“Piȼedelula” is the whimsical first single plucked from Le Groupe Obscur's forthcoming EP.
Parisian label Midnight Special Records' latest recruit lives up to their name, presenting a mystical aesthetic with face paints and home-made surrealist costumes. They sing in both French and L'Obscurien: a made-up tribal language drawn from the fictitious island they inhabit. In real life, the five-piece hail from Brittany in North West France, where they played a home-town set at Trans Musicales in Rennes last year.
The swirling distorted echoes and dreamy melodies of “Piȼedelula” are an on-brand mystical taste of what's to come from Le Groupe Obscur on their EP, due out early next year.
