My name is Jérémie. I was born in Nice and grew up in Nice and Antibes. When I was a child my idol was Ray Harry Hausen, because he created such beautiful and poetic monsters. When I was a teenager, I started playing in some crap punk bands. It was when I realised that music was what I lived for and decided to be part of a band.
Since then I took part in different projects. But mainly there’s been LâoH a band from Nice that in which I played for 7 years, with M83’s featuring that you can listen here : LâoH featuring M83 / Within Star Cellsand and now Loki Starfish.
One of my best gigs I played was Le Divan du Monde. It was so much fun since the show was pretty intense and it was on my birthday and gay-pride day.
One of the best gigs I have been to was the Editors at L’Olympia. I loved the whole show and the energy those guys give off.
Now I live in Paris with a roommate. In my house you can find also a cat and my refrigerator is usually full with organic food.
I enjoy being naked and do it a lot. I can spend hours doing music.
One of my favorite place to visit is Paris, because you always find secret and amazing places to aim at.
On weekdays I work on my project and on weekends I usually work on my project and try to rest sometimes.
My favorite song at the moment is In the Fall by Future Island
A film I watched lately and really liked was Ju Dou by Zhang Yimou.
The last series I watched and loved was ” In Treatment ” (years ago) .
I am very inspired by human beings and their surroundings.
I love creating intimacy with someone and hate any act of violence.
I am addicted to Art, I just can’t stop being confronted to it.
I get totally fucked up, when I drink wine. The day after, I need to eat rice and drink a lot of water.
Local Suicide reminds me of an internal suicide like an implosion or a heart that intentionally stops.
Tomorrow I will work and watch some movies. Next month I’ll be working mainly on our next album.
Next year will be the release of our next album and touring I guess. In 10 years I hope I’ve grown wiser and stronger and being way happier than today.
If I wasn’t a boy, I would be a girl.
If my life was a Hollywood movie, no one would have the main role, because we’re all part of this universe (Sounds cheesy, doesn’t it ?).
If I could have sex with anyone, it would be everyone.
If I was a car, I would be a Fuego since I don’t give a fuck about those silly objects.
If I was an animal, I would be a Maki catta or a cat.
If I was a drug I would be coffee.
If I was an invention, I would be a machine to Heal any kind of diseases.
If I was an object, I would be a Synthesiser.
I guess, if I could date myself, I would be fine with that.
If I could play with anyone it would be Wild beasts. I would like to collaborate with The Knife, or Xiu Xiu.
If I had only one wish, it would be to have 500 other wishes. I would never wish the death of someone I hate because it would make the person live longer.
