Amy Winehouse's "Rehab" (video)
For the new year, we had decided with Cloud that all donations made on Twitch/Streamlabs would finance the recording of a new video for our Youtube channel. The goal is feeding it and having new content to offer you that shows all our music styles! Until now we had compiled a lot of folk and rather "calm" songs. So we worked together to choose one of our dynamic interpretations!
The first donation goal ("video #1" tab) was successful in mid-April. It took us six days from mid-April to the end of May to decide on the arrangement, test patterns and melodies, record our instruments, edit, mix, master our version of "Rehab" composed by Amy Winehouse. [For those who missed our posts on the different stages, we invite you to see (again) our Instagram stories]
We started with a live version in the same way as our previous videos, and then our sound engineer Alex Haïkine (alias Tritok) suggested arrangements to us. In addition to the guitar, the two voices, the bodhràn, you will also hear small percussions, 60s typed keyboards, and a lot of automations, stereo effects.
Check our first trailer about our recording session:
The 44 people who participated in this first donation goal received an email with the download link. Thanks again to them for their support and trust. We hope you enjoy this arrangement!

The goal of these studio clips is to find a different shooting location for each session. For this first video, we wanted a public place, with space, which we like and whose setting could allow us to position ourselves in different places in order to multiply the points of view.
We met at 10 a.m. on Monday June 20, a day when we were sure not to bother the barmaid of the day too much (hello Justine!), nor the customers. We settled in quietly, starting by making the keyboard plans with Alex Haïkine. Don't be surprised to never see his face on screen (or in photos). Our sound engineer, friend and pianist, doesn't like being in front of the stage. We have therefore respected his wish and you will only see his hands ♥. Then there were lots of duo shots all over the floor (nothing was shot in the vault), then the guitar and the bodhran. We had a lot of fun on certain passages: a few customers had the scoop to see us perform the song in fast and slow motion for video effects of a few seconds. You will have the opportunity to share your favorite moments with us under the final video on Youtube! Aalehx always has surprising ideas which in the end have their little effect!
We warmly thank Franck Ansalone for allowing us to shoot in his pretty and iconic café on Place Jeanne d'Arc in Metz (if you're sightseeing here, take full advantage of this place which is a little corner of paradise with its fountain, its church, its protective trees, its vegan restaurant, its bakery, its Trinitaires and of course its café terrace - maybe you'll even be entitled to a concert if you're lucky).
Thanks again Justine who was not too upset by our rehearsals for "Rehab" until her end of service at 4 p.m.
Join us this SATURDAY July 16 at 8:45 p.m CET for a musical live Twitch then at 10:30 p.m CET on Youtube for the broadcast of the clip, of which we will share a few more anecdotes.
