Black and white. Man and woman. Shy and outspoken: nothing predestined these two to meet yet they complement each other like the yin and the yang. In 2014, producer FlxshWave and singer/songwriter June Caravel decided to unite their forces to create Hypergryfs. The name came from an 'auld' shop sign at Paris Carnavalet museum where a gryffon was depicted. Part eagle, part lion, it seemed to embody perfectly the dual nature of the band.

Their video and new single Waiting for a sign is an introduction to their antagonistic universe. It invites the listener to answer the question 'Do you know who you are?' and reflects on appearances and how deceptive they can be.

As a singer and author of 3 albums in complete different genres (soul-pop, a cappella and rock'n'roll) June Caravel brings her vocal versatility and sense of formula to the duet while FlxshWave brings his voice and minimal electro beats already discovered in his recent solo singles 'Feelings' and 'Fall Leaves' that have gardnered more than 100.000 listens on Spotify. They qualify the sound of their music as minimalistic melting pop. Minimalist for the production and melting pop because all of the way all of their influences are brought together...

Waiting for a sign was released on January 3rd, 2018 as a single and other singles and videos will follow every 3rd of the month...

RED F feat. June Caravel - What you doin' to me (single dance)

En 2012 je rencontre RED F alors que nous dansons tous les deux le rock'n'roll. Il me dit qu'il fait de la musique, je lui dis que je suis chanteuse. Il m'envoie un titre instrumental ouvertement "dance" sur lequel j'ecris les paroles et que j'enregistre chez lui. Et puis il le remixe, plusieurs fois... Fast forward to 2016 !

En ecoutant l'instrumental du titre pour la premiere fois, je me dis que son cote "dance" 90's est completement a contre courant de l'electro d'aujourd'hui. Mais c'est justement ce que RED F revendique. J'ai donc force un peu ma voix pour que ca ressemble a du "Black Box" de la grande epoque ! Et puis en 2016, RED F decide de sortir le titre, enfin !
