After their colorful first album "Nekomata" and their powerful second album "Versions", SUPERNAIVE presents "Dordogne", their new hybrid project between a video game soundtrack and a real album.
This double LP of the two brothers includes 30 tracks, oscillating
between melancholy and wonder. They build a strong narrative throughout the songs, taking the listener by the hand to discover their unique poetic universe. Childhood is one of the band recurring themes, resonating here with the watercolor graphic universe of Cedric Babouche through his eponymous video game.
"Dordogne" is both the story of the composers and that of many young adults, nostalgic for the happy days spent alongside their grandparents during the school holidays.
Throughout the tracks, the listener will recognize warm sound textures (magnetic tape recorder, tube amplifier), gradually plunging him back into his forgotten youth.
SUPERNAIVE invite the Canadian Joseph Shabason on 4 tracks where he plays fabulous harmonized saxophone solos of which he alone has the secret.
Finally, the lyricist (and sister of the composers) Leo Mirage also wrote 4 key tracks of the album, which she performs herself for the first time.

To celebrate the first birthday of their album “Nekomata” (2020), Supernaive presents “Versions”, containing 8 alternative versions of their most famous songs as well as 2 bonus tracks.
With this new record, they offer bangers after bangers, from breakbeat to acid, in their own colorful way. Despite this explosive mixture, they keep their original sensitivity, and create a perfectly balanced composition, making their vintage synthesizers sing dreamlike melodies and spit relentless rhythms. As usual, François Baurin at mixing (Rone) and Alexis Bardinet at mastering (The Blaze), came to bring the last touch to this electronic piece.
You will (re)discover these 10 tracks in their live show, magnified by a tailor-made scenography and cinematographic projections, immersing yourself in their unique universe.
"We took great pleasure in radically transforming our tracks by imagining the crowd on the dance-floor. It was a way for us to escape in these times of confinement. We can't wait to play them to you in concert!" Supernaive

French duo SUPERNAIVE are releasing their debut album Nekomata. It gets its name from the shape-shifting cat of the Japanese bestiary.
The album was recorded between Paris and Tokyo. To this day, it is SUPERNAIVE's most ambitious project with 13 eclectic tracks, including electronic, RnB and pop rock vibes, somewhere between the roundness of the “Dazed & Confused” EP and the saturated dissonance of the EP “Lions & Pigs”
With this first album the two brothers bring together shadow and light in an inspired and well thought through production. The use of old instruments unearthed from the graveyard of the analog synthesis by our archaeologist artists contributes to the bittersweet aesthetic, poetry, and sensuality of this record that you will hum from the very first time you listen and will still discover after the tenth.
If each track has its own identity, often enhanced by the voices of guest artists, the music has its own character which gives such uniqueness and density to the project.
