The “Kalimbalism” song speaks precisely of the digestion of foreigners and relates the experience of a tourist with a broken camera, taking in as much as he can (food, brochures...) in a country that isn’t his own. Thus, for lack of being able to take pictures, the song’s protagonist devours and stocks as many things as possible in order to bring home as many experiences as he can, a quest that Nicolas Bouvier seems illusory: “One does not travel in order to stuff oneself with exoticism and anecdotes like a Christmas tree, but so the road can pluck you, rinse you, wring you”. This is why the song was stripped of its lyrics in order to enhance the sounds of the kalimbas (traditional lamellophone instruments from Southern Africa), accompanied by Jean Thevenin (Jaune, Frànçois and The Atlas Mountains) on drums, Dorothée Hannequin (The Rodeo) singing harmonies, and a few discreet touches of autoharp, piano and synthesizers. Furthermore, the instrumental nature of the song can help one concentrate more easily on the images presented. Over forty subjects were captured in the city: the traveller once deprived of his camera is now avenged.
GroundBurst is an instrumental rock trio whose sound strikes for the band’s kaleidoscopic approach and wide-open mindset. The band consists of Phil, Si, and Erik, respectively on guitars, bass & keys, and drums. These three talented musicians set out to create a lush, diverse and textural musical backdrop, borrowing from influences as diverse as electronic music, psychedelia, rock and even jazz with a minimalistic flair. Their recent release, “Triad” is an EP featuring 3 original compositions, as the title of the release might lead you to guess!
These Are Truly The Last Days is a musical project with a driven experimental twist. Their music blurs the lines between various genres, including ambient, electronica, glitch hop, and more. The project’s self-titled studio effort features 11 studio tracks.
