The music

NLF3 was formed in 2000 in Paris by brothers Nicolas and Fabrice Laureau(aka Don Nino and F / Lor ), after the split of Prohibition, their former band.
In 2006, the first drummer Ludovic Morillon was replaced by Mitch Pires.
The trio plays instrumental rock, textured with electronics, halfway between movie score and psychedelic transgressions. The trio cites a host of influences in their interviews, from repetitive music to experimental rock, from the Afrobeat of Fela Kuti to the Tropicalia of Tom Zé .
