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.
"Carmeline and the brothers may engage in a happy duel here, but we are the winners as they serve up this bruiser of a song"
"Ce clip marque donc l’avènement d’une nouvelle identité visuelle pour le groupe, qui vient magnifier un univers musical qui n’a rien perdu de sa superbe."
"SUPERNAIVE c’est deux frères qui vivent entre Paris et Tokyo, mélangeant musique électronique et acoustique d’une manière unique et délicate."
"Un clip où on suit cette dernière dans une course effrénée, dont chaque plan est plus grandiose que l’autre. Le tout sublimé par un morceau qui nous donne envie de se battre face à toutes les atrocités qui sont arrivées dernièrement
"Nekomata (...) qui pourrait passer pour l’équivalent français de Gorillaz. Entre ombres et lumières, dissonances saturées et rondeurs soul, Supernaive, au graphisme très abouti, propose un son à la fois moderne et chaleureux."
