Formed back in 2015 and releasing two critically acclaimed tracks in the name of “Swim” and closely followed in 2016 by “Faint” (both tracks you can listen in the PASSPORT section further down). BEFFROI is an up-and-coming electronic duo with clear cut ambitions. Rori (aka Camille) and Valentin both in their early twenties and from the little town of Hannut in Belgium and deliver sharply produced tracks with moody vocals and modern beats inviting the listener into an introspective trip akin to the style of Portishead. BEFFROI managed to get beneath flaws, weaknesses and addictions of the human being to paint a sometimes dark picture in their newest single “Jade”. Another slice of raw teenage existentialism you really need to wrap your head around.
Speaking about the track Rori said:
When Val first sent me Jade’s instrumental, I was driving by one of those red-light districts Belgium is famous for. Watching all those lonely souls interacting in hopes of finding instant satisfaction got me inspired. I then came up with those lyrics about this guy feeling numb & empty; desperately seeking answers about love & feeling mechanisms. The only time he finds closure is when he enters the ‘Jade’, but it never last long.
