LA Music Review | Art, stories and advice
Fun, catchy and full of flavor!
Hi Carré, welcome to LA Music Review! Tell us a little bit about you and your music?
CARRÉ is a special project in the sense that it’s an actual concept band…
The message and the imagery came long before the music. It feels that the music is actually here to serve a higher purpose, that it might not be the center of attraction.
Art is all about perception.
So with CARRÉ we definitely make an effort to leave a door open in any of our musical compositions and/or lyrics. Personal interpretation is key: it’s all subjective.
Congrats on the release! What was your inspiration when you were writing this project?
CARRÉ live set is inspired by performance art and art as a whole mainly.
Soulwax is also a huge inspiration for us and the way they use lights and design during their set. The monochrome aspect of colors, the squares representing the essence of our band (the square represents the perfect shape that only exist in our existence because of our experience with reality), the background images by Netchaiez (with whom we’ve been working since the beginning) are all a part of a visual experience that we’re trying to bring to our audience.

What lessons would you like to impart with your audience?
ROLLERCOASTER is a song written about my first encounter with DMT; the rollercoaster of the effect that I ran into, the disappearance of any notion of past, present, future; the parallele with a relationship sweeping you off your feet and the fear of letting go. It was a very cathartic song to write and not having done a proper music video for it because of the pandemic, we wanted to release a live version of it to share our experience with everyone.
What is your favorite part of this body of work?
This performance was recorded right before our first show at that same location later that night. The concept was to bring our public to a concert not held at a regular venue but rather an art space, where we set up everything to create a cozy surrealistic atmosphere. We ended up pairing our night with a few screenings of short movies as well as an art performance.
