Known for combining psychedelic soundings with soft pop, ‘Belle comme la nuit’ is an offering that leans more towards French peers Telepopmusik and early Daft Punk. This single follows up on his release of ‘Australasie ft. Laetitia Sadier’, the EP’s lead track, with clever video produced by Patrice Curtillat (a.k.a. Poborsk).
“Our blood runs hydrous with the seas/The essence of oceans spills through our veins.” Laetitia Sadier matter-of-factly unfurls these words on the opening track and they prove prescient. Astrobal’s wispy, French-accented vocals intermix with Sadier’s enchanting voice as she delivers spiritual and scientific information about the universe as if engaged in a shamanic incantation.
“Emmanuel became a long-time collaborator and he’s very good at working with other people, but there was also a desire to do his own stuff. He was kind of doing it before he started working on this project, but then I guess he found his focus and made this incredible piece of work,” says Laetitia Sadier.
“From one track to another, you’re transported to very different countries, but it’s also very familiar to Emmanuel, and I find that to be a real strength: to have such a variety of different styles, but still be familiar and to have some similarity. He reaches really far out to find certain tracks and to bring them back to a whole.”
Karaoke Kalk was founded by Thorsten Lütz in 1997. By releasing music that bridges several electronic genres, including minimal, ambient, and techno, this niche label is helping to define the sound of contemporary pop.
‘Memories of Stars’ will be released on November 24, 2017. You can already pre-order the EP through Bandcamp.
