bio / about

Spleen XXX was born in 2015 from the meeting of Stéphane G. (bass, guitar, music) and Isthmaël B. (vocals, photography and videos). The original duet  is now trio for the lives with the integration of Hugo D. on the bass guitar….
Their passions for dark and alternative music take roots far back in times, they both played in many bands and released several records under different projects:
Isthmael sang in Love in cage, compose in Morphoex and Stéphane G. (founder of Mhönos) also play bass guitar in Rosa Crux and makes sigh his solo project N.K.R.T
Suinting the love relationship between the two musicians and their mystic hometown and fatal accomplice, Rouen, split city between a gothic and bourgeois right shore, and an industrial, poor and cosmopolitan left shore. Post punk music stands up against the weirdness of gregarious life, the discomfort of a painful existence. Against this anguish, only one way to conquer evil left : the “spleen”, idealistic alliance between semantics and music, inviting the listener to travel to a dreamlike world.
« Now comes the eve, when on its stem vibrates
Each flower, evaporating like a censer; »  (Charles Baudelaire)
Spleen XXX offers with his first album “Poems of Charles Baudelaire” a posthumous tribute to “Spleen and ideal” to the “new thrill” that this explicitly erotic and provocative collection brings to literature.
