Nôze and more TBA
We left them as highly energetic showmen with a weak spot for the tipsy atmosphere of ending house music balls, and here they are 2 years later, like good wine, full of maturity and sophistication, asserting their character in a renewed fashion, with more depth and subtlety.
Make no mistake about it, Nôze are still Nôze, they have simply swapped their colourful electro-cosmopolite entertainer costumes for the no less flattering attire of velvety pleasures and joyous melancholy and a re-emergence of their first love for improvised music.
A multi-headed album, Dring was born from multiple encounters and collaborations, disrupting the duet’s recording routine: if the “Nôze sound” is resolutely turned towards instrumental music, this time Pailhès Ezechiel and Nicolas Sfintescu gave their friends complete freedom, as title after title, recording session after recording session Nôze gradually became more of a "real" group with shifting and porous boundaries. A spontaneous process, which progressively became this album’s backbone, also an opportunity to express their gratitude to the worlds of jazz and improvised music, and highlight the talent of their faithful collaborators: Thibaut Frisoni (guitar), Alexandre Authelain (sax and clarinet), Matthias Mahler (trombone) and Emiliano Turi.
