CoughCool One of those unexpected gems you come across that won't let go. Quite a haunting quality to this psychedelia. The guitar on this album is just unreal, just beautiful. Sometimes sublime, sometimes you swear you're listening to Pink Floyd's 'The Wall'. Completely enamored with this album Favorite track: Fire in my Fingers.

ferment excellent, la voix un peu enfantine et un rien inquiétante d'Emilie, les guitares aventureuse de Mister Youngblood, une rythmique qui épine dorsale, bref, un bien bel album.

baudelagon Je commence vraiment à apprécier les compos d'Emilie Zoé. Je crois qu'il va être temps bientôt de lui faire de la place dans ma collection.

there is nothing you asked for i counted the hotel room is sad just like the seaside there is no one you care for you counted not a guy at the bar except the one that comes searching and screaming for you but you’re already there on a cloud a skinny girl you never met before reads aloud about the sky and hope she’s holding you spellbound all horns wane and subside folks fidgeting about on television the water is troubled and fluorescent you pick up the phone half-smiling you request don’t look for me no more the siren’s got lost in the city lights no don’t look for me no more the siren’s got lost in the city lights in the city lights i keep on seeing quasi-stellars in the deep of your eyes i keep exploring roundabouts one way flows in the skies can a sun turn to stone dearest is that you on the phone folks fidgeting about on television the space is troubled and fluorescent in the city lights

grain sand and mud too smooth to climb where is the way out there is no words for how far we’ve come how weary here i sit and watch with a little one i maybe killed just like a soldier are you the one i maybe killed just like a soldier see the poison in the wound and the wound wouldn’t heal we’re just walking around without doing anything everything seemed dead and then it was all alive i just want you to be loved and know nothing about death and know nothing about death put your helmet on the speed of light you’ll hit the soldier never will be found caring for my little one put your helmet on (and know nothing about death) the speed of light you’ll hit the soldier never will be found caring for my little one

we travel the light between the streets the high rises the passers by we travel the light over the land oh hold me tight with your hand what should we do now where will we be where will we be where will we be with no cities no streets where only the flood bleeds what do we do now what you do now what you do now what you do now what you do now with no cities no streets where only the flood bleeds so what should we do now the waves the tide the seven seas the boatman’s left the passengers we travel the sun between the stars racing the night the police cars where will we be what should we do now where will we be where will we be what you do now what you do now what you do now what you do now we had the time to leave the table we used to clean so what should we do now what you do now what you do now what you do now what you do now what should we do now what you do now what you do now what you do now what you do now we travel the days between the screens a black hole as it careens spreading our love into the maze and in our room the many moons with no cities no streets we travel the days between the screens a black hole the king of spleen where only the flood bleeds spreading our love into the maze and in our room the many moons so what should we do now what you do now what you do now what you do now what you do now what should we do now we had the time to leave

today i watch it flow i could say yes or go your face a blurry clown get your stopwatch started the city’s old you were not invited one can’t control where it goes fire in my fingers today i watch it flow i could say yes or go your face a blurry clown get your stopwatch started the city’s old you were not invited one can’t control where it goes fire i get fire in my fingers fire in my fingers fire in my fingers just for you i got fire in my fingers fire in my fingers fire in my fingers there was some air and some light between my fingers and the world a moment snatched from time we promptly forgot about it get your stopwatch started the city’s old you were not invited one can’t control where it goes fire in my fingers

Count to Ten 04:30
i’ll count to ten and you stay quiet i’ll count to ten it’s almost everything i’ll count to ten and you stay quiet and i’ll go i count to ten it’s almost everything and the night drops all its stars the echoes all along i will quietly pick them up but it’s only a loan if only we had eyes to see where they belong infinity can’t fit in a song we all agree it’s time we rely on them i’ll count to ten and you stay quiet and i’ll go i count to ten it’s almost everything

The Leaves 07:12
i live on top of the tree i am the eye you can’t see i am the sound of the city i hear the clouds and they say i don’t find the street of the madman who loved me it’s fall and i seek something lost in my body all the leaves go back to the ground all the leaves go back to the ground all the leaves go back to the ground all the leaves go back to the ground sometimes i hunt in the subway i’m the lion i’m the prey or i can come here to pray to read the walls and they say all the leaves go back to the ground all the leaves go back to the ground all the leaves go back to the ground all the leaves go back to the ground i don’t find the street of the madman who loved me where the forest is sweet dig a hole and you’ll find me all the leaves go back to the ground all the leaves go back to the ground all the leaves go back to the ground all the leaves go back to the ground did i seek long enough did i sing the right song it’s fall and i seek something lost in my body

about

/A\ is made up of Emilie Zoé, Franz Treichler and Nicolas Pittet. The seven tracks in their debut album, the result of a series of jam sessions, perfectly synthesises the respective worlds of the members of this ad hoc trio. From one track to the next, a series of strange and perfect hybrids combine harmonically rich pop with driving rhythmic patterns, with perfectly arranged windows for woodsy acoustic soundscapes and electronic alterations. In doing so, /A\ multiplies different energies and dynamics: the warmth of a migratory blues (Hotel Stellar), cat-like, undulating post rock (Grain Sand and Mud), low-tempo machine-like fury (We Travel the Light), a pale morning atmosphere (Count to Ten), mutant trip hop (The Leaves), an idle climb to Golgotha (Our Love is Growing)… And the best in all this is that these trailblazing ideas follow each other with an incredible sense of naturalness.
