Le Couleur – Comme une fin du monde

Canadian synth-pop for you today courtesy of Le Couleur, who released their third LP Concorde last week. It’s an album inspired by the rise and fall of the aircraft of the same name – punctuated at one point by the sound of an engine exploding: a stark reminder of the Air France tragedy in 2000 that left no survivors. Singer and keyboardist Laurence Giroux-Do told Âught last month that the band “were fascinated by the Concorde: its symbolism, its sexy look, its crash”. Comme une fin du monde itself is a slow-burner, gradually building to an intense, disorientating climax.
