TOTORRO (FRI)

French quartet TOTORRO will be playing at Clockenflap 2017.

TOTORRO is one unique band. Hard to classify. Instrumental music that tells you stories, that makes you feel special, special sensations, special emotions. It is complicated, but it is catchy! Like a magical maths teacher who makes you love maths in a magical way. No singer. Some people say it is ""math rock"". You just observer the two guitar players (Christophe Le Flohic and Jonathan Siche), the bass player (Xavier Rose), and the drummer (Bertrand James). Everything just match to perfection, like if they were living together for ever. It is solid. Their first album, ""Home Alone"", out in April 2014, is some kind of synthesis of TOTORRO. The roots of this growing tree. Its music says ""come in our rollercoaster, we're gonna have fun"". And it works! Fans of Beyoncé, fans of Sonic Youth, fans of the most specific math-rock band, everyone get caught! October 2016 will be an exciting: here is coming TOTORRO's second album: ""Come to Mexico"". Like the Chapter II of this amazing previous chapter, the band develops their fresh but heavy, technical but fun, smart but naive, music. Like a perfect lemonade under a too massive sun. Come to Mexico!
