Century Band Information:

 Century is a French band that was formed in the mid-1980s. The band is known for its unique blend of pop, rock, and electronic music, which has made them a favorite among fans of alternative music. The group was originally comprised of four members, but has since undergone a number of lineup changes.

 Century's music is characterized by its catchy melodies, driving rhythms, and soaring vocals. The band's early work was heavily influenced by the synthpop movement of the 1980s, and their debut album, "...And Soul It Goes," showcased their ability to create infectious, danceable pop songs. The album was a commercial success in France, and helped to establish Century as one of the country's most promising new acts.

 Over the years, Century has continued to evolve and refine their sound. They have experimented with a variety of styles and genres, incorporating elements of rock, trip-hop, and ambient music into their songs. This willingness to take risks and explore new musical territory has kept the band fresh and relevant, even as they approach their fourth decade in the music industry.

 One of Century's most notable achievements was their contribution to the soundtrack for the 1999 film "The Matrix." The band's song "Lover Why" was featured in a key scene in the movie, and became a hit single in many countries around the world. The success of the song helped to raise Century's profile on the international stage, and brought them new fans from all over the world.

 Despite their success and longevity, Century has remained a relatively low-key band, eschewing the trappings of fame and celebrity in favor of focusing on their music. Their commitment to their craft has earned them a loyal fanbase, and has helped them to maintain their relevance in an ever-changing music industry.
