Beat-driven. Employing heavy elements of funk and soul, paris_monster closes the gaps between synth-pop & garage; between modern detail and old-school grit. Solid earth. Soaring soundscapes. A mass of noise. Volatility. Vocal singularity.
The Deli NYC calls paris_monster “a precise, complex and sophisticated
mechanism" with a "a monstrous instrumental technique”, delivering a sound
that “could be the new face of American roots rock”. This sound is on
display on 2017’s singles “Ape” and “Hot Canyon Air”.
In fall of 2017 paris_monster began recording their first full-length LP,
set to be released in 2018. The album will solidify their dirty, glitchy,
lyric-centered, groove-based sound, and will be a milepost in their search
for a focused and flexible musical approach. The elements of funk and soul
join with lyrical themes of bygone eras in rural settings, characters lost,
and mortality confronted. Love achieved, and denied. Americana. Themes in
stark contrast to the pounding grooves and electronic mayhem, creating
depths and dimensions that could have been otherwise achieved only by
dropping a modular synth in the corn fields of central New York or the woods
of Connecticut. And maybe that’s exactly what happened.
Lesley Keller of Pancakes & Whiskey said, "Each time I see them perform I’m
dumbfounded at just how great they are”. paris_monster’s live show is
something to behold. The challenge when seeing them live is getting past
the fact that there are only two people creating all that sound. Two
people. A drumset. A bass. A keyboard. A eurorack modular synth. One
microphone. And all that sound. Beyond this visual impossibility is a
careful and deliberate balance of sounds, colors, and textures. Melodies to
serve a story. Chaos to destroy preciousness. The Deli NYC observed,
“infallible superior forces: as we all know now, 'with great power comes
great responsibilities,' and the duo never abuses of it - that's what good
musicianship is."
