Leroy Se Meurt – La Chute (12″ EP, edition of 200 copies + 50 copies special edition)
About a year ago Leroy Se Meurt delivered a simply hard-hitting and smashing debut EP… which quickly sold out at the ET HQ… the mixed background of this duo from Paris in electronic music and in punk-rock shapes the distinctive sound of Leroy Se Meurt… you can call it synth-punk or elektropunk… or simply post-punk for that matter… Not only their debut EP did have impact… possibly even more did their live shows… their live performance is wild and in your face…
Now there is the follow up to that acclaimed debut EP… this time Leroy Se Meurt takes a little step back from the totally in your face attitude… the sound is a bit darker and aims less on a direct confrontation but works to crawl under your skin… the energy and tension is still there but is building up gradually… and has a bigger impact that way… Don’t miss out on this next step in the campaign of Leroy Se Meurt!
Selected press quotes:
“Dutch label Enfant Terrible welcome back Leroy Se Meurt after the Parisian pair’s sold out last EP a year ago. Again this one comes with mad punk influences, abrasive sound design and spangled grooves that will tie clubs in knots. It is also rich with the same sense of urgency and immediacy that defines their famous live shows. Wild and in your face, there is the dark techno of “Nefas” and rave shock of “Evasion” next to strobe lit biker disco on “Bapteme Du Mepris” and slow motion debauchery on “Lagim”.” (Juno)
