about

about: is a female two-piece band, with Michèle Bernier Martin on keyboards, drum machine & back vocals. And Barbara Finck-Beccafico lead vocals, words, and VJ.

Our concept ? Four short albums over one year - a sort of initiatory path, inspired by the four noble truths of Buddha.

Our sound ? Psychélectro Lo-Fi. A blend of acoustic and electro, colored by unexpected sounds.... Wrapped up in a shoegaze feeling.

Our show ? Traveling between an audio and visual experience, through contemporary projections.

about: seeks to create beyond the music. Whether through poetry, projections during performances, photos ... It is the desire to integrate art in its entirety.


MARGA is the fourth EP of our tetralogy !

THANKS
This adventure has taught us to reflect upon the importance of taking responsibility for what we do with our lives. When the heart is true, the mind is peaceful. And this takes us back to where we started. Being at peace with what has been, and what is to come. Thanks to all the people who traveled along with us, you are all a part of what we are now.

Track Name: Amour Métastasé
AMOUR MÉTASTASÉ

Déroutant
Je me laisse surprendre
Par tout ce que tu sembles vouloir m'apprendre
Car tu propages tout

Immédiatement
Je réponds à ta contagion
En te laissant respirer mon air, sans soupçon
Car tu provoques tout

Intensément
J'aime me débattre
Contre le bien que tu me fais, même si c'est sans effet
Car tu t'accapares tout

Fatalement
J'apprends à vivre
Avec cette rage de l'instant qui me délivre
Car tu consumes tout

Amour Métastasé
Mon corps t'explore
Sans jamais t'apprivoiser
Track Name: Build it
BUILD IT

I’ve been told
I’ve always deeply known
What I wanted, needed
To accomplish my quest

I’ve been told
That when you want something
The universe conspires
Helping you achieve it

I’ve been told
That playing it safe
Is often more threatening
to freedom, than risk taking

Don’t just live a life
Fight one
Dream one
Build one

I’ve been told
Those who don’t understand
Will fail to comprehend
Its teachings, its treasures

I’ve been told
A gift should not be refused
Cause life may be listening
And next time be less giving

I’ve been told
That true love never seems
To get in someone’s way
Of fulfilling its dreams

Don’t just live a life
Fight one
Dream one
Build one
Track Name: Control
CONTROL

Control.

To exercise authoritative influence over; Direct.
To adjust to a requirement; Regulate.
To hold in restraint; Dominate.
To reduce the spread of. Prevent.
to prevent the flourishing of; Care.
lessen the intensity of; Handle.

A spirit presumed to speak or act through a medium.
A relation of constraint of one entity by another.

Control.

It's hard to free the fool, from the chains he reveres.
Freedom only rings, when opinions clash. Clash.
Set me free.

The only freedom you truly have is in your mind.
Cause a man is free at the moment he wishes to be.
Let it go, let it go, let it go

No one is free until everyone is free.
