French Post Punkers based in Brittany, Allein in der Badewanne, made up of Tom Coret (of Tableraz) on guitar, Jules Caledec on bass, guitar, Baptiste Coupé on synth/vocals, and Théo Schröter on synth/vocals, AKA, conjure up both their Gallic and Teutonic souls in a captivating video for the narcotic new single “Pas de règles.”
Hypnotic Cure-esque twinkling guitar strings eerily pierce the crawling, vigorous bass lines’ serpentine flow with lingering intrigue and dread, while steady layered backbeats range from slow and staggered to rapid-fire rolls, as gripping dual male vocals alternate between tempting and alluring German mystery and warm, dreamy French romance, amid glowing ominous synth swathes to surf on the brink of insanity at the hands of drug addiction.
Dizzying views spin disorientation over an urban apartment complex during a night of drunken shenanigans and the intense fallout that follows. A lively chain of events follows reckless male bonding through blurry, blackout blunders, seedy, stairwell scenes, and fire pit, graffiti-strewn hangouts to form a gritty and intimate portrayal of excessive behaviour, the consequences, and friendship.
