Interview with SONIC ADDICTIVE

Today, we sat down with Julie, Florian, Fabien, and Sylvian from Sonic Addictive! We talk about their start in music, fun times in the studio, and much more! Be sure to check out their social media and music below after the interview!


How did you get your start in music?

_ Julie :I started singing at 9 years old in professional conditions. Then I studied in a conservatory.

I evolved in the classic and made some scenes of operas. I have always been on stage, music is

part of my daily life because apart from being on stage solo or with Sonic Addictive, I also teach


_ Florian : As a teenager I met a friend who had a guitar, and I instantly loved to play this

instrument. But it was heavily linked to the music I was listening to at this time.

_ Fabien :At 15 years old I started the guitar, it came quite naturally, I liked it for

playability and tones.

_ Sylvain : – I started around 10 years, when I see my father playing synthesizer.


What type of music did you listen to while growing up?

_ Julie :I listened to a lot of French and international pop, classical music, then rock and metal.

_ Florian :I always liked instrumental music, when I was a kid. I began with Pat Metheny, and a lot

of classical music, Bach especially, where I trained my ears as a little game to listen to which

instrument was in each part. Later, in my teenage years, I was introduced to metal, and

symphonic metal with Rhapsody, this band particularly mix power metal and classical music and

it was an instant love for the genre and the lead guitar works of Luca Turilli, with sweep picking

especially. I definitely didn’t learn the guitar in a traditional way while playing and listening to

those things. Later I discovered other bands, like SymphonyX, Arch Enemy, Meshuggah and I love

all the classics too, especially Paul Gilbert, I learned a lot from him, and the guitar hero era with

Van Halen, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani and more recently, Buckethead, and many more.

_ Fabien :Metal, heavy, speed, death, black, symphonic etc… and sometimes after war


_ Sylvain : Pop, funk, rock, electro and a lot of cinematic music.


What are fun stories you can share while you’re in the studio recording music?

_ Julie :I have to admit that I put a little pressure on my man, Sylvain, to finish the mixes for our

EP. We spent more than 2 weeks at home locked up, without seeing anyone, to meet deadlines.

While working on “Mirror of the Unreal” I found that just before the first solo, it was a

little bit empty, I talked to Sylvain about that and I recorded some fun sounds with my guitar,

sounding like video game sounds, or whistles, if you listen carefully, you can hear it ! It was fun

stuff to do.

_ Fabien :Oh for the studio part we record everyone at home, with computers and modern

means it’s quite doable with good quality, but for the photos / videos we have a good time,

we try to be pro without arguing on the choices, and in the end we always have a good.

_ Sylvain : Have you read Julie’s answer ? … It was worst than that 😉


What is your latest song or album you can share with us?

_ Florian :Our debut EP, Welcome to Neon City, which is out of classic boundaries, and tells some

profound messages if you listen carefully to the lyrics.
