I kind of love Switzerland. Three of many reasons: 1. The Swiss paper money is so colourful that you’re almost happily paying the equivalent of 25 EUR for a short taxi ride or 6 EUR for a supermarket sandwich.
2. Plus when a Swiss person has a messy apartment, they call it a “hurepuff” and that is my favourite expression, ever.
3. Also, We Invented Paris make nice music.
Country: Switzerland We Invented Paris are playing at Waves Vienna 2014 on 3 October.
Do you remember when, during the Garish slot at the very first Popfest in 2010, suddenly the electricity failed and the band just went on and sang from the top of their lungs so that people all the way in the back could still hear them? It was magical, and shortly thereafter I took my first baby steps in the local music scene and I will forever link this band to that very exciting time.
I’m completely blanking on this voice. It is VERY similar to a voice I know (and that you and your grandma know too) but I simply cannot put my finger on it. Anyway, it’s a voice we’ve heard a million times before and the music also isn’t the most original, but together they work quite well, so I’m just going to try to not wreck my brain too much about forgetting that damn name.
