If you go back about 8 years, what are you most proud of? What has changed and what are the biggest challenges for you in the next years?
It’s weird to think it’s been already 8 years since we decided to create WHEELFALL ! Time flies… and I think it’s what I am the most proud of : we were friends when we start the band, and even if there were some line-up changes, we still are friends, bounded by passion.

Musically, I only let myself speak, no borders, it felt natural… So much things to say, it ends up as a double album. The whole concept was already crazy, so why not haha! Now, taking a step back, I understand it is seen as a bizarre album : full of many emotions, influences, atmosphere, the length in itself, maybe not easy to listen. It was a real psychological journey to make it. Continue reading
