Following their 2017’s release FLEUVE and their recent cover of Pink Floyd’s β€œWhat Shall We Do Now?”, Belgian post-rock/industrial collective THOT returns with this 3 track EP written by the gang’s brain Gregoire Fray before the world froze in March 2020. These songs carry Fray’s obsession for electronic bass lines & heavy guitars, and witness the band’s journey which has been marked out by beautiful sinuous curves. 

EUPHRATE is the entrance gate. Not only to this EP but to all the music the band has been cooking for these past 2 years. Here Fray embraces his mother tongue. In French he leads the song through a sonic puzzle gradually joined by the haunting voice of vocalist Juliette Mauduit around whom singers of polyphonic choir The Mystery of The Bulgarian Voice gather in an epic and swirling ending. Here, lyrics are inspired by women fighting for their rights.

The journey continues with BATELEUR (which name comes from a card of the TAROT), a 4’10” bass driven steamroller in which GrΓ©goire Fray juggles with French and English to interpret what’s fueling his inspiration. As it evolves, the song reveals into a down tempo stellar hymn lead once again by Juliette Mauduit.

And finally, Juliette takes over on SLEEP ODDITY, a haunting ballad about urban loneliness, sleepless nights and astrophysics wonderings. The track then gets lifted by heavy guitars and grazing keyboard leads and closes with Fray’s chameleon voice surrounded by waves of reverb & feedbacks.
