New album “Dream Boat Jane”   - 11/02/2022

Forget the guns, this Gun is for Gunnar, Gunnar Ellwanger. Born in England, with German parents, he grew up in the Paris region after a childhood on the other side of the Rhine: and here is a trilingual with a Scandinavian name.

Like a symbol of the mix of cultures that feeds Gunwood's identity. Wood" is wood, the tree, its buried roots and its conquering branches, like the paths of life that merge and separate, crack and grow again. What's the point of choosing between folk poetry and rock power, between seventies freedom and nineties sharpness, between Irish harmonies and American reliefs, when you can intertwine everything and create new cuttings?

Gunnar Ellwanger (vocals, guitar), Jeff Preto (bass, vocals), David Jarry Lacombe (drums, vocals): Gunwood's sap has been distilled by the three of them since the first steps of a band which, in the wake of 2010's bewitchers such as Alabama Shakes, Feist or the Black Keys, is today a chiseller of striking vibrations. After the flurry of praise and concerts that logically followed the release of the striking "Traveling Soul" in 2017, the trio is back with a second album masterfully crafted with Jean Lamoot (Noir Désir, Alain Bashung...). 2022 only has to let itself be guided by the thrilling aura of "Dream Boat Jane".
