Seven male and female musicians make up this French collective. Like a monster with seven heads, Catastrophe’s roots can be found in Toulouse, Nantes, Chartres, Strasbourg and Paris.
Plurality also reigns supreme among these seven personalities who list Kamasi Washington, Arcade Fire, David Byrne, Childish Gambino, Chassol and Aquaserge among their influences. Hard to pin down? Not at all, you just have to take a good listen to their music and suddenly everything falls into place. United by their common passion for experimentation and fantasy, these musicians on the Tricatel label released their debut album in 2018, La nuit est encore jeune, the follow-up to a book by the same name published in 2017. They are definitely unafraid of breaking the rigid boundaries of pop, and that’s far from being a catastrophe.
