Like many other groups on the scene, Masquer's brand of pop music is a throwback to the eighties, producing both a nostalgic and bizarre kind of sound. We met the duo after they played the Divan du Monde venue in northern Paris during the Les femmes s’en mêlent festival in March, as part of our new 'gonzo journalism' series comprising a flip camera, piece of paper and hard hat. Having just watched the classic French film La Cité de la peur, our gonzo journalist sees to it to ask the band questions related to a movie about serial killers that they've probably never seen...  meanwhile on their own page, the band reacted: 'We did an odd but fun web interview for cafebabel.com where we had to act out some scenes from a French movie' (Image: © Victor Tarre)
