A Parisian duo that plays with synthetic industrial punk by tinting it with baggy influences.
Like a Mentos dropped into a soda bottle, punk has often reached new heights by reacting spontaneously to the desolate topography that gave birth to it. We can put in this category the Parisian duo Bracco and their second album Dromonia, whose emaciated and minimal music navigates between the cry of anger and the SM refrain, the ghost town and the general riot.
Tightened around a quite classic alliance (scanned voice, drum beats, distorted guitar), the duo gracefully moves away from the chestnut trees of synthpunk to find a form of epiphany in proto-dance music. Thereby, Cobra Music 4 mischievously quotes Suicide and the baggy sound when Carter reminiscent of some pagan Hypnobeat rituals.
But Bracco does not seek the reference of good taste and wallows wholeheartedly in the lower front industrial at KMFDM (I Love You) or the FM glucose limit trip hop (Be a Boy shared with Bryan’s Magic Tears), thwarting aesthetic postures. The last three pieces of the disc, forgetting a bit the quest for efficiency, shine with a psychedelic light that suits their complexion perfectly. sunshine, most successful title Dromonia, or the super-powerful The Fall, which closes the album on a synth-voice duel, let glimpse another terribly seductive facet of Bracco.
Dromonia (Born Bad Records/The Other Distribution). Released December 9.
