A stateless trio (Japan, UK, Sweden), Tristesse Contemporaine chose Paris as their battle field. The sound of their first album, produced by Pilooski in 2011, was immediately praised among the music scene and critics - raw and minimal, catchy yet mesmerizing, both poppy and spleen-heavy. Equally inspired by the ghosts of shoegaze, krautrock and Madchester, they aimed to write the soundtrack of an era that got lost into the night. Songs like « I Didn't Know », « Daytime Nighttime », « In the Wake », or « Hell is Other People » set catwalks (Chanel) on fire and but also the music press and live venues, as much in France (where they recently opened for Pulp at the Olympia) as elsewhere, including Russia and Eastern Europe.
The Woodwork E.P. is the second episode of the Tristesse Contemporaine story. They have a new label, Record Makers, which is co-releasing it alongside their mother-house Dirty. This is a definition of their DNA in four new tracks:
Waiting : obsessive, haunted, elegiac - the art of making dead people dance.
Vampires : in the shadow of new wave giants, a minimal prayer to make ghosts go away.
Woodwork : sun-drenched and languid, this is Tristesse Contemporaine very own version of a praise for patience.
Low Tide : back on the dance floor for perverted, drug-induced nursery rhyme. Higher than the sun.
Placed at the very entrance of the club, Tristesse Contemporaine now waits for us. A new album is to be released in September. No one will survive.
