listens on Spotify, and opening for illustrious acts like Oscar and the Wolf, Waving Hands are hopping on the train and taking Europe by storm. Next stop: Paris.

Accompanied by a drummer, Waving Hands will take the stage and let their melodies do the talking. They invite you to join them in their distant mountains.
