Claude Violante and Toni Special met in Paris and created the band Haussmann in 2007.


Haussmann creates a very liberating, dreamy and intriguing kind of music, with an undercurrent of ideas, such as a melancholic picture of pop.
Their songs are informed by the history of French music, and reveal an ambivalent fascination with dance, love and death hymns.
First album is in progress and co-produced by celebrated French artist and producer Krikor.
 
Label: Tsunami-Addiction

Sixteen, I’ll never tell, 

The kind of clothes you would wear 

to look sweeter than us 
Watch out 
It’s a bomb, it’s a fire 

Smart kids, they like to Watch 
They wanna learn how 
to become sweeter than us 
They don’t know what they’re after 
If I could I wouldn’t be that soft 

Boys, like us 
They wanna play the game 
Like us 
They wanna play 



Girl like, Inside, 
Never scared, never tired 
to walk higher than us 
Watch out 
It’s a mess, when you’re out there 

Outside, it’s never safe, 
The crowd is loud but it’s a fact 
that you’re stronger than us 
And you know what you’re after 
If I could I wouldn’t be that soft 

Boys like us 
They wanna play the game 
Like us 
You wanna play the game 
Like us 
You wanna play the game 
Boys like us
