French Trio Sense To Release ‘Taste’ EP On October 19; Listen To “I Like It”
July 13, 2018 BY Nettwerk
Sense is the musical brainchild of three French engineering students – Matthieu, Paul and Marius. On October 19, Sense will release their Nettwerk debut EP Taste, a musical project where each song describes one of the 5 well-known tastes – bitter, sour, sweet, salty and umami.
Last month, the band shared “There Goes My Heart (feat. Holmsey & Rory McKenna).” Similar to the hard to describe flavor of umami, “There Goes My Heart” is about a main character that doesn’t know where to settle and is lost in a relationship. Today, the band shares the latest track from the EP, “I Like It” featuring vocals from Jona Selle. The song is about a relationship that will sour yet both people choose to stay together despite the troubles.
Other songs on the EP include “Taste” (salty), “First Time” (bitter) and “All Mine (feat. Eleven)” (sweet). The EP was recorded, played, mixed and mastered by Sense in Lyon (FR), Paris (FR), Rennes (FR), New York and Philadelphia.
The concept behind the name and music is based on the 5 human senses: taste, touch, smell, sight and hearing. 2017’s debut EP Esper (Extra-sensorial perception), served as an introduction, with each song embodying a different sense. Since 2017, the band has released two viral tracks – “Last Cigarette” and “All Mine” – that have 8 million+ combined streams on Spotify and Youtube. The band aims to have each following EP focus on a specific sense and emulate its characteristics.
Matthieu, Paul and Marius each perform live sets in their home cities (Lyon, Paris and New York). Each member performs their interpretation of the song via differing instrumentation and/or visuals, giving each listener a unique experience. On July 15, Marius will perform a set as part of Bastille Day in New York City at 3:45PM on the outdoor stage set up at 60th and Park Avenue.
