Etienne Machine - Off & Off (vinyl)
12" Vinyl of Etienne Machine's "Off & Off" album. Pressed in classic black.
Human or machine, a duality evoking 21st century’s spleen and melancholy where feelings and sensations confront electronic sequences and saturated guitars. A confrontation between instinct and reason.
Result of more than a year of work, « Off & Off » turns the EP’s page to focus on larger scale projects. The LP is the mirror of the band’s recent years and marks Etienne Machine’s first physical release.
Homonymous opposition, « Off & Off » takes place through the voices of Emile Schaffner and Justine Tornay, proclaiming emergency and tension on titles like « Selfspace » and « RIFT (Erased Your Face) » or elegance and relief on « Alarms » and « Membrane ». Six tracks where analogic synthesizers dance with guitars, where drum machine matches rhythms, giving birth to a hybrid and united piece of music.
