I Don’t Speak French started as the artistic outlet of a young producer from the south of Sweden but with addition of friends and musicians it quickly grew into a creative community. “We see each other as one big family, we are all friends and always have a great time together. It doesn’t matter if it’s inside the rehearsal space, in the studio or just hanging out having a beer”.
“Plastic people made out of rubber and glue.”
The bands lyrics often center around worldly subjects and questions, although the music doesn’t always necessarily sound as serious as the lyrics sometimes are. “We put a great deal of effort into the lyrics actually meaning something and having a connection to a real life. It can be something that pisses us off about the world, or just something in our ordinary lives that is fun or hard to deal with”.
The band is not afraid of experimenting with new sounds and take inspiration from a multitude of areas, though this makes the music a bit harder to describe. “I guess it’s mostly my fault since I’m so restless and always looking for new ideas and sounds. I just don’t want us to be one of those bands where all the songs on the album sounds the same. I want the listener to go through a journey, with lots of ups and downs”.
The past year the band have been busy recording their debut album and have so far released two singles, one with the help of the record label 100 Songs, and one through their own label. They are planing on releasing their debut album early next year.“For the time being, we are just focusing on getting the album mastered, the artwork set and making sure the album gets out as soon as possible. Then we can start working on the next one, haha”.
