Berne, Switzerland, March 28, 2019: Elusive Sound proudly presents “Monolith”, the debut EP of French post-rock/modern classical quartet BRUIT ≤ on vinyl.
“Une fulgurance de beauté intense et saisissante, à découvrir absolument. A la faveur des deux longs et beaux titres de « Monolith », BRUIT ≤ réussit avec brio à créer de nouveaux sons. Des sons d’une force évocatrice incomparable. Vertigineux. Intenses. Immédiatement saisissants. Une splendeur”. – (Totoromoon)
“Monolith” is a stunning first introduction to BRUIT ≤. The band’s synthetic sci-fi inspired ambiance of sound effects, soaring synths and deep bass tones reminiscent of film noir inspired dystopian fantasies, is organically enhanced by the ever present etherealism of their classical instrumentation and arrangements in spellbinding emotion-filled melodies that climax in roaring drone driven post-rock.
Recorded, mixed and produced by Clément Libes at La Tanière, mastered by Alexis Bardinet at Globe Audio Mastering, featuring art by Sébastien Blanchot and artwork editing and logo design by Mehdi Thiriot, “Monolith” will be released on two one-time only 180g+ vinyl variants named Burning Cinders and Magma Flux.
Cut from 24-bit masters at 45RPM, both variants are presented in a heavy gatefold outersleeve featuring the first ever use of spot UV for Elusive Sound.
The Burning Cinders edition shows off the endless possiblities of colour combinations and is limited to 150 copies.
The Magma Flux variant is a numbered deluxe edition that includes a special handnumbered inlay representing the monolith and limited to 100 copies.
