The Missing Fragments
Label: Unknown Pleasures (2020)
Founded in 2016 by the french artist Mathis Kolkoz, Blind Delon draws his energy from the cold and synthwave references: ancient synthesizers, icy bass lines and black romanticism, the ingredients of a recipe that combines raw elegance and pure melancholy. In the line of Boy Harsher, Poison Point or The Soft Moon, they immortalize the Post-Punk ideal and elevate it to an invulnerable absolute.
Unknown Pleasures is very proud to announce this real masterpiece! Blind Delons first album is laced with a dark energy and a daring and deep lyricism. In the darkness of todays world, the sound material, at the same time rigid and alive, reveals a powerful encounter between organic and synthetic sounds.Mathis Kolkoz, the founder and singer of the group, as well as the invited artists (Kris Baha, Lapse of reason, DJ Varsovie) carry the lyrics and voices. Like chants, the dance and mystical music are close to incantation. Friends of the group, I Hate Models and Arabian Panther, are also guests on a couple of the tunes.The band builds a sensory atmosphere, an analogical reverie, an artefact for a corrupt and aging humanity. By working all the details, sometimes at the edge of sound design and sound decor, the group invites us in a world at once personal, sometimes disturbing but always powerful. This album carries references to amplified music from the 70s and early 80s as well as synthwave.
