GINA ÉTÉ – Poetic Post Pop
Gina Été's celes,al voice surrounded by poetic Underground Music carries you into a hidden sphere where the singer‘s honest words, the chaotic force of her band and our minds graze. For the duration of a concert, you will lose track of yourself.

Jeremie Revel - vocals, guitar
Phillip Klawitter - double bass
Noé Franklé - drums
Illuminated by a blueish spotlight, Gina Été leans back from her piano and smiles into the otherwise dark room. As if a summer breeze had rustled through the autumn foliage, her celestial voice had scattered the lightness of being into melancholic memories of the audience‘s own past. Lost in thought, they remember the custom of clapping after a song. She whispers the next title into the microphone, but only starts to play as the sound of clapping hands is fraying into a second of silence. Compared to the singer‘s last single „Seriously“ - absurd image of a dispute nearly bursting into anger - Gina Été‘s coming EP „hourglass“ seems to be a timeless journey through existence itself. The poetic post pop artist is inconspicuously weaving her mind around our heads to make us drift in a bubble full of question marks through the universe of Radiohead, then alongside Tom Waits‘ garden fence. Through the Rhein we float back home just to finally crash into Sophie Hungers ironic immediacy and burst in a big bang.
In November 2014 the Zurich-born Gina Été began her solo career. Applying different languages and accompanying herself with piano and guitar-like used viola, she is fabricating a new story with every song. By now the young musician is not only performing alone but also with a band. The three Frenchmen Jeremie Revel on guitar, Phillip Klawitter on double bass, and Noé Franklé on drums color Gina's melancholic style with their chaotic power. Together they recorded the EP „moonchild“, released the charmingly irritating music video to their single „Seriously“ and are now working together towards the release tour of their EP „hourglass“, coming on the 17th of january. Another music video will follow in spring - ideas for her debut album are already flashing through Gina‘s mind. After all, Gina and her band would love to play and be played all around the globe.
However, success is only secondary for idealist Gina: ‘I want everyone who comes to my concerts to feel involved. My music should lead them to ponder over what I say, how I make them feel, what they would answer to me, or maybe initiate something else entirely.’ Again, she smiles and turns back to face her piano.
