Interview: Ramène Ta Chaise

We enjoyed listening to your song “Laisser libre”. What is the story behind the song and how did you create/write it? Also, what inspired the song title?
[English] – Leave free: This song expresses the pleasant feeling of being close to someone, of sharing a bond with a friend like no other, in an authentic and privileged relationship, with whom we feel a particular feeling that thrills and gives meaning to the life . Then one day we take the slap to realize that there is still a part of mystery in this other, which does not belong to us, that this friend cannot say everything, remains secret on certain subjects and we realize that he is not the one we thought he was. The disappointment is great and letting go seems obvious. As I let my fingers go on the strings, these words echo in my head: “I must let him free”.

[Francais] – Laisser libre: Cette chanson exprime la sensation si agréable d’ être proche de quelqu’un, de partager une complicité avec un ami pas comme les autres, dans une relation authentique et privilégiée, avec qui on ressent un feeling particulier qui fait vibrer et donne sens à la vie . Puis un jour on se prend la claque de se rendre compte qu’ il reste une part de mystère  dans cet autre, qui ne nous appartient pas, que cet ami ne peut pas tout dire, reste secret sur certains sujets et on s aperçoit qu’ il n est pas celui qu’on croyait. La déception est grande et le lâcher prise sonne comme une évidence. En laissant aller mes doigts sur les cordes, ces mots résonnent dans ma tête: « Il faut que je le laisse libre » .

If you had to describe your sound, how would you do so? Furthermore, what artists (or other sources) do you cite as influences?
[English] – Our sound has been tinted through years of rock and folk influences, fuelled by the personal universe of each musician, which has created the varied musicality of our songs. Our Influences: Noir Desire, U2, Jean Louis Aubert, Oasis, Goldman, Chris Cagle, Dire Straits

[Francais] – Notre son s’ est teinté à travers les années d’influences rock et folk, alimenté par l’ univers personnel de chaque musicien, ce qui à crée la musicalité variée de nos chansons. Nos Influences: Noir désir, U2, Jean Louis Aubert, Oasis , Goldman, Chris cagle, Dire Straits.


What have been career highlights so far? And what is on your bucket list that you’d want to achieve?
[English] – Highlights: our first time in the studio; the shooting of our video “Foutu rêve“; our first festival ( St Jean Rock 2015 in Switzerland).
Wishes for the future: come and play in England; have red m and m’s in the boxes; create other songs and save them for a 2nd album; make a 2nd clip to let us know. 

[Francais] – Faits marquants: notre premiere fois en studio; le tournage de notre clip “Foutu rêve“; notre premier festival (St Jean Rock 2015 en Suisse).
Souhaits pour le futur: venir jouer en Angleterre; créer d’ autres chansons et les enregistrer pour un 2 eme album Faire un 2eme clip pour nous faire connaître; avoir des m et m’s rouge dans les loges.

If you could be the main support for any living artist, who would that be for and why? Alternatively, what would be your dream live booking?
[English] – In our dreams, we would like to meet as many musicians and singers as we have influences, that is to say a multitude, because we have very different interests among the members of the group, even if the French rock in general brings us closer.

If I had to name one, it would be Chris Cagle for his frenzied rhythms, as well as his beautiful walks with country chords and the sound of his suave voice, but also Noël Gallagher for his diminished chords in his harmonious but also offbeat melodies.

[Francais] – Dans nos rêves, on souhaiterait rencontrer autant de musiciens et chanteurs qu’ on a d’ influences , c’ est- à -dire une multitude, car nous avons des intérêts très différents parmi les membres du groupe,même si le rock français en général nous rapproche. 

Si je devais en citer un , ce serait Chris Cagle pour ses rythmes endiablés, ainsi que ses belles balades aux accords country et au son de sa voix suave, mais également Noël Gallagher pour ses accords diminués dans ses mélodies harmonieuses mais également décalées . 


What artists have you been listening to? Additionally, who should others be listening to?
[English] – Some of the artists we listen to and who inspire us include Noël Gallagher, Téléphone, Eiffel, U2, James Brown, and many more.

[Francais] – Parmi les artistes que nous écoutons et qui nous inspirent, on citera Noël Gallagher, Téléphone, Eiffel, U2, James Brown, et plein d’autres encore.
