To celebrate the one-year anniversary of the release of the second part of the double album “Passive/Aggressive”, via ManicDepression Records and Icy Cold Records, the Parisian Coldwave trio, made up of dBoy (vocals, synths), Crazy Z. (bass, synths), and Tall Bastard (guitars), drop a video clip deftly edited, colored and directed by Quentin Caffier for the highly intoxicating slice of rousing Post-punk “Tales of Despair”.
Confessional lyrics admit to fighting the truth about a loved one whose dark spells of deception and manipulation have finally been shed, on the way to brighter horizons, whilst urgent, warm layers of burning guitar weaves, rapid skipping drum beats, droning bass lines and restless synth melodies, sway moodily around high angsty vocals, crying out in pain, into relentless flows of obsessive passion.
Modern, virtual reality-esque visuals capture an interpretive dance choreography performed by Clara Duflot and Romain Franco to sync seamlessly with the dire Romanticism of the soundtrack.
