ack in April 2010, a few months
after the release of their debut single ("No Sex" / "Crise boursière"),
SDZ included Pierre & Bastien's "RMI" on its 10-year anniversary
compilation. Later on,
other songs from the band ("Démocratie" and "Déglingo") were featured on
other compilations released by the label. As much as we like
compilations - a genre that is not a genre and that no one seems to
fully appreciate - we decided to go one step further in our support of
Pierre & Bastien and to actually release an album by them.
This third studio album shows the band at its best with a
well-constructed set of songs. Paul Jimenes' lyrics hold nothing back
but simulateneously juggle brilliantly between private and social
subjects hence creating several possible levels of understanding. Dark
or menacing moods chase the light and brighter ones. Once again this
fight of the soul puts us, without any preciosity, at
the heart of the band's life.
Musically, the band is more powerful and intense as ever: guitarist
Baptiste Nollet is particularly dazzling and Frédéric Trux pounds
sometimes a nearly industrial rhythm to the songs. One could
see in their sound derivations from bands like Wire, Wipers, Dogs, Metal
Urbain or Reich Orgasm. To the sheer brutality or depraved psychedelics
of some tracks respond pop-like vocal harmonies of some other ones.
From the minimalist and destructive opener "Sympa" to the dark and
disturbing closer "A nu", from the striking "Secret" to the light
"Musique grecque", Pierre & Bastien has crafted a dense, varied
and more-complex-than-it-seems album. It's now yours to discover!
