Shoefiti

Shoefiti

Inspired by the nineties indie rock scene, Shoefiti blends bright melodies and bursts of noisy harmonic frictions, adding a modern fuzzy sound to the whole. The live performance includes musicians sweating on stage, a singer that doesn't hesitate to go down in the crowd and shoes being flung across the venue.

Year 2013 had a lot going on around the first album "Only Mountains Never Meet". Shoefiti toured France, England and Asia (Tokyo & Seoul). A 3D music video developed the visual side of the band and was welcomed in film festivals (Intendence Film Festival, Naoussa International Festival). Songs were also used for the score of films (Zima - Silver Leopard in Locarno, City of Dreams - an international feature film about Detroit). The band played gigs in atypical places (Saint Merri church, Premieres Fois soirées) and renowned venues (Divan du Monde, Glazart). Then in 2014, the band locked itself in the studio to record its new album CORIOLIS!

Released in April 2015, CORIOLIS delivers polished songs, with elaborated structures on which rock arrangements are developed with pinches of psychedelic or noisy textures. François Clos (sound director at La Blogotheque) co-produced the album while leaning towards gritty garage sounding techniques to bring up the dirty randomness a rock album needs (the drum distorts, the bass growls, vocals overload the preamps, and guitars play dissonant fuzzed anti-solos).

As the bands tours to get CORIOLIS heard, new songs are written to keep the performances exciting and more music videos get released showing a band that matters for its visual side.
