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.


SAMUDAYA is the second EP of our tetralogy !

Inspired by the Second Noble Truth of Bouddha, it is the origin of suffering. The craving for sensual desires, craving for being, craving for non-being.

The Second Noble Truth states that there is an origin of suffering and that the origin of suffering is attachment to the three kinds of desire:
- desire for sense pleasure (kama tanha)
- desire to become (bhava tanha)
- desire to get rid of (vibhava tanha).

There is the origin of suffering, which is attachment to desire (Tanha). Desire should be let go of.
Desire has been let go of.

THANKS
Finding the source of our suffering is also finding the source of our happiness. Thanks to all the skeptics for making us strong. Thank you, friends and family, for making us even stronger.

Track Name: Granted
GRANTED

You took me for granted
But I won’t let you hurt me anymore
With my heart you played
Don’t even think about touching me no more

It’s when you disappeared
That I first understood
You had never believed
In unifying our bloods, our bloods

How can you repeat me
Over and over again
That you can’t anymore be
Without me without pain
Without me without pain

You took me for granted
But I won’t let you hurt me anymore
With my heart you played
Don’t even think about touching me no more

You gave me hope in us,
Then put the mess in my head

Lyrics : Barbara Finck-Beccafico
Track Name: Steinway
STEINWAY

How can I just thank you
Say I love You
I am not ready for this

And forever you left me
I’ll never have the strength
To forget you

And I have nothing else to say
Nothing else to write
But tell me : is it enough ?

I can’t say that it’s all done
You were so proud
Hold me in your arms again

You’ll stay in my memories
Never, never leave my heart
I don’t want to let you go

And I have nothing else to say
Nothing else to write
But tell me : is it enough ?

And I have nothing else to say
Nothing else to write
But tell me : is it enough ?

Lyrics : Barbara Finck-Beccafico
Track Name: Run
RUN

Think your safe, because you told the truth
Can't complain, to the big man in a suit

And you'll run, And you'll run, And you'll run
And you'll run, And you'll run, And you'll run
Realize where you're from

Blue blood soldiers, red walls of power
Army of sheep, they're ancestors weep
I'm a pantomime, a tool used for a face
A smile to hide the crime, they closed the case

And you'll run, And you'll run, And you'll run
And you'll run, And you'll run, And you'll run
Realize where you're from

Grey clouds surround your hopes
Drowning in a sea with no floats
So we can go back to reality
Come back to humanity
Throw me a rope, throw me a rope, throw me a rope
Throw me a rope, throw me a rope, throw me a rope

And you'll run, And you'll run, And you'll run
And you'll run, And you'll run, And you'll run
Realize where you're from

Lyrics by Laurent E. Malo
Track Name: Préméditation
PRÉMÉDITATION

Souffrir au point d'en accepter l'habitude
Envie de rendre, rendre tout ce qui me hante

Désir de mourir qui devient le besoin
Ma peine surtout mes chaines, portent un seul nom

Crime avec préméditation
Crime avec préméditation

Penser à elle et accepter qu'elle te touche
T'écouter et me perdre dans tes mensonges

Tu hurles que tu m'aimes, ta peau sent ses caresses
Dépossédée de tout, de moi-même, de moi-même

Crime avec préméditation
Crime avec préméditation
