Montreal electronic duo Essaie pas are set to release their fourth* album, Demain est une autre nuit on DFA later this month. Having released three albums*, three EP’s as well as a split with fellow purveyors of the nocturnal, Police Des Moeurs plus last years excellent single, ‘Danse Sociale’ since their formation in 2010, Marie Davidson (her latest solo record was in our best of list last year) and Pierre Guerineau have finally landed a wider platform for their clinical multi-generic approach to synth based electronic music. As big fans here at Indie30 we hope the DFA association garners Davidson and Guerineau the recognition they’ve long deserved. Listen to first single, ‘Le port du masque est de rigour’ below, a sparkling and pulsating ride that continues the metronomic and disciplined approach of the aforementioned 2015 Indie30 Top 100 listed ‘Danse Sociale’. The album also includes ‘Retox’, which also made the same list two years ago. Pre-order the album on orange coloured wax here. It’s out on all formats on February 19.
