Terrace in Trance plays an edgy pop style, where crystal-clear and sharp guitars are illuminated by synthetic reflections. A new project from Ferdinand Cros (Viraje) and Julien Perez (PEREZ, Adam Kesher, Beat Mark), the band combines Anglo-Saxon post-punk and indie influences from the 80s and 90s (New Order, Devo, Brian Eno, Q Lazzarus, The Feelies, Pulp, Talking Heads) with contemporary electronic sounds. The songs are concise and clear, in the minimalist, harmonious tradition of Metronomy or Infinite Bisous. They oscillate between danceable melancholy and electric overtones. The lyrics, carried by a voice of detached romanticism, are imbued with surrealism, evoking cascades of mirrors, home wars or the love life of flowers. Their first single “Roses” will be released on Etoile Distante Records on September 8, accompanied by a video directed by Antoine Corcos.
To Van Kao and Le Dom, heads of the Paradoxe Club label and both DJs and producers, recently formed Otto Diva. With this duo, the end of the evening is likely to be epic. With their new project, To Van Kao and Le Dom lean more towards new-wave and techno sounds, bordering on Boy Harsher. They first unveiled two debut tracks, Bumper and Self-Destruct Device, last March, and recently released Quench, an ultra-promising debut EP.
