MONTREAL DARK SYNTH OUTFITS RELEASE SPLIT EP
Monday, 02 June 2014 08:04
 

Montreal dark synth outfits Police Des Moeurs and Essaie Pas are set to unveil a split LP and its a match well made. The publicity blurb from their French label Altier Ciseaux, also based in Canada declares, "a night in Montreal, a synth pop dream. The urge not to see daylight again" and so it is with the intensely distant and nocturnally robotic new wave synth stylings of both bands. You won't want to see the morning!

We featured the Police Des Moeurs EP from last year, Les Mécanismes de la Culpabilité, which they released together with their debut album and the track 'Echéance' off it reached number 53 in our top 100 last year. The track released in advance of this split EP, 'Je Te Montrerai' is just as impressive and features Violette Vilaine in her Donzelle alter ego.

Marie Davidson and Pierre Guerineau make up Essaie Pas and have been plying their semi lo-fi synth experiments for a couple of years now and released their debut long player last year, Nuit de Noce. Their advance track here,'Retox' ups the ante in the production stakes with a beefed up sounding beat, crisp lazer like synths and dual vocals. The release also includes the single from last year, 'De Menthe Liqueur (part II)'.

Listen to 'Je Te Montrerai' and 'Retox' below and pre-order the split EP limited to 300 copies here. It's out on June 17. Tracklist and the tour dates for the upcoming Police Des Moeurs European tour dates are also there too
