Anywave are back in action with a new Fléau release, it was a long time since they released their first self-titled album, three years have already passed like it was nothing. Together with their partner in crime, Atelier Ciseaux Records, a five-track album titled “II” will be released on a limited edition run of vinyls, a collector’s edition of 50 hand-numbered transparent vinyls and a book by Raphaël Lugassy called “Organs“, and a regular edition of 200 black vinyls. The artwork for the release is stunning as usual, the work of Myriam Barchechat, photographies by Raphaël Lugassy.
It is very true that Mathieu Mégemont‘s (Fléau) new direction strays away from his original sound, but it introduces a whole other complexity found otherwise within more alternative electronic genres – creeping in between the ambiguous nature of the sweeping, soothing landscapes of sound that hook you in. Even though some aspects of his new release stays true to what he created on his debut-album, this newly developed and intriguing metamorphosis suggests he’s expanded – instead of becoming cliché.
We’re honored to be exclusively premiering “IV“, a song taken from the forthcoming album, due to be co-released by Anywave and Atelier Ciseaux on vinyl, on the 29th of March. You can pre-order it already by following this link, listen to it exclusively via Repartiseraren down below.
