Highly anticipated since their first EP, 51 Ways To Leave Your Lover, which broke its way into the hearts of all who heard it, Tristesse Contemporaine have perfected this magic by taking it all the way to the Parisian and French stages. Crystalline arpeggios, dreamy loops and whispered vocals create a world of destabilizing and refined emotions which carry a thrilling light to the darkened dancefloors. The trio of enigmatic donkey-masked singer, Maik, Leo on guitars and Narumi on synthesizers, trusted their minimalist melodies to the expert hands of DJ/producer, Pilooski. Romantic and flamboyant, arrogant and haunting, this first album imagines a world in chiaroscuro, where the electrical illuminations of shoegazing merge with electronic beats, with a heightened new wave sensitivity. Climb to the dark side of modern pop as you enter the fractured, hypnotic dance of Tristesse Contemporaine.
