Hectic drum grooves + bouncy Moog + distorted guitar + crystal voice = .▲
Two Belgians, one Hungarian and a Luxembourgish. Four musicians enjoying the exploration of a psychedelic blend of rock and trip-hop. At the crossroads of Radiohead, Damon Albarn, Modeselektor, Portishead and Miles Davis.
The lyrics look very much like short stories. They are rooted in a more and more oppressive yet hopeful reality.
Next.Ape have shaped their sound : a slamming snare drum, a deep bass on the Moog, a distorted guitar, some keyboards and of course a clear and charismatic voice.
The groove is hectic and incisive. Improvisations give you goosebumps. It is impossible to remain static or indifferent. Their music takes you.
