WYVE is Paris-based trio consisting of vocalist Maxime Toussaint, guitarist Michaël Dietrich and drummer Thomas Negroni.
Their first album, Birth, was conceptualised while the band was a duo and showed them in a much darker light. Shortly after their debut, Thomas Negroni joined the band and conjunctively decided to reshape the entire project. After nearly 70 songs, a tonne of plugins and a couple of classic keys (Moog 37, Prophet 6) they felt their love for retro, 80's aesthetic was complete and they filed them under the concept Fictiopolis. The album was tracked at the famous "La Frette Studio", a small mansion north of Paris, that welcomed the Arctic Monkeys for their latest album, among many others.
The trio's sound draws inspiration from 80's pop culture, movies and general aesthetic without losing sight of the modern rhythmic patterns and current electronic arrangements. They name as inspiration music as diverse as Imagine Dragons, M38 and their fellow country men, Daft Punk while also taking cues from the indie pop, and Synth/Retrowave worlds.
After a couple of singles they are ready to share their second album with the world and have chosen Aztec as their music team.
