We Invented Paris is a European artist collective with Swiss roots. It unites as well musicians as photographers, video artists and designers. The project’s journey began in summer 2010 when Basel-native singer/songwriter Flavian Graber asked his friends to join him on a CouchSurfing-Tour through living rooms, house boats and cosy bars all over the continent. Meanwhile the experiment has developed into a vital band that has released two highly-acclaimed albums on their own label Spectacular Spectacular. Their music is a journey through pop- and folk-spheres, a persistent mixture of tradition and modernity. Due to their distinctive DIY-approach, their energetic live shows and their unresting work, We Invented Paris have become one of the most unique English-singing bands in the Swiss and German indie scene.
