Biography

Population II is a band dedicated to its disengagement, constantly working on refining their imposing, yet unpretentious sound. A trio consisting of singer/drummer Pierre-Luc Gratton, guitarist/keyboardist Tristan Lacombe and bassist Sébastien Provençal, Population II are masters at both improvised madness and sophisticated composition, delivering heavy psychedelic rock infused with feverish funk rhythms, a hint of jazz philosophy, a burst of energy reminiscent of punk's early days, and a love of minor scales that harkens back to the roots of heavy metal.

Press Quotes

Psych is meant to be subversive music at its core, and Population II understands that [...] 8/10

Exclaim!

Population II était déjà le meilleur groupe de rock sur scène à Montréal, mais ne l’était pas encore sur disque. Ce qui est maintenant chose faite. 8/10

La Presse

[...] un dangereux alliage de rock progressif, de funk psychédélique et de métal rappelant tantôt Black Sabbath, tantôt King Crimson, tantôt Les Sinners. ★★★★

Le Devoir

Électrons libres du québec has a magnetic pull.

Cult MTL

Électrons libres du québec is truly a powerhouse of an album. From the space-like sonics of “Orlando”, to ripping funky bass licks in Beau baptême, to the discorded cacophony of Pourquoi qu’on dort pas, the whole thing screams epic.

Also Cool

[…] Population II réussit à créer sur cet album un univers cohérent aux confins du space-rock. ★★★★
