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]
