ABOUT THE RELEASE
After having enjoyed success with their indie-pop band Exsonvaldes, Parisian musicians Simon Beaudoux and Martin Chourrout return with Ravages, their new project : electronic music, but song-oriented (think Morr Music, or LCD Soundsystem meets Gainsbourg). Keyboards (DX7, Juno-106 or Korg MS-10), no guitars, only in french.
« Renaissance« , the duo’s new EP, offers their original and modern vision of a bright and organic pop. Nourished by science-fiction (their name comes from an anticipatory novel by french author René Barjavel, whose futuristic vision they share), influenced by utopian architecture, modern pop music and their scientific backgrounds (Martin graduated from Polytechnic school of Paris, and Simon has a master degree in Artificial Intelligence), Ravages offers a very strong and personal universe.
Their first single was produced by danish producer Tobias Wilner, from the band Blue Foundation, who also directed the video for the title-track.
