Chien Méchant are a brand new Paris-based electronic music duo. Only recently active on social medias, they’ve introduced themselves with their #DansLaNiche series – a collection of one minute short live videos filmed and recorded in their own studio.
These two high school friends give out a unique energy through their performances, melting together psychedelic rock and jazz over electronic productions. There’s a wide range of influences going from Todd Terje and Justice to Pink Floyd or Snarky Puppy. The vocals are spoken, sang and effected with lyrics both in French and English. They deliver these rich and complex compositions – often dancy sometimes trippy – wrapped under an ultra-energetic synth/drums live formula.
In September 2020 their remix of David Walter’s “Manyè” gets released on Heavenly Sweetness Records. In the meantime they fall under the radar of Paris-based electronic music label Nowadays Records.
