Columbine

  • France
  • Rap fatalism

Faced with a world that is falling apart, the Columbine duo keep their heads firmly on their shoulders. With a realistic and disillusioned perspective on what surrounds them, the guys from Rennes even chose a name that brings back bitter memories for American high school students, thumbing their noses at violence and despair. Enfants terribles of new-wave French rap, they scorn the codes of the genre and recount their boredom in lyrics where humour and fatalism mix. Their flow is like an ode to melancholy, to ephemeral encounters, to what makes people laugh and cry in the midst of their crumbling urban environment.
