Etyl is above all Eglantine's project. From a classical background, she first learned piano before taking an interest in singing. She soon decided to create her own musical universe composed of unusual instruments. Influenced by minimalistic electronica and ethereal trip-hop, Etyl took form with her voice and warm bass that smoothly led her to more jazzy ambiances. Her first solo presentation at the Voutes des Frigo in December 2002 as well as the creation of a six title demo with Antoine Gaillet in 2003 allowed her to meet Christelle Lassort who soon joined the band.
