Sounds | Alcest - Flamme Jumelle

Indrukwekkend, dat is het woord voor deze song. Flamme Jumelle verwijst naar twin flames, twee lichamen die één ziel delen, en alle gevoelens die daarbij komen kijken. Meeslepende shoegaze en perfect getimede grunts worden in de clip gecombineerd met een sterk staaltje moderne dans. Dit is kijken, luisteren en overdonderd worden.

Les Chants De L'Aurore verschijnt op 21 juni 2024 via Nuclear Blast.



"Despite its more accessible vibe, this song is actually the most personal song of the album for me. "Flamme Jumelle", which means "Twin Flame", is about the idea of loss in general and the difficulty of coping with the absence of someone you deeply loved. It could be a family member, a friend, or a partner. On a more spiritual level, the title refers to the possibility that certain souls are connected in this life and beyond, and that separation is temporary and just a mortal concept."

For principal songwriter and frontman Neige, ALCEST has always been a gateway to the otherworldly, a means of exploring his spirituality. An elemental two-piece, completed by long-serving drummer and creative confidante WinterhalterALCEST seem to dip their toes in a multitude of musical genres without ever quite fitting in. “In the metal scene ALCEST is a weird band, in the indie/post-rock scene ALCEST is a weird band- we never quite fit in,” Neige reflects. “This is how I feel in life, always an outsider; It’s not a problem, it’s just the way it is.”
