Couleur Dessin is the new collaborative project of Anne-Lise Griffon and Christian Simmons (Phern, Sheer Agony, Lantern). The pair fuse improvisational live-to-tape composition, musique concrète experimentation, surrealist French and English cut-up lyrics, and a gear-loose guitar pop sensibility to create psychedelic pop music that is eclectic, inclusive, and catchy.
The duo take inspiration from wherever they can find it: current events, the ‘60s LA pop scene, French New Wave, Canterbury and Kraut Rock, art installations, instrumental exotica, old and new recording techniques, and social media all make their way into their songs.
Couleur Dessin's self-titled debut is a dynamic full-length collection of unfolding moods and moments that interlace across its 13 song span.
All selections were written, recorded, mixed, and mastered by Couleur Dessin.
This one is perfect, and it is grows and grows already being a mammoth. ‘Time’ & ‘Scribe’ framing the piece are beautifully done, ‘Crank’ with an insane climax, a ‘Child Actor’ playing Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, ‘Egg’ perhaps the most accessible song here and still at times totally losing it, and the full-blown psychotic ‘Doctor’. You can never unhear what you’ve heard here. raik
