      ABOUT

      SUPERNAIVE consists of two brothers – bound by blood and music – who live between Paris and Tokyo. They blend electronic and acoustic music with a unique and delicate touch. After the success of their EP «Dazed & Confused» in June 2017, they released «Lions & Pigs» in April 2018 and are now working on their debut album «Nekomata».

      The brothers chose to personify two oneiric characters that have almost identical faces. They cover their faces with masks that are symbol of eternal youth in Japanese Noh  theatre – allowing the music to give life to their poetic doubles.  They have performed DJ set and Live in many cities in France and across the world (Tokyo, New York, Hong Kong).

      LIVE

      The musicians personify their oneiric characters in their new live show by wearing their masks. On synthesizers, drum machines, and acoustic instruments (percussions and guitar) they play new, danceable versions of their tracks, more suitable for Live format. A 1.70 meter (5’7” inches) red lantern is placed at the center of the stage, fully equipped with LED lights, and video projections complete the esthetic of the set design.

      “NEKOMATA” ALBUM

      This debut album was recorded between Paris and Tokyo. It gets its name from the shape-shifting cat of the Japanese bestiary. It is to this day SUPERNAIVE ‘s most ambitious project with 13 eclectic tracks somewhere between “Dazed & Confused” roundness and “Lions & Pigs” saturated dissonance, with RnB and poprock vibes. The two brothers bring together light and shadow in an inspired and well thought through production. The use of old instruments unearthed from the graveyard of the analog synthesis by our archaeologist artists contributes to the bittersweet aesthetic, poetry and sensuality of this record that you will hum from the very first time you listen and will discover after the tenth.

       

      If each track has its own identity, often enhanced by the voices of guests artists, the music has its own character which gives such uniqueness and density to the project. Brought to life by dedicated graphic content, the tracks can tell their own story independently from the album and are therefore suited to be released as singles. Four music videos come with the release of Nekomata for “Under Control”, “Warrior”, “Give Me Love” and “Forget Me Now”, directed by Antoine Bal (A$ap Rocky, MadeinTYO etc.) and filmed in Tokyo, Paris and the south of France. These videos set the scene of the unique and poetic universe of SUPERNAIVE . This album is the starting point of their new Live Tour.

      “LIONS & PIGS” EP

      Both dark and enigmatic, the four tracks on «Lions & Pigs» were composed in the suffocating heat of a Parisian summer. Here, the musical world is organic, moist and sticky, and contrasted by sharp and metallic industrial sounds. The tracks – somewhere between roughness and gentleness – remind us of a tormented nocturnal landscape. Contrary to their debut EP, the musicians are here introducing the angular and saturated «SUPER» part of SUPERNAIVE. They mark here a radical and clear artistic turn which give to their audience a unique musical and visual experience.

      Released on April, 27th 2018.

      “DAZED & CONFUSED” EP

      In this EP, SUPERNAIVE talks about the emotional turbulence of adolescence which is brought to life in the music video of «Opal Waltz». «Dazed & Confused» follows a chronological order: between the first track (Monsters in my bed) and the last one (Sacrifice) childhood innocence is forever lost. The project’s esthetic is inspired by the work of Japanese mangaka Katsuhiro Otomo. This first EP represents the «NAIVE» part of the duo.
