about

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

Our sound ? Psyché-Folk Lo-Fi. A blend of acoustic and electro, colored by unexpected sounds. Revealing the beauty that can exist in imperfection, our music explores the human soul.

Our show ? Traveling between an audio and a visual experience, through contemporary and original live video projections.

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

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


NIRODHA is the third EP of our tetralogy !

Inspired by the Third Noble Truth of Bouddha, it represents the fact that suffering can be overcome and happiness attained.

This is perhaps the most important of the Four Noble Truths because in it the Buddha reassures us that true happiness and contentment are possible.

When we give up useless craving and learn to live each day at a time, enjoying without restlessly wanting the experiences that life offers us, patiently enduring the problems that life involves, without fear, hatred and anger, then we become happy and free.

There is cessation of suffering.
Nirodha should be realized.
Nirodha has been realized.

Track Name: Shame
SHAME

It’s morning, seven forty nine
I’m alone, with a glass of wine
Even though it’s crowded outside
I just feel like I need to hide

I pretend to be just the way you want so see me
Unbearable, unstandable

I wonder
Why you leave me in such a wonder
I wonder
Why you leave me in such a wonder

One bed and a coffee maker
You promised you‘d leave the lights on
I draw my heart on a piece of paper
And you ripped if off

I pretend to be just the way you want so see me
Unbearable, unstandable

I wonder
Why you leave me in such a wonder
I wonder
Why you leave me in such a wonder

Shame on you!



Lyrics by Barbara Finck-Beccafico
Track Name: One of those
ONE OF THOSE

Had one of those nights
One of those nights with you
You were one of those guys
One of those that shine through

Had one of those nights
One of those nights alone
It was one of those downs
One of those that kills you

I wish I could come home to you
To someone, to someone like you
Don’t you see they’ve picked up on our sparks?
Can’t we just stop pretend, stop pretend

Had one of those days
One of those days with you
You were one of those obsessions
One of those that break through

Had one of those days
One of those days alone
I was one of those fools
One of those that fights you

I wish I could come home to you
To someone, to someone like you
Don’t you see they’ve picked up on our sparks?
Can’t we just stop pretend, stop pretend

I wish I could come home to you
To someone, to someone like you
Don’t you see they’ve picked up on our sparks?
Can’t we just stop pretend, stop pretend

Lyrics by Barbara Finck-Beccafico
Track Name: Collateral Damage
COLLATERAL DAMAGE

Nothing remains, just her image
When I lost her in that voyage
Still keeping me like a hostage
She is collateral damage

Some say that “true love waits”
When I met you, I loved her
Some say that “the loser hates”
When I left you, I lost her

And I can still hear her smiles
The vivid sound of her innocence
Memories start to feel like exiles
Unexpected, we just made sense

Looking around, she won’t go anywhere
Running around, seemed true yet getting blur
How much longer can I bare
The thought of never knowing her

For her sake I need to let go
For my sake I need to let go

Collateral damage

Lyrics by Barbara Finck-Beccafico
Track Name: Et demain
ET DEMAIN

Chemin vers l’exil sur l’autoroute du ciel
L’atlantique mon géant, barrière frêle
Je suis chez moi partout et nulle part, surtout ailleurs
Et pourtant famille adoptive vous avez mon cœur
Et demain ?

J’ai mis des étoiles sur l’un de mes plafonds
J’ai crée mon propre univers, c’est si simple dans le fond
Slalomant entre rencontres, choix et déceptions
De mes plus grands voyages, celui de la vie, vous êtes mon exception

Et demain ? Acquis ?
Et demain ? Indécis.

J’avance pas à pas dans la mélancolie
Je meurs de toi et tant pis si ça fait mal, tu m’es indispensable
Je m’enfuis pardonne-moi, je t’en pris ne sois pas triste
Toi mon ange tu me dis que je suis ta plus belle cicatrice
Et demain ?

Plus jamais seule, où que j’aille
Orphelin, sera le dernier de mes damnes
Je ne deviendrai pas un fantôme aux couleurs aquarelles
Car je suis noir ou blanc et que tu es mon arc-en-ciel

Loin des yeux, loin du cœur, ce proverbe est menteur
Un amour viscéral qui m’empêche d’avoir peur
Le yin et le yang d’un monde sans attaches
Se venteront-ils d’avoir effleuré ce qu’on partage ?

Et demain ? Démolit ?
Et demain ? Interdit.

C’est lorsque les « aux revoirs » m’étranglent jusqu’aux larmes
Que j’en apprends encore sur moi-même, sur comme je t’aime

Et demain ?
Et demain ?
Et demain ?

Hypnotisée par cette prolifération
Sans contrefaçon vous êtes ma seule raison

Et demain ?
Et demain ?
Et demain ?

Rien.
