FAUVE is made up of five main members including four musicians (vocalist, guitar player, bass player and drummer) and a video artist that produce music and videos. Because of its collaborative nature, at times a greater number of participants, at times up to 15 members would be contributing to the acts. During their media appearances, they like to keep a certain anonymity and mystery about their origins. The name of the band is inspired from the Les Nuits fauves (English title Savage Nights).
The collective became known through its online postings and found almost immediate success. On 20 May 2013, the band released its debut EP BLIZZARD containing the best of their productions thus far. It made the French Top 20 in its first week of release and two of the tracks appeared in the French Singles Chart. During the Bourges Spring Festival, it won the iNOUïS award as the discovery act of the festival called Découvertes du Printemps.
