Following the releases of «Grain» and «Clôture», Darius
‘ third opus «Voir» lives up to their reputation. After heading to Laval (FR) to meet with young producer Amaury Sauvé (Birds in Row), the five Fribourgers came back with a massive record whose overview is worthy of a CinemaScope western.
Their twenty-two guitar strings compose a surprising orchestral landscape that masterfully oscillates between abstract noise rock and instrumental post-rock. Their playing has refined although it hasn’t soothed; Darius’ formula stays the same. Being poles apart from effects, manners and make-up, these five lads play for thesake of passion, honor and camaraderie.
A beautiful live band to be taken in the face, with open arms, calm breath and abattling heart. [L. Jucker // Hummus Records]
