A two headed logo for a six legged band, electronic bass for a rock record, Solange La Frange uses it's ears as a compass and heads out north on a southbound road. Appetite for destructuration has led the way to a raw, basic, eponymous first album.
The trio, from Vevey, Switzerland, were able to capture on tape the wild hedonism of their live performances: Wakawak, a poppy Apache western dance tune or Open The Door My Dear both sweat of childish abandon. The basic original line-up is unchanged: Tristan Basso plays analog keyboards and machines, Julie Hugo sings and Luca Mango plays bass and guitar.
But the band also incorporated a drummer and a few organic instruments: congas, bells and cymbals give the recordings a tribal swing, precluding any sense of electro-by-numbers and placing the band in a more subtle grainy noise territory. You Broke My Heart Baby feat. John Parish or the instrumental Morse are fine examples of these risky out of bounds excursions.
This fertile musical territory has benefited Julie Hugo: without letting go of the orgiastic energy that defines the band, she unleashes an array of lascivious vocals, voracious chants and savage choruses, culminating on the dry, weeping Wakawak - Solange La Frange - Solange La Frange of The Black Rocks.
Born of pop music, raised in rough and arid badlands, dressed in elegant graphic clothing by Thomas Koenig, Solange La Frange is an unpredictable, audacious and truly dazzling creature.
