Cédric Steinmyller and Edgar Catry make up the duo behind the French electronic outfit Klingande that is quite an innovative music group. In 2012, the band formed as a deep house outfit. The twosome was in their mid-twenties and both shared an interest in Swedish House Mafia, which has inspired much of the band's sound. In many cases, the band's music has been referred to as melodic house. The unique style has been helping the band to create fans from all over the world through a significant online following.
The band released its first single, "Punga" in 2013 with "Jubel" following not long behind. It was this year that Klingande was first on European charts. The band is presently represented by Steinmyller and is scheduled to release a number of singles. The success of the 2013 releases set the stage for great ones to follow. As it turns out, Steinmyller and Catry are set at learning as much as they can when it comes to music and forging their own paths. Steinmyller focused on learning music theory and has been involved in electronic music since his early days of a teenager. He started a career as a DJ and starting putting together original pieces. During this time, Catry focused on the piano, which he has been playing since the tender age of four. Together, Steinmyller and Catry are quite an impressive twosome.
The formation of Klingande was in the stars once Steinmyller came back to London and the two started to work together. The twosome first learned of one another's interest in the same electronic artists, like Nico, Push and Bakermat, and music and the rest has become history with a bright future ahead. The inception of Klingande was a smart choice for the musicians. The name of the band was taken from a Swedish dictionary and it is closely translated to "ringing" or "tinkling." The twosome decided to name each one of the band's tracks in Swedish because they like the sound when spoken and sung. They equally like the Swedish house performer, Avicii.
The band has spent a lot of time touring in Europe and is soon to have more shows in North America to appease its growing audience there. Steinmyller does most of the work from his studio in Lille, France and is working on additional hits to add to the EP.
Klingande Previous Hits
The band has not been around for long, but has rose to great heights in a short amount of time since 2013. It was that same year that the songs, "Punga" and "Jubel" captured the attention of audiences and helped to branch the reach of the band to other countries in Europe and overseas. In "Punga," the twosome decided to use saxophone--an instrument that the two both now enjoy. The band made it on the French chart by ranking at 86. It was quite impressive since it was a self-released single. It also reached the charts in Belgium.
As mentioned, the song "Jubel," meaning joy in Swedish, quickly followed with similar steam. It became a huge hit and topped the charts in Czech Republic, Austria, Germany, Italy and Poland. It was not surprising that success came in both the UK and in Sweden, as well as in their native country of France. Once the fans got a taste for Klingande, the band did not stop growing.
It is interesting to learn that Edgar Catry and Cédric Steinmyller met one another while attending school in Croix, France at the age of ten. The two followed musical paths before decided to form Klingande, which has proven to be a fantastic plan. During an interview, attempted to explain why the band was so popular, "I don't know why people like it so much. Maybe because it's a mix of deep and pop music, and pop music is so commercial. But I don't categorize myself as tropical house. I'd say I'm more melodic house. I don't think I'm that tropical." While the band is unclear, the fans and critics know that they love it and that it is a worthwhile concert experience.
