SPB: What prompted you to choose a black cape as a sartorial statement and a band name?
CN: Cape Noire came out of me one day as it is. The black cape is not a garment, it’s a character in itself. We don’t really know who is under the cape: a man, a woman, or dozens of lost souls. When it was born, on that day I was really down, it came out of my belly, then stood in front of me, and I knew I could follow it, everything would be fine from this moment. We started to compose...
The music is aerial and passionate, the sounds are pure but all seems to come from a “beyond the grave” festival. The voice takes you into imaginary lands and forsake you on a bridge between sweetness and your darkest thoughts. I named it Cape Noire because it’s simply what it is.
