Description

Grand Veymont are Josselin Varengo - Organ, synthesizer, percussion, vocals B?atrice Morel Journel - Organ, chant, flute, vocals. Heading south from Lyon in south-eastern France, an awe-inspiring massif of jagged limestone looms into view. Framed perfectly by the resplendent snowcapped Alps in the distance, the Vercors Regional Nature Park is an area of exceptional beauty. Grand Veymont is the highest peak of the Vercors Massif from which B?atrice and Josselin take both their inspiration and name. Resident and natives of the Vercors, everything is often a question of territory, the one where we are born, the one we live in, the one we leave, the one we cross, the one we see or the one we desire. Grand Veymont have been exploring these themes since forming in 2016. The mountain's fertile terrain and imposing mass has impressed itself upon the imagination through what they describe as "krautrock de salon", a hypnotic medieval soundscape born of restless musical spirits. As free as the swirling wind of the Vercors Massif and as intriguing and playful as a young Marmot. Much like their ancestral landscape they deserve further exploration. They are very much a product of their environment. The duo are also currently one-third of Gloria (Ample Play, UK & Howling Banana, Fr), having played together in Tara King TH whilst still performing separately with Slow Joe & The Ginger Accident and Baby B. They have also recorded with Deborah Kant and Aquaserge.
