London / Paris / Toulouse based indie-pop, disco-punk band WE-ARE-Z comprise of English producer Marc Arciero, and French multi-instrumentalists Gabriel Cazes and Clement Leguidcoq, guitarist Drew Wynen and last but certainly not least Guillaume Charreau on drums.
A self-contained unit who write and perform our own material, and produce it in our studio in south-west London, WE-ARE thrilling new purveyors of quirkily rhythmic indie-pop with an askew lyrical slant. They sing songs about plastic surgery, drug ODs and auto-destruction.
WE formed in 2012, their songs are idiosyncratic yet accessible, largely observational, and wholly rhythmic and melodic. “Falling” tells of “late-night chaos” in British Cities and “Easy” recalls the time they were all simultaneously travelling the globe: Gabby in America, Archie in the former Soviet Union and Clement in Mongolia.
WE-ARE described as “alternative indie pop that you could file next to bands like Vampire Weekend”. Melody is key. Additional influences include movies, and biographies “of people who have lived extraordinary lives and existed on the fringes of what’s considered normal”.
WE-ARE-Z – destined to cause a stir with deceptively infectious guitar-based pop.
