A VOID are a self-styled 3 piece rock band based in London, UK. Two parts Parisian, one part Londonian, they fuse the spirit of sonic grunge to a DIY punk aesthetic fueled by Boursin Cheese and pickle juice. Influences include Sonic Youth, Hole, Deftones, Bjork, Daniel Balavoine, Charles Aznavour. Formed in Paris by singer/guitarist Camille Alexander in 2015, the band unleashed their first EP, Roses As Insides, in June 2016, before cannibalistic tendencies got the better of original drummer Roman Zaborski and bassist Robin Dickinson. Camille quickly enlisted the hard- hitting drumming skills and harmonious vocals of Marie Niemiec, before they sought exile in London. The band gigged as a two-piece until they discovered their bassist, Aaron Hartmann, lurking on a park bench.
The band independently birthed their debut full-length album, Awkward And Devastated, in November 2018, and celebrated by performing dual album release gigs at The Windmill in Brixton and Supersonic in Paris.
In March 2019, A VOID were the only band that featured female musicians to be shortlisted from 300 applications for the Northern Exposure/INmusic Festival contest, and were invited to perform in the final at the legendary Cavern Club in Liverpool. The previous year’s winner were False Heads.
The band self-released their second album Dissociation in September 2022, from which they released five singles: Sad Events Reoccur, Stepping On Snails, Newspapers, 5102 and Sick As A Dog. Each of these singles comes along with a music video with unique sets carefully imagined and crafted by the band themselves, directed and edited by frontwoman Camille Alexander, featuring paper planes, snails crawling on their faces, and piles of newspapers. Stepping On Snails received over 46 000 plays on Spotify since its release in August 2021 and Newspapers, 39 000 since April 2022. Both track have been featured in major Spotify editorial playlists such as All New Rock, Smells Like Stream Spirit, Volume France and Post-Grunge Appreciation. Three of the singles from Dissociation have received national radio plays on Ouï FM (France), Radio X (UK) and Radio FM4 (Austria).
The band celebrated the release of this second album with a packed show at the Shacklewell Arms which they organized themselves, and a live showcase and signing of their 12” vinyl (distributed by Punk Fox Records via Rough Trade) at Rough Trade East.
Dissociation was created during 2020-21 lockdown, recorded, mixed and mastered by Jason Wilson whose production credits include You Me At Six, Don Broco, Dinosaur Pile-up and Reuben.
A VOID consistently play incendiary shows across their native Paris and adopted home city of London, and frequently spread their chaos further afield to towns and cities such as Brighton, Bristol, Nottingham, Portsmouth, Leeds, Southampton and more! The band are available for gig bookings, birthday celebrations, wedding receptions, fromage shop openings and any event requiring a heavy dose of “buzz-saw grunge pop that combines bitter grit and a self-effacing lyrical charm...” (The Vapour Trail).
A VOID have performed shows for a variety of emblematic live music venues in the UK and France, including the Camden Assembly, Bus Palladium, the Cavern Club, Belgrave Music Hall, and have shared stages with The Pearl Harts, Calva Louise, Healthy Junkies, Skating Polly, The SoapGirls, Hands Off Gretel, Beach Riot and The Queen's Head amongst many others. The band win over new converts at every show they perform and have built up a significant social media presence.
