After her debut on Mannequin in 2019, Dissemblance now arrives on L.I.E.S. with her second full length of somber, cold wave and emotional bedroom pop infused songs. This time around we hear the Parisian artist add a new arsenal of instrumentation to her repertoire, incorporating live drumming and a wide array of synthetic instrumentation on top of her drum computers providing a backdrop to showcase her stark vocal performances throughout the album.
Meticulously constructed, this record displays the full range of Dissemblance’s musical dynamics as she pulls the listener into her universe where dreams and reality tread a thin line, one blurring into the next with no beginning nor end. From the plodding opener “Mercure” where tortured voices rise from a bed of pulsing synth tones, to the tribal drumming dream scape conjuring rhythms of “Centauresse” or heart wrenching album closer “Bon Voyage” with its ghostly 1950s oldies arrangement and pop feel, Dissemblance expertly brings together a diverse group of styles and sounds from different areas of the electronic spectrum making them her own.
An extremely unique and strong display of modern minimal synth pop that pulls equally from the past whilst propelling towards the future. Limited to 300 copies worldwide.
