Naast was formed in Joinville-le-Pont in 2004. The band originally comprised of just two members, neighbors Gustave (guitar and vocals) and Nicolas (drums). Their first concert was played in a pub, as a support act before The Parisians played. Interest from Paris then began to be grow in the group. In 2005 Nicolas and Gustave were joined by Clod (bass guitar, keyboard) and Lucas, known as Laka (guitar).
