Legendary experimental pop group Aksak Maboul are back with a new album, Figures, their first in 40 years. After sharing ‘Tout a une Fin’, they are teasing it again with new track ‘Silent Silhouettes’, featuring Lucien Fraipont, Faustine Hollander, Erik Heestermans and Fred Frith. “Could this almost-instrumental, electronic tango-like track be evoking a dream scene in a Bioy Casares story, filmed by an Italian maestro in the ’60s?…”, asks the press release. “What’s certain is that it unveils some of the sound of “Figures”, with its unique instrumentation, collages and enigmatic moods.”
‘Silent Silhouettes’ is a wondrous and entrancing track. Take a listen below and grab the album when it’s out on May 15th through Crammed Discs.
