The return of Electro-Alternativ, after such a long wait …

Electro is coming back to Toulouse today after so many months of withdrawal with one of its most adventurous and popular festivals: Electro-Alternativ will take the pulse of the Pink City until September 18 in several places and report the evolution of electro music which, like jazz in its time, is mapping the next sound trends.

Many artists will perform through a daring program – which never means inaccessible or pretentious -, equal and inclusive with among others, Ancient Methods, Chapelier Fou, Coucou Chloe live, Dj Marcelle, Djrum live, Flore, Helena Hauff , Hysteria Temple Foundation, Kiddy Smile, Lena willikens, Louisahhh live band…

Toulouse is electro and many artists from the Pink City are eager to share their new sounds, often designed and developed during confinement. This is the case of Bruit, a quartet composed of Théo (guitar), Clément (bass and violin), Julien (drums) and Luc (cello). No singer: these four, strongly influenced by post-punk artists like Tortoise or Godspeed, You! Black Emperor, let their pieces paint climates in which words would be superfluous. “After a first two-track EP, on April 2, we released our first album,” The Machine Is Burning and Now Everyone Knows It Could Happen Again “, which only contains four tracks of ten minutes each, says Théo. . Our music is very written, almost neoclassical, with stringed instruments. We are obviously delighted to play at Electro-Alternativ: we are not really an electro band, but are very excited at the idea in front of an audience that loves music. ‘electro.” Composed of former members of Kid Wise, Bruit – a name chosen rather at random and for the joke then kept “to cover the tracks” – offers romantic (“Industry), atmospheric (” Amazing Old Tree “) and powerful music. (“The Machine Is Burning”, devastating) which should explode on stage. The title of this first album points to ecological and political concerns in tune with the artistic maturity asserted on this first attempt that looks like a master stroke. business to follow, certainly.
