PREMIERE – Eftersom – Tourne Tourne (Mufti Remix) (Paradise Children Records)

Operating from sundered soils – Eftersom is a triangle formed between Ravage Sentimental, close collaborator Jérôme Darmois and Chris Vella aka Moderne Romance. The term ‘Eftersom’ is used as a nod to their cross-border bond; a bond galvanized by a simple love of music, unwavering creative drive and a fair collection of imperfect studio gear. With their LP « LIE » lined up for the later half of 2023 – here the trio present Tourne Tourne; a precursor to the project which comes coloured with remixes from Tel-Aviv-based Niv Ast, Mufti, Radial Gaze and Ravage Sentimental herself. The original kicks things off with a purposeful march. Bold, discordant shards are set above a burning guitar riff and a sultry vocal line which build up a bright, effective Indie recording. Niv Ast then sharpens the energy and rolls it up into an electro-tinged club track. Mexico’s Mufti then suffuses the single with some 80s synthesis before Radial Gaze offers up 2 unique takes. Their ‘Pop’ remix lays pellucid twinkles over tight, sharp rhythms while their Indie remix then set climbing tones over steady and persistent drums across a forceful club tool. Ravage Sentimental then makes use of the raw, organic elements while allowing her vocals to shine before the warped, hallucinogenic tones of ‘Precious’ brings things to a close. Thick synthesis, brash drum work and more ghostly vocals evince the sonic symbiosis of the trio while offering an exciting insight into what’s to come.
