Lesser Evil

Lesser Evil is Ariane and Christophe, who grew up strangers in houses next to one another in the same small town, met years later and morphed into a haunted two-headed beast of a musical duo as if it was always in the cards. Driven by Ariane's vocals, Christophe's electronics and a shared propensity for refined-meets-broken production, they plumb the depths of sound and mind in ways equally intense, intricate and immediate.

Press Quotes

[...] le duo propose ici quatre chansons captivantes, toutes menées par un désir d’expérimentation poussé et visiblement étoffé. Dans un genre difficile à établir, quelque part entre electronica et synth-pop psychédélique, Lesser Evil tisse un décor hypnotique et enveloppant, qui rappelle certains des meilleurs moments du chef-d’oeuvre Third de Portishead.

Olivier Boisvert-Magnen, Voir

[...] dark, mysterious, and smoky, pulling from surf, psych, ’60s orchestral pop (Lee Hazlewood, Scott Walker), jazz, and other sounds you could imagine David Lynch smoking to. Singer Ariane M has the perfect voice for this kind of stuff that sounds vintage and modern simultaneously. Lesser Evil are reminiscent of a lot of artists — Broadcast, Portishead, Roisin Murphy to name three — without ever actually sounding like them. No small feat.
