Based in Paris, OFFSHORE DRILLS is a hybrid instrumental band mainly producing smoky tunes and soundtracks for video projects. The band is mainly founded on the venomous vibrations of moroccan violin player Anas Lamtaouech and the heavily reverberated guitars of french arranger Thomas Desjardin.
Each song comes from a collaboration with additional guests, musician friends and chance encounters who would give their imput and enrich the project. We all try to bring this warm haunted blues deep inside and we keep digging for unmapped soundscapes.

The band is now fully focusing on the last recordings of his debut album coming in early 2018.
