CD REVIEW - UNDER YOUR CARBON CONSTELLATION

13 tracks, 57.44 ORGANIC on November 27, 2012 12:44

Organic for sure is one big surprise. This is a Belgian band set up in 2011 by Joris Oster (Silver Riot) and Raphaël Haubourdin (Graceland). Both musicians and their bands were totally unknown to me, but the biggest surprise for sure is how this duo got signed to a Swedish label. And CC Productions also surprised for having signed this rather atypical band.

The sound of Organic is not the most accessible one! I noticed a very strong new-wave element, but still post-punk and punk-rock influences. Electronics and bass guitar have been mixed together to obtain a rather unusual elixir. Several tracks revealing an experimental touch. I sometimes get the impression to hear an adapted-electro form of The Birthday Party meeting Big Black. It's not all that violent and furious sounding, but there's a quite original way of transposing 801s influences into something new. A few songs were sung in French, but the majority of the songs are English.

The debut songs "Seeds" and "Johny Craque" both are noticeable pieces and an excellent way to start. Other cuts like "Disturbing Street" and "The Meat WE Kill" have this particular electro punk-rock touch. The best is yet to come with the final song "Waiting". This song is quite different and slowly grows until an amazing climax of cyber-rock-trance music. Organic is quite complex to understand and the song "UFO" probably is a very good title to describe the particularity of their music.

"Under Your Carbon Constellation" is not the most accessible release although this band will find their audience in the 80s fans corner.
