Engus and Eleonore, who are brother and sister, aged 16 and 17 respectively, display their talent in dense atmospheres, dark and intense with an electro sensibility.
Students at the Conservatory for 7 years (violin and cello), they understood quickly how to play as a duet. They gradually completed their practice instruments electric guitar and bass. The need to register and schedule different instruments to create their own sound , led to their appreciation of digital composition .
The choice of name? “Carbon is the origin of all living things on the planet. And high pressure carbon crystallizes to form Diamond is the hardest material to scratch that is used to listen to vinyl. The airways, the airways, it is for us escapes that provide our musical experimentation. ”
Blacksun their last EP was released on October 21, including a remix by Dave Sardy (Nine Inch Nails, Rage Against the Machine …).

My name is Engus, I was born in Lyon and grew up in the countryside. When I was a child my idol was my Daddy, because he yelled louder than me. When I was at school, I started to chase girls. It was then that I realized that my dogs made better friends and decided to play music. Since then I sleep a lot.
One of the best gigs I played was Ultra Music Festival @ Miami. It was so much fun to play in front of palms and buildings. One of the best gigs I have been to was Optimus Alive @ Lisboa. I loved the War Paint gig.
Now I live in Besançon with my family. In my house you can find strange smells and my refrigerator is usually full with fresh songs. I enjoy taking showers and playing with my (girl)room-neighbor a lot. I can spend hours playing Xbox.
On weekdays I go to school and on weekends I usually play at festivals.
My favorite song at the moment is Takyon/Death Grips. A film I watched recently and really liked was ‘No country for old men’.
The last series I watched and loved was ‘Breaking Bad’. I am very inspired by Milk shakes. I love Tortellini and hate coffee.
I am addicted to OREO cookies, I just cannot stop opening another package.
I get totally fucked up, when I forget to type “Ctrl + S”. The next day I need to start my track over again.
Local Suicide reminds me to do my homework ^^.
Tomorrow I play at Nyon / CH. Next month my (girl) room-neighbor moves out. Next year I pass my exam. In 10 years I hope to pass my exams.
If my life were a Hollywood movie, Joe Pesci would have the main role, because “OK! OK!”. If I could have sex with anyone, it would be “Fun”. If I were a car, I would be a 1969 Firebird Pontiac. If I were an animal, I would be a Pig. If I were a drug I would be Terranova’s “Equal rights” song. If I were an invention, I would be a “pleasure machine”. If I were an object, I would be a something scratchy.
If I could play music with anyone it would be with The Chemical Brothers. I would like to collaborate with Liam Howlett/The Prodigy.
If I had only one wish, it would be not enough.
I would never forget my keys, because it’s cold outside where we live.
My words of advice to the reader would be to make your life a fucking great experience!
Watch the excellent clip of “Black sun“, directed by Tony T in a very dark style with a dose of science fiction perfectly tuned to the frantic and epilectic rhythms.
