Amidst a savage terrain of volcanic rocks, a scintillating metallic graphical object emerges, slicing through the landscape, floating through as though a divinity. A wanderer is attracted, captivated, and ultimate snatched by the omnipresent cube. The object begins to revolve and its rotations entrance the man into a tribal, symbiotic dance. Frédéric Lebain & Grégoire Pédron are Backgammon partners and neighbours who also blend experimentation with art and beauty in the form of the fashion films and music videos they create together.
Following her brand-new album Endless Revisions’ stellar first single The Dawn, Chloé goes down an ever more adventurous path with Recall.
Very special guest Ben Shemie, vocalist for Montréal’s mesmerizing Suuns, lends his voice to the track’s nebulous atmosphere. «Suuns is one of those rare bands whose music is felt through the body first. It’s a very disorienting feeling,» Chloé observes. The singer’s whispered vocals are right at home over the track’s mechanical, swaying beat, echoing his own band’s abrasive songcraft, which vacillates between psych and post-rock radicalism. The backbeat and vocals engage in a call and response, eventually merging together in a sort of effects-drenched pagan psalmody.
“I wanted to write a ‘pop’ song in my own way, with a heavier, more animalistic rhythm. Ben’s voice express this carnality, kind of like if the music itself was sweaty, but with a more subdued, aloof form. With Ben, you feel like you can write any type of song and that his voice will find a way to take it to another level.”
