Phèdre

#14: Phèdre – Tivoli

“Tivoli” has a cleaner sound than Phèdre‘s previous work, but that doesn’t mean it lacks for huge beats and weirdness, the things we’ve come to love about the most from the duo. Pitch-shifted vocals over a deeply grooving bass and frantic snare rolls, the track is perfect for late-night dancefloor freakouts. A new record is on the way for 2016, and if “Tivoli” is any indication, it’s gonna be damn fine.

“Tivoli” has a cleaner sound than their previous work, but that doesn’t mean it lacks for huge beats and weirdness, the things we’ve come to love about Phèdre the most. Pitch-shifted vocals over a deeply grooving bass and frantic snare rolls, the track is perfect for late-night dancefloor freakouts. The video, directed by Jason Harvey, is a sensory assault featuring bizarre animations and our heroic duo rocking out across the land in strange costumes. Totally lives up to their history of fantastic videos.

There’s a new Phèdre album on the way in 2016! “When the snow disappears.” In the meantime, check out their back catalogue.

They’re back!!! Toronto electro-psych-pop party starters Phèdre have been a little on the quiet side when it comes to releasing new music since their tremendous 2013 LP Golden Age, but that all changed this month. They dropped a brilliant Acorn remix, true, but even more tantalizing was the release of a video for brand new jam “Tivoli”, as well as a promise that a new album is on the way in 2016, “when the snow disappears.”

The video, directed by Jason Harvey, is a sensory assault featuring bizarre animations and our heroic duo rocking out across the land in strange costumes. Totally lives up to their history of fantastic videos, including “Sunday Someday” and “Ancient Nouveau” from their last record, and of course the smash single that started it all, “In Decay.”

Phèdre are performing Dec 5 at the Silent Shout Festival (that’s us!) with a lineup we think is pretty darn swell. Torontonians take note!
