Camille teases new album ‘OUÏ’

One of the most unique, unclassifiable figures in French music is back: Camille has released a teaser for her forthcoming album OUÏ, released on Because Music on 2nd June. The first single will be 'Fontaine de Lait' on 17th March. The extract in the video is recognisably Camille and utterly haunting, thanks to its ritualistic percussion, the sudden arrival of swooping choral vocals, and the repeated refrain "Je ne mâche pas mes mots" - the equi...

The Blaze ‘Territory’

Mysterious duo The Blaze made quite a name for themselves with the 'Virile' track released last year, and particularly the video accompanying it, which was more like a short film and took a fresh, modern look at questions of masculinity. It eventually earned them Best International Alternative Video at the UK Music Video Awards. 'Territory', which features the same distinctive approach to vocal production, is taken from their forthcoming EP (rele...

The Penelopes ‘Tina’

The Penelopes have previously gained a lot of attention online for their sparkling remixes of David Bowie's 'Let's Dance' and The Cure's 'Just Like Heaven', and Bowie crops up again (via a cover of 'This Is Not America') on the flipside of their glossy but emotive new single 'Tina'. The video for 'Tina' itself includes footage from Asia Argento’s directorial feature Misunderstood, starring Charlotte Gainsbourg. An earlier version of the song ac...

La Terre Tremble!!! ‘The Life Within’

The uncategorisable three-piece finally return with a follow-up to the labyrinthine 2012 release Salvage Blues. The first taster of the forthcoming album Fauxbourdon, called 'The Life Within', is at once a startlingly alien object and one of La Terre Tremble!!!'s most electrifyingly direct songs to date. The video that accompanies it, directed by Samplerman (who also produced the collage-y cover for the album) correlates perfectly with their hig...
