Lunatic Toys

power trio

– Presentation

The power trio acoustic Lunatic Toys vocabulary is based on pop and rock and weaves improvisations fueled by jazz culture with themes that are poetic, funny and dark at once. Their compositions leave an open space for a great freedom of expression for three musicians, sound is key to this trio committed to creating rich textures and contrasting acoustic climats. Lunatic Toys invites its frenetic keyboards, hypnotic sax and apocalyptic drums in an orgy of pulsating rock, harmonic & progressive trames & trance jazz. a group that throws scores to the wind to serve us songs without words, touched with hazy melodies and shaken rhythms. «an expressive music, not complicated, singing, playful but not sweetened. Rock music but acoustic, music written but improvised, perhaps the definition of punk-pop-jazz »
