Take a singer with a jazz background, a guitarist who's a fan of California punk and a drummer who has a sense of rock and groove, mix it all together and you get The Gelateens. The band mixes a lot of ingredients to give another content to its sound: funky punk. If funk had some connections with rock in the 90's (FFF for example), it hasn't had a media aura since then, except maybe with Skip The Use who sometimes lean towards this fusion. Even rarer is the funky punk. If at first glance the styles are opposed, they at least have in common a communicative energy.

With a team with such varied influences that seem irreconcilable, the band proposes "Funky Punk DanSe Machine". If the name may remind us of some TV music shows, we are far from this sound mush. Here no industrial music but rather something organic with a live and immersive sound.

If 'Don't Call Me Maybe' is classically adorned with rather direct dancing finery, the fusion is more powerful in 'Dance Mf' with a very festive punk rock first part and an aggressive guitar that introduces a second more electronic movement with numerous beats where Sofy screams in an exhilarating way. The songs seems all thought for the concert. 'You Treat Me Wrong' is a good exemple with its lyrics and the sensation that we are attending a live performance. Moreover, the vocals fit perfectly with a music that can be charming and evolutionary as in the very Doors-like 'Slamming Doors' which offers some nice percussions close to Toto and vintage keyboards parts that sometimes draw from the classical (Bach's Toccata) to bring even more relief to the whole.

With 'The Funky Punk DanSe Machine', The Gelateens fully fulfills its objectives. Their sound is quite singular and seems natural. Released in the middle of autumn when the cold weather is coming, this opus will bring a welcome warmth thanks to its communicative energy and festive atmosphere.
