“La nuit marche au rythme de nos mémoires” — “Song”
If you missed Alcest’s last album, Les Voyages de L’Ame, it’s understandable. After all, there is not a great deal of French bands who actually use their native tongue. Phoenix, well, might as well be from Phoenix. Alcest plays shoegaze, somewhat dark and at times ambient, moving from a cloudy to clear sound within each song. I know they have opted to include more English on this album but the French language adds to the mystique where their music leaves off. Unfortunately as they have probably found, French doesn’t sell well in the States.
