Based on a short novel about flood and fusion of all living forms, “Etter Lys” from French post metal / post hardcore experimentalists INGRINA marks the band’s first full length offering, and proves them to be surely benefiting from the exposure that comes from being an unorthodox band with post-rock leanings and super heavy machinery. “Leeway”, the new track we’re premiering below, is the key part of their new play, telling the story of how all our lives and landmarks are being brutalized and reshaped by a liquefied world. A world of leeway.
“Etter Lys” comes out May 7th via A Tant Rêver Du Roi records, Tokyo Jupiter records, Vox Project, I Love Limoges records, No Way Asso, Bus Stop Press, Medi Cation Time, Hardcore For The Losers, Trace in Maze Records, and Ideal Crash. Artwork by Mamie Loup
Lifetime goes adrift and the current plays with it, all along its untameable path. Whatever was in control before, now becomes the ocean’s toy. Lives cannot dwell anywhere, only their absence is noticeable. The real landlords are the unpredictable surges coming from the tidal disorder. A remote sensation of Melancholy is carried by the streams. The way it takes is untraceable. Reason, patterns and purposes all gave up, but Madness still takes its time to show up. In between, a state of dereliction leads a world of leeway. The prolific source isn’t only releasing waters, it’s freeing all kinds of strained things that used to obey to a violent and exacting order. Melancholy stands firmly against Dementia as among the flood and the perpetual drift, hides a pure delight, shy and unworldly.
Another new track, ‘Black Hole’, was released earlier this year:
A heavy stillness spreads over the depths of the lake, silencing all voices and crushing even the greatest of strengths, until every movement is suppressed. Time has turned the liquid mass into stone. Each insignificant raindrop raises the pressure higher and freezes water atoms to the electrons. Down there lies an eternal world of numbness, which used to follow what seemed to be inescapable gravity rules. The amber’s aeon taught deep black waters how to shelter and hide energy. They could become deep black powers, if only they knew a dam was holding them tight. That concrete was tying them down. Eternity is proved wrong as the clouds release one drop too many, and cracks on the sea wall appear like unexpected springs. The black hole’s depths scatter themselves through enlightened valleys, giving birth to the unknown.
