Swiss Post-Rock artist DRLCT share new video “Un jour en Octobre”

1 min read

The Swiss post-rocker DRLCT has released the last of four videos, this time dedicated to the song “Un jour en Octobre”. The track is taken from the artist’s debut album “Médée”, out since May 31st via Sunday Fog Records.

DRLCT is the solo project of the Swiss musician Fantin Reichler (The Kompressor Experiment, Méandre). His debut effort “Médée” is inspired and dedicated to Fantin’s mother, who died of cancer in 2022.

The album starts with the dark, cascading guitars of “Asunder”, a beautifully played and terrifyingly emotional fall into heartache. “Un Jour En Octobre” (One Day In October) is a darker post rock sound, bringing a tortured feeling to the mix; it was inspired by the news of the illness’s aggression.


“Flow Your Tears, That Bluebird Said” is a ballad representing the acceptance of what is coming and a yearning for the end of a very long, painful fight. Finally, “Interlinked” takes us through her last advances to embrace the inevitable. The ending of this song is quite emotional. It’s truly a beautiful musical treasure that recognizes and undertakes the more somber side of the human journey.

The album is a lamp post in the dark. A deep dive into grief, sadness and disbelief. Catharsis in the form of soaring, cycling and hypnotic melodies drenched in reverb. An invitation to lose oneself in a cinematic tapestry, where emotions are raw, unfiltered, and achingly real.
