2010 release. A Heart Full Of Sorrow is a disillusioned album for broken hearts. This is the work of Benjamin Daures, heir against his will of a tradition of loner in the vein of Ian Curtis, through Morrissey, to Kurt Cobain. Made in his suburban bedroom while smoking joints, A Heart Full Of Sorrow is a first album, dreaming of other places (Death Valley or the dry plain of Texas) as a way to escape local boredom and the gloominess of Paris' outskirts. These are drafts of ballads, thrown on a 8-track like break-up letters to teenage years. Benjamin plays all the instruments: a skullish drum machine, a shy guitar, and unconfident vocals. When you listen attentively, you will understand that the fragileness is the force here. This is about sincerity, nakedness, and about not hiding behind the primitive energy of garage rock -- to put back songwriting into angrily-played songs.
