Today, Loïc April shares Mes ruines sur tes décombres, the lead single off his debut full-length album, due out in spring 2018 via Bonsound. Recorded at Reelroad Studio and mixed by Adrian Popovich (Solids, Duchess Says, We Are Wolves), the song brings together luminous power-pop soundscapes and dark, distorted guitar fuzz. Loïc puts forth confident riffs, a natural extension of the sounds he explored on DIV/SION, his first EP released in 2016. The track is structured like a good film, each bar a frame that builds towards a final, satisfying crescendo. The cover art, created by Hugo Jeanson, compliments the music, and is as beautiful as it is troubling.

Mes ruines sur tes décombres is available now on all digital platforms.
Loïc April has been performing music for a while, though he only started to write his solo project in 2015. He has performed at POP Montreal, the FrancoFolies de Montréal, Coup de coeur francophone and Saint-Roch Expérience, among others. He’s also opened for Safia Nolin, We Are Wolves and Gazoline. Influenced as much by Slowdive and the Pixies as by Françoise Hardy, the self-taught multi-instrumentalist has a liking for unorthodox and melodious chord progressions. The result is a timeless and vivid French rock record.
