L’Épée - FR

L'Épée is a four-piece band comprised of Emmanuelle Seigner (Ultra Orange & Emmanuelle), Anton Newcombe (The Brian Jonestown Massacre) and Lionel + Marie Limiñana (The Limiñanas). The collaboration came about last year, when husband and wife duo The Limiñanas recorded an album ('Shadow People') with Anton Newcombe. A track featured French musician, actress, model and muse Emmanuelle Seigner on guest vocals. When she came into the studio to record the group dynamic clicked and a natural collaboration ensued. Inspired by melancholic movie scores and the mythology of Rock'n'Roll music, from Lou Reed to the Rollin Stones, 'Diabolique' is infused with light, shadows and layers of psychedelic fuzzy guitars. It was recorded between Lionel and Marie's home place Cabestany (FR) and Anton's Cobra Studio in Berlin.The collective have named themselves L'Épée, meaning "the sword" in English, after it came to Anton in a dream.

Dreams is het overtuigende debuut van sixties-beat-supergroep L’Épée op een lome lentedag
— Daily Indie
it’s a crisp piece of French language guitar pop that traces psychedelic pathways across a clear blue sky. It’s a blissful start, full of poise and purpose, matching impeccable melody to that driving rhythm.
