Gabriel and Yseult AKA Menthüll are a dynamic Dark Wave duo from Gatineau, Quebec, who return to WL//WH with another installment of their synth-driven, dystopian storytelling aural art.
The Official Music Video for the band’s 14th and first single of the year, “Tes Ailes,” weaves the tale of a broken romance with fallen angel lore to stir the soul with haunting poetic aesthetics.
Propelled by hypnotic marching and thumping drum beats, a torrent of murky emotions stream through swathes of cinematic synth swirls, hauntingly wistful bassline pulsations, and chugging, droning low undercurrents, amid an array of ghostly husky, breathless, and celestial vocal agonies, traveling desperately into shapeshifting waves of inescapable time.
Evocative, high-definition visuals fuse hypnotic flows of motion with breathtaking imagery to unearth buried archetypes of life and death. Movement-enhanced stone chiseled statuary awakens the mind’s eye with visions of surreal tragedy whilst windswept white doves and kaleidoscopes of frenetic butterflies fly angsty into disenchanted mists from dimming dreams.
