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.

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.
