After a long break, Les Breastfeeders are back for the first time since 2011 with two new songs, released via Blow The Fuse Records. Honouring Quebec’s francophone garage-rock tradition, the Montreal rock ‘n’ roll landmark unveils one original song and one cover translated into French.
On the single Ma mort d’avant ma mort, they move away from their usual abrasive, punk sound to focus on hypnotic guitars and magnetic vocal harmonies. With lyrics ranging from resentment to sadness, the song tells the story of a broken heart that slowly withers away. Tu n’es pas celle que tu croyais, tu es comme celles que tu détestes / Et dans ma vie devenue immonde, je m’éteins à chaque seconde, sings Luc Brien.
Listen to Les Breastfeeders’ new songs, available on all digital platforms.
With Hey, petite fille, a cover of Sweet Young Thing by The Chocolate Watchband, Les Breastfeeders stay true to the original version without falling into the trap of pastiche. The frenetic rhythm, combined with the strong percussions, will inevitably have you stomping your feet. Careful not to damage your dancing shoes!
