A new video from Lescop, for the song Marlène. It's another track from the artist whose eponymous debut release that came out last month.
Lescop's work is often compared to Joy Division, and on the surface you can see a link, with its post-punk propelled poetry.
I wrote about Lescop last month with the release of the album, and if anything I think its grown on me hugely.
Repeated listening to the collection reveals its full cinematic qualities, caverous and haunted but with a driving urgent quality.
Lescop's previous musical outing with Asyl saw him explore the more art-informed end of the punk spectrum, simultaneously earthy and literate, in the interzone where Iggy Pop meets Dostoyevsky.
