It’s in the heart of 2018’s summer, settled the youth cultural center of their hometown, that Margot, Théo and Eliott start composing what will become Funtastic.
Soon the atmosphere surrounding them modeled a made-to-measure environment full of vivid colors and all kind gym mats. A welcome return to roots which gave them confidence to emerge from the usual bass, guitar, drum pattern. Tinged by summer softness, the first songs of this session will soon confront new life experiences.
Relatives loss and personal issues led to major changes for the band members. It all resulted in a simple need : look to the future. Funtastic name symbolize their search for a new horizon charged with nostalgia, bittersweet recklessness and positivity.
In 33 minutes, Funtastic brings pop songs into experimental playgrounds, rock songs into electronic and offers synth pop lullabies breaks. On this album, Tapeworms convey forgotten self promises, inner demons, face challenges and bet on luminous outcomes.
