The History of rock is full of accidents, great destinies, anecdotes and triumphs.
When it comes to those two kids, we can say it’s been a dream journey, a great trip which already leads to a 5 years career, within a musical sphere which was not prepared for them.
This is Carbon Airways and there are a thousand reasons to get excited about it.
Engus (18) and Eléonore (19) are siblings.
In the beginning, in 2010, there was one computer. Two separate bedrooms. Engus tinkers with sounds while his sister drafts her first lyrics. It could have stopped there, but both decide to create a group based on their common passion for Ministry and Prodigy at an age where brothers and sisters usually fuss and fight. They call it Carbon Airways.
"Carbon" is the original component behind everything that is alive on the planet. “Airways” to them means the feeling of escape we get from our musical experimenting.”
A first EP is launched early in 2011 and then everything speeds up.
Theyr first concerts receive great support all over France, playing one of their first live show in the major French festivals “Les Transmusicales de Rennes” on the big stage of at Hall 9 in total excitement. The media talked a lot about their young age, a police commissioner tried to forbid them to perform…
In 2012, they have a stopover in Miami for one of the biggest electro festivals worldwide (Ultra Music Festival) where Interscope spotted them, Polydor signs them, they played in big European festivals during the end of the year.
In 2013, remarkably aged only 16 and 17, Engus and Eléonore released their third EP “Black Sun”. Tony Truand (Award for Skrillex, Foreign Beggars…) directed the video “Black Sun” and Dave Sardy (Nine Inch Nails, Rage Against the Machine…) mixed their last EP. Artistically, Carbon Airways have an insolent maturity just like their songs.
In April 2014, they released their sixth EP "You Walk Away" and performed at Coachella in USA and also in the biggest French Festivals.
Their brand new single “Break the silence” is out since the 15th of June 2015. The song is an homage to whistleblowers, who sacrifice their freedom to break the silence.
Their first album "OUTRENOIR" is still a work in progress and will be released by Polydor/Cherrytree.
