There’s exciting news from La Tène, who have announced the release of a new album. Entitled Ecorcha/Taillée, the album sees the French-Swiss trio expand to a seven-piece, like in their previous record. Founding members Cyril Bondi, Alexis Degrenier and Laurent Peter are joined again by Jacques Puech, Louis Jacques, Guilhem Lacroux and Jérémie Sauvage to augment their entrancing and euphoric musical universe.
“La Tène’s long, hypnotic, wordless pieces are built from traditional folk instrumentation, wild percussion and blurred, subtle electronic embellishments”, as the press release describes, “and feel as ancient and earthy as those millennia-old artefacts – with all the metal, wood, dedication and craftsmanship they entailed.”
Arriving on February 3rd through Bongo Joe Records, Ecorcha/Taillée features two epic tracks recorded live in Le Gamounet near Clermont-Ferrand, in a barn converted into a ballroom and cultural centre.
Ahead of of the album’s release, La Tène have let loose the mesmeric and jubilant ‘La Taillée’. Listen to it and let yourself be carried away.
