Harvey And The Moon (E106) talks about music in France and their nearest plans

About: Harvey And The Moon

Harvey And The Moon: indie band from Paris, France played in E106 of ArenaCast

Harvey and The Moon cleverly create their musical canvas, giving it an extraordinary depth of color, based on great lyrics, deep musical landscapes and conceptuality.

1. How do you see yourself in 5 years? What is your main goal as a band?
As many bands wish, our main goal is to make a living with music. We already know that what we are currently doing is not what the French market expects and that is why we are more and more turning to the international scene. In 5 years, we imagine to be signed in a german or english label (let's dream!) and most of all, perform all around Europe, at least.

2. Can you name some peculiarities that define the music scene in your town/country?
Music industry in France is quite confused at the moment... There are two schools: the traditional "pop" songs, performed in french by young and beautiful boys and girls, the kind of easy-listening, insipid music. And on the other side, you can find bands and singers who try to reinvent the electro and rock scene and aren't afraid to express themselves in English. They now succeed because they didn't get scared of being against the fashion. But unfortunately, they are a few...

3. What do you think of episode 106? Which of the other featured songs do you like the most?
Great episode 106. We liked Dixon Did It, their energy, their freshness. And also The Interstellar Graffiti Artists, definitely, this mix between rap, rock and funk (RHCP style) that gives you a smile while listening to it! Way different from us, but we like diversity!

4. Is there a story behind your song "The Same Air"?
To sum up, "The same air" tells the story of a guy and a girl who love each other, but who know that their love is a dead end. Quite optimistic, isn't it?

5. Please share your nearest plans. What are you currently working on?
We are currently working on brand new EPs which should be released in May (hope sooo). We first focus on our visibility on the Internet, with new songs and videos to share. If you go to our Facebook page, for example, we've just posted a video that illustrates one of our songs, "Excess". Then we plan to have some gigs in September, in Paris and suburbs, and hope to move abroad in 2013.
