Peenoise tease upcoming album, Straight Lines Strange People, with lead single ‘Unimaginable Falling’

Formed by brothers Gilles Vandecaveye-Pinoy and Cesar De Sutter-Pinoy, Peenoise was unknown to us until only a few weeks ago when we were lucky to catch their incredible and exhilarating show in Porto, accompanied by Elias Devoldere on drums. We were instantly bowled over by them. Both Gilles and Cesar have been crucial threads in Belgium’s shape-shifting contemporary jazz tapestry, performing and collaborating with various other projects and also in theatre productions.

Following 2022’s Rooms to Dark Boats in the Night and Views in the Light, Peenoise announced yesterday the release of their new album, Straight Lines Strange People. Described as “the soundtrack for a futuristic-baroque film, which does not yet exist”, the upcoming album was in the works for three years “in dark forests, green fields, and on snowy mountain tops”. Over this period, “they began to build their own musical landscape in which they allow humor, darkness and surrealism to coexist”, as the press release explains.

Accompanying the album announcement is the release of lead single ‘Unimaginable Falling’, recorded during a blizzard in the mountains. Leaning into a wonderful wonkiness, ‘Unimaginable Falling’ is an exuberant and transportive track bristling with a surreal and mysterious flair. Listen to it below ahead of the album’s release in August.

Following their recent tour in Portugal, Peenoise are hitting the road later this year to bring the Straight Lines Strange People live experience to some venues in Belgium, with stops in Brussels, Antwerp and Brugge as well as a live show at Meakusma Festival on August 30th.
