Lysistrata

Lysistrata is a french band (20 years of average age) inspired by the screaming energy of youth. Formed in 2013, their music is between post-rock, noise and math-rock. These boys dive from the solid rock of their virtuosity into a rampant ocean of sonic freedom, screaming and shouting with the exhilaration of free-fall. Once on stage they pack down the vibrations, amplify the tension and let it all come raving out like tomorrow just got cancelled.

(english text coming soon)

Commençons par la conclusion : ces trois garçons souriants sont super. Vraiment super.

C'est une grande joie d'accueillir sur Vicious Circle ce jeune groupe originaire de Saintes, Lysistrata, pour la sortie de son premier album, prévue à l'automne 2017. Lysistrata, ces trois amis de vingt ans de moyenne d'âge, Théo Guéneau (guitare/chant), Max Roy (basse/chant), Ben Amos Cooper (batterie/chant), qui renversent tout sur leur passage.

En premier lieu les étiquettes et rayons stylistiques. Leur musique, en constante évolution depuis leurs débuts en 2013, navigue à plus ou moins égale distance entre noise, post-hardcore, math rock, et post-rock ("post un peu tout" indique leur profil twitter). Vous lirez ici et là de très flatteuses comparaisons avec certaines références des genres susnommés, comme At the Drive-InRefusedBattlesFoalsExplosions in the Sky, ou encore Sonic Youth. C'est (souvent) vrai mais là n'est pas l'essentiel, l'influence majeure du groupe semblant être de très loin son envie du moment et de l'endroit, guidée par une spontanéité totale et cette manie insolente de toujours vouloir en découdre.

Sur scène notamment, où Lysistrata s'est déjà forgé une grosse réputation, enchaînant de longues tournées à travers l'Europe, jalonnées d'événements marquants. Comme par exemple Les Transmusicales de Rennes 2016, dont le groupe sera une des révélations sûres. Aussi le Printemps de Bourges où Ben, Max et Théo se voient remettre le Prix du Jury des Inouïs 2017. Des performances live impressionnantes, qui allient une énergie jouissive à une technique musicale assez hors du commun pour ce jeune âge, et qui permettent à Lysistrata de remporter en début d'année le Prix Ricard S.A Live Music 2017, au milieu d'une foule de prétendants. L'accompagnement artistique en résultant donne notamment vie à Pale Blue Skin, EP que vous pouvez obtenir gratuitement ici. Quatre titres rock fabuleux, sauvages et modernes, qui ont en prime été mis en images de fort belle manière (voir toutes les vidéos ici).

La suite est donc prometteuse, propice aux surprises et aux exaltations, nous avons hâte ; elle passera d'abord par de nombreux concerts et festivals durant l'été, par exemple Rock en Seine.

Lysistrata, a band inspired by and loaded with the screaming energy of youth. Formed in Saintes in 2013, this is a stellar rock power-trio. Transcendental guitar finesse shines from a back-drop of unstoppable drum/bass impetus blasting between post-rock, noise and math-rock. These boys dive from the solid rock of their virtuosity into a rampant ocean of sonic freedom, screaming and shouting with the exhilaration of free-fall. Once on stage they pack down the vibrations, amplify the tension and let it all come raving out like tomorrow just got cancelled.
