Description

Paris based Wall of Death, together since April 2010, are one of the principal exponents of the new European post-psychedelic rock scene. Inspired by the scintillating understatement of the Velvet Underground, the aesthetics of Pink Floyd, the stridency of Neu and the Silver Apples, this trio of Gabriel Matringe (vocals, guitar), Brice Borredon (keyboard, vocals) and Adam Ghoubali (drums) draws us into their sombre, troubling world of uncertainty, perpetually seeking the keys to its future in the ruins of the past. With help from Hanni El Khatib and engineers Jonny Bell (Crystal Antlers) and Sonny DiPerri (Portugal.The Man), Wall of Death has created a dense and deeply individual album that makes an instant into a lifetime and more. "Loveland is like the last steps you take in the desert", says Matringe. "Dry and exhausted, one minute before dying". And so Loveland became a psychedelic album unlike the psychedelic albums of today: the definition of a slow-burn, it has a cinematic pace and limitless space and a mellotron that's practically another member of the band. Deeply indebted to Pink Floyd's transcendental Meddle and La Plan ©te Sauvage, Loveland's sound is exactly what Wall Of Death know they needed on this album: "The sound between love, paradise and fantasy," he says, "with songs about love, freedom, youth and hope. For me, it's the spectrum of what we love."
