Cheveu, a trio, started in Paris, during an especially warm and boring summer in the mid 00's around a cheap casio, a broken mic and a wooden guitar.Their will is to make loud rock with these. In 2006, the French band released its first 7' “DOG” on SS records (Sacramento) then cross the ocean...they played at the Gonerfest in Memphis with the likes of Jay Reatard or Jack Oblivian in the middle of their first US tour (3 more will follow) after only a handful of shows in France. The french trio played then with Pink reason, Intelligence, Times new viking, Animal collective, King khan & bbq etc... They toured in the US (2007) & in Europe (2009) with Tyvek, and in Europe with the Black lips (2008).They shared the stage with the Slits in Sxsw in 2008 and played at the Ps1 in 2009. More 7' are released on US and european labels (SS rob's house, permanent records) Cheveu released its first LP in 2008 on Born Bad records in Europe & SS records in the US which lead to great reviews on Pitchfork, Cokeglow machine, Dusted and numerous blogs... Their sound is linked with the Country teasers or The Intelligence, because of their post-punk, noisy pop sound, their use of drum machines, with maybe the addition of a psychedelic approach. Kind of noisy-minimalist on record, Cheveu « maximize » its sound on stage, dilatating and reinforcing their songs. After playing on big stages in France (Rock en seine, Printemps de Bourges), they toured in Israel in 2010, where they recorded string arrangements for their upcoming album. The record can be defined as Post-Punk meets Weirdo-Electro-Pop meets primitive Garage-Rock, or as the label has put it nicely: "Think SUICIDE meet RUN DMC meet VIVALDI"
