Belgian nineties throwback supergroup with heavy grooves and shoegaze guitars
WhenWed. 27 May, 2020
Almost three years after the release of ‘Shake’, ENDZ is back with ‘Harmed’. The album was recorded –on the edge– at the Breakglass Studio in in Montreal under the super-supervision of Jace Lasek (The Besnard Lakes, Suuns, Land Of Talk, Wolf Parade, Patrick Watson, The Luyas) with the help of several musicians from the thrilling Montreal musical scene.
Crossing the Atlantic has propelled the cluttered minds of Fab Detry, Loïc b.o. and Kevin P (future past members of Austin Lace, Flexa Lyndo, Fabiola, He Died While Hunting…) into a dizzying spiral. The band focused on the trio’s very essence: sharp guitars turning into shoegaze patches, a groovy bass guitar taking unexpected turns, moody drums giving hugs and slaps, naive vocals and pop melodies putting up a smokescreen on the whole thing.
A wound is always hidden within the most melodic parts of ‘Harmed’: the outside world, between constant aggression and nonsense, inspires every word and is reflected in the music. Would this album be abstractly political? Maybe. Undoubtedly.
Recorded at the Breakglass Studio in Montreal by Jace Lasek and mastered by Ryan Morey, ‘Harmed’ will be released on the 28th of February on Luik Records (Belgium) and Finaliste (France). ENDZ will present ‘Harmed’ on the 19th of March in La Rotonde at the Botanique in Brussels.
Antoine Meersseman, en à-côté de son groupe, BRNS, a composé en fin d'année passée une collection de chansons sensibles, cinétiques et bizarres. Miroir à plusieurs facettes, où l'on peut croiser tour à tour l'ombre glaciale du Cure trilogique, l'électricité post-punk d'un Crack Cloud, la mélancolique beauté de Sparklehorse. A écouter en dégustant un verre de Kahlua sur le dos d'une colline par une nuit trop claire.
