New Signing: Sense
June 18, 2018 BY Nettwerk
Nettwerk Records is excited to announce the signing of musical project and high-concept band Sense. Sense is the musical brainchild of three French engineering students – Matthieu, Paul and Marius.
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.
“There Goes My Heart (feat. Holmsey & Rory McKenna)” is the latest track from a forthcoming Taste EP (details TBA), where each song describes one of 5 well-known tastes – bitter, sour, sweet, salty, and umami. 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.
“’There Goes My Heart’ is one of the collaborations we feel most proud of. It shows what new technologies have brought to artists – to be able to compose in 3 different countries at one time with a bunch of different styles,” says Paul. “’There Goes My Heart’ channels two universes, the bittersweet mellow sounds of ‘Last Cigarette’ and the electronic vocals of ‘All Mine,’” adds Marius.
Out today, the track features production from Aussie newcomer Holmsey (aka Mitch Holmes) and singer-songwriter Rory McKenna to create a bright, chilled out, romantic summer track.
“Holmsey introduced us to his pal Rory. Rory is incredible! The day after we had sent him our project he delivered four different vocal overlays on the song. We had everything. We all gathered in France to mix and master the song,” says Matthieu.
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. In the coming weeks, there are two shows, including one in Montpellier, France on June 22 and a set at Bastille Day in New York City on July 17 at 4PM on the outdoor stage set up at 61st and Park Avenue.
Stay tuned in the coming days for more information.
