The Foreign Resort
Label: Solange Endormie Records (2019)
LOBBY was born in May 2017. In November, a first demo is recorded at the Rock School Barbey. In August 2018 (after such a well managed crowdfunding) a first album is recorded at Hesat Recording by Jean-Baptiste Calluaud. Fragrance voluntarily takes the opposing way to the first record : the synths, more luxuriants, are showcased. The sound is clear and modern, surgical. However, the recipe remains unchanged : synths and guitar riffs are mixing and twisting together, enhanced by a delicate reverb and a very powerful bass. The deep and nonchalant voice of Timothy hovers over the whole and takes a step away from the cavernous, typical voices of post-Joy Division cold bands. The album was thought as a succession of ponctuated and addictive hits. A realist palet of everything the band is capable of.
Fragrance is the first album of a young band, in a hurry and ambitious. Spotted and then produced by Solange Endormie Records, LOBBY wants to skip steps, to play everywhere, all the time. Now based in Lyon and Paris - cities hosting niches of alternative and independent music - LOBBY is ready to spread its melodic and heady Cold.
