Toolong Records
3 ch. De Rigoumel – 83200 Toulon – France
After a self-produced album ‘The Desert of Wasted Time’ (2016) that obtained a good critical reception in French indie webzines, Erwan Pépiot comes back with 9 new songs, gathered in ‘Hidden Memories’, a new album released in June 2017 on Toolong Records and mastered by François Fanelli at Sonics Mastering.
Erwan Pépiot is a DIY multi-instrumentalist based in Paris. He wrote, recorded and mixed the entire project on his own in his home-studio. Only one exception to the rule: Aurélie Tremblay’s voice, present on every track.
The vocals are the first thing that strikes you when you listen to Somehow’s romantic and melancholic universe. Erwan’s phrase and timber are in line with Morrissey and Ian Curtis, but the melodies show a real singularity and sincerity. Somehow’s surrealist lyrics deal with human relationships, the passing of time, and the ideas of change and revolution.
The bass lines remind us of The Cure or Joy Division and yet the imaginative arrangements and the wide diversity of sounds (acoustic guitars, keyboards, melodica, violin, cello…) are more in line with bands like Belle and Sebastian or Fanfarlo. The result is a unique and touching indie-pop.
On stage, Erwan delivers an intimate voice and guitar interpretation of his songs.
This brand new record has already received unanimous critical acclaim in French and international media:
“While the deep timbre of Pépiot’s voice is the first thing you notice, once you hear the bass line, you’ll be entranced. (…) The result is splendid” [The Revue]
“Between his emotive vocals and the bouncy bass line is a mounting melancholy that sweeps over lampposts and railroad cars” [Ohestee]
“‘Hidden Memories’ is most certainly an LP to add to the collection” [Emerging Indie Bands]
“Une atmosphère parfois mélancolique, qui nous happe, et dont on ressort rasséréné“ [Pop Is On Fire]
“Un hymne à l’innocence et à la jouissance de l’instant, entre plaisir et liberté“ [Indie Music]
The first single’s video clip has been featured on BIRP! and Les Inrocks.
New album ‘Hidden Memories’ – Release date: June 2017 – Toolong Records

Pretty City Bio –

The three piece Melbourne lads combine Smashing Pumpkins-esque fuzzed out guitars with washy, reverb drenched vocals to produce a dreamy yet powerful rock sound. They say they are influenced by Trent’s band from the iconic 90s film Reality Bites, and aspire to be like Mystic Spiral from Daria.

2016 has been massive so far. The band’s inaugural voyage to this year’s SXSW (2016) saw them capitalise on their undeniable buzz. As well as scores of press reviews and interviews, their festival culminated in their official showcase reaching venue capacity to rave reviews from blogs Glamglare, Noisy, the AU Review, as well as SXSW punters who came out in droves to see the Melbourne trio throughout the festival. 

 Upon returning home, the band released their debut album ‘Colorize’ in May, 2016. Pretty City’s debut album has taken the band to new heights not only in the land down under but in the USA. Keeping good company with artists like The Kills & Paul Simon, ‘Colorize’ was the 12th CMJ most added record to US college radio in early June & is one of only two independent records to be included in the top 20. It also debuted at number 103 on the overall CMJ charts and has made top 10s on college radio throughout the country, including a two week stint at number 1 in Massachusetts. ‘Colorize’ was number 70 on the overall CMJ charts in July as continues to chart strongly.  

Back home COLORIZE garnered nothing short of rave reviews:

“Colorize covers genres such as ambient, experimental and shoe gaze, but what’s truly astounding is how perfectly the album progresses. There is a clear logic behind the track listing, which ties together the flawless album. This album cries out to be played in full, start to finish, and the payoff for doing so makes for something even greater than the sum of its parts”– The Music

“The acid-drenched debut album from Pretty City will consume you with the Melbournians’ progressive sound.” – AAA Backstage

The lead single from their debut LP, ‘Running Around’ was premiered by CMJ in February 2016, describing the song and band as, ‘Strutting up and along some hazy rainbow made of stadium riffage and ’90s glow stick big pants dance while gazing down at their kicks only long enough to take in that rainbow, this Melbourne-based band sound as brash and ready as a new band can be.’ – Eric Davidson – CMJ, New York.

The remainder of 2016 sees the band hitting the road across Australia in support of Colorize’s vinyl launch, as well as plans to tour the States and Canada in 2017. The band have begun recording their second album, with the first single due for release in mid October. 

In 2015, the band released their ‘Triple A side’ single in June 2015, with tracks from the short EP being played on Triple J, and community radio across Australia, as well as commercial radio (Triple M). These tracks were also played on syndicated radio shows that are played in the UK, USA, Europe and Australia with their sound being well received by international audiences. 

2014 was also a massive year for the band. They released the fresh new fuzz-rock single Piece of the Puzzle, which channelled a year’s worth of relentless touring and shows. The songs’ carefree, grungy, rock and roll attitude instantly won fans over. Dave Ruby-Howe of Triple J Unearthed said, “This band keeps getting better…There’s a serious punch here that keeps the track surging forwards. ” Dave Ruby-Howe Triple J Unearthed review (Piece of the Puzzle). 

The band have an insatiable work ethic, constantly releasing music that pushes the band in new and exciting direction while giving people catchy, memorable melodies you can sing along to.

We present you TERRA INCΩGNITA.
 
Terra IncΩgnita was born in 2010. After the self-release of their inaugural album, “Barren Land”, which was received favourably by the press – including Metal Hammer – and having aired their first official music video clip, “OUTCOME”,on Mtv’s Headbangers Ball, the band went through line-up changes. After supporting their album with many lives shows, both locally and abroad,(Rock Harvest Fest, House of Rock, Baltimore, U.S.A.)Terra IncΩgnita had to re-invent itself. This sensitive stage, ultimately forced the band into a 2 year hiatus. 

In 2015, the new and improved Terra Inc
Ωgnita was reborn. Rising from the ashes, the band is solidly driven forward by new members, with fresh ideas, new musical journeys, and a thirst to reach the top. 
The band is currently in the studio, and started pre-production and recordings for their 2nd album, titled, “Fragments of a Ruined Mind”. A concept album, with many twists and unpredictable turns. An E.P. was recorded in mid-2016, as a prelude, titled “Sign with Blood”.
