Police Des Moeurs, the Canadian electronic act from Montreal, garners the attention of alternative electronic music fans and the dedicated media with each new release. The band has been active since 2010 and quickly gained attention from the global electronic music scene. This is evident not only through their releases with respected labels such as Visage Musique (Montreal) and Mannequin (Berlin) but also their live performances in North America and Europe as their name and fame often generate buzz.
The duo comprises Francis Dugas and Manuelle Gauthier and 2023 sees them release their new spunky Extended Play “Sauvetage” (September 18) through Electronic Emergencies label (Netherlands), and it all sounds in my ears like an aftershock electronic party following a glorious live gig of PDM.
It seems that the band’s latest release, the “Sauvetage” EP, is a thoughtful gesture towards both their fans and their record label. The new tracks showcase the band’s impressive accuracy and form, with a blend of electro and techno beats and prominent use of synthesizers. The vocals occasionally adopt a darkwave style, adding to the overall narrative of the EP. All of these elements combined create a powerful and explosive listening experience that is worth repeating…actually, the whole record goes on repeat alone.
I heard a blend of ‘abyssal’ synths and crunchy beats, with synthetic sounds layered over steady rails. Strange melodies dominated the tracks, with a commanding voice leading the music. All I heard at the end is an utterly complete new work by this amazing act and everything is accurately measured and correct without obscuring the experimental approach to all things Police Des Moeurs. You can have the “Sauvetage” EP Digitally, or on Limited Edition 12″ Gold Vinyl, turn it loud and let it grab you!!!
