I saw a very strong link between dark matter and our unconscious, both present at 90% in the universe, and yet no one knows what they are. I started to create a character attracted by light yet always caught back by his demons. Behind this enigmatic title hides an ambiguous observation, a provocative statement that stands like a refrain for a modern Orpheus. Lyric-wise, I worked with author François Vinsot. We explored both in French and English, space for ambiguity, word games, double meanings, and non-spokes. Straight out of a tortured love story, in need of reciprocity: a wannabe French lover caught in an impossible relationship, from wounds to wounds, he confides in music.Rock was the focus but to push the idea further, I wanted the music to be sometimes unrecognizable so I used classic and jazz instruments running through effects. In the end, anything could be rock, it’s just a matter of intention. Each song has its own atypical combination of styles from heavy metal to light jazz, through Drum’n’Bass or even EDM. For me, the essence of this album is all about offering to see the invisible whether it’s a matter of emotions or sensations which is why I looked upon what inspired me the most: artistic gestures going from Mike Patton to David Bowie including Tool, The Mars Volta, David Byrne, Salvador Dali, and David Lynch. It’s an immense joy to be recognized and understood for your craft which is why I feel totally blessed and honored to enter the Epictronic family with this debut album. I hope it will echo one way or another with your soul. Love and Peace to you all.”
