NOVEMBER is formed by Bernard Trontin, drummer with The Young Gods and film soundtrack composer and Simon Huw Jones, singer and lyricist of And Also the Trees.
The group NOVEMBER was created in Geneva where Bernard Trontin, a Frenchman but lifelong resident of the Swiss city met Simon Jones shortly after he moved there from England in the early 2000’s. An initial idea of Jones recording a vocal for a single track on an album of Trontin’s music quickly changed as it became clear that when combined, their unusual musical talents created a unique and powerful chemistry.
Their sound is without a doubt unique. At their latest album, November 2nd, you hear landscapes… stark minimalism is followed by atmospheric ballads, occasionally showing glimpses of ‘And also the trees’ here and ‘The young Gods’ there but always keeping the separate identity and originality that is November.
