Sounds from the Heart Festival – 2021
Minuit Machine (Paris / FR – 23:30)
Minuit Machine is a French parisian duo born in 2013.
The members are Hélène de Thoury (for the instrumental part) and Amandine Stioui (for the vocal part).Hélène and Amandine’s music is a subtile mix of moving voices, mind-blowing synth lines, and deep electronic beats.
Through their nostalgic but extremely modern tunes, Hélène and Amandine talk about their past, present, and future ; all these haunting and disturbing thoughts which can’t be told. Minuit Machine’s music is often described as disrupted, emotional, and terribly addictive. It will make you wanna dance your heart out to express all the rage, passion, and angst you have inside of you.
While on stage, Hélène and Amandine forget about the rest of the world, and deliver an intense and emotional performance.
A new EP is to be released on September 2020 on the label Synth Religion.
JE T’AIME (Paris / FR – 22:00)
Formed in Paris, JE T’AIME (Dany Boy, Tall Bastard and Crazy Z.) released their debut single “The Sound” in the Spring of 2018. Following the enthusiastic public reception of this first recording, the band chose a secluded spot on the coast of Brittany to focus on a more major work. Weeks of sleepless summer nights in the pursuit of new sounds result in the creation of eleven new tracks: the sound a post-punk cold wave hybrid, reminiscent of the great Mancunian Factory era and suffused with hints of the Smiths.
THE TROIKA (Zurich / CH – 20:30)
enter the universe of ritual-martial dark-wave of pete s and reto g – be overwhelmed by the dark sounds of melancholy and pain, of forbidden love and eternal death
the troika was founded in 1998 and started out as a goth-rock band. in the mid-zeroes our music turned darker. after aschy left the band in 2008 pete s and reto g turned away from goth-rock towards a more epic kind of music. mixing classical instruments with electronic sounds, heavy drums and hypnotic vocals. this change is reflected in our two studio albums. while most tracks on «awake», released in the beginning of 2008, are straight goth-rock songs, our latest album «a white rose for eternity», released in november 2010, creates a powerful atmosphere of dark emotions.
