Carine played bass for the group. 2 years into working together in The Vale Poher Group, the two began a new project, MENSCH, which sound-wise falls somewhere between LCD Soundsystem and Blondie. Combining keyboards, beatboxing, aerial vocals from both members and catchy melodies, they blend elements of krautrock, afrobeat, pop, and new wave music. Their website is at http://menschband.com/home/. 2.
