Persona Grata ― 2022 ― 00 000

Servo

Picture by Julie Jarosz.

Possiblement l’incarnation musicale la plus cohérente de la Ville aux Cents Clochers, SERVO tirent leur nom d’un titre du Brian Jonestown Massacre mais la comparaison s’arrête là. Psyché par vocation et pas par mode, les gars ont tôt fait de délaisser les tempos mollassons du genre pour des rythmiques syncopées, frôlant parfois-même les beats disco et les patterns garage. Sur scène c’est l’orgie sonique, la répétition devient transe et les voix lointaines s’entremêlent à la manière de trente Ian Curtis dans la chapelle Sixtine. Très vite on a d’yeux que pour l’étrange danse du cheval à bascule de la guitare et de la basse; la tête noyée dans une masse sonore aux allures d’un trip dont on ne redescendra que lorsqu’ils l’auront décidé.

ENG :

French three-piece Servo deal in the kind of dark, psychedelic noise-rock that storms with ease between gloomy, hypnotic moments and bouts of powerful, motorik noise. With a string of singles, EPs and their 2016 debut ‘The Lair of Gods’ behind them, the Rouen based band have released their second album, ‘Alien’, via Fuzz Club on May 2020. �

Servo’s sound finds an unstable home between heavy, droning psych-rock and gothic post-punk; forlorn, jangling guitars and deep, austere vocals breaking down into piercing blasts of feedback and distortion. Comprised of Arthur Pierre (guitar/vocals), Louis Hebert (bass/vocals) and Hugo Magontier (drums/vocals), Servo have spent the last few years bringing their intense liveshow – an assault of trance-inducing noise and blinding flashes of light – to growing audiences around mainland Europe and the UK.

After a couple of typically riotous and deafening shows in London, at underground haunts like The Shacklewell Arms and The Windmill, the band caught the attention of Fuzz Club, ticking all the label’s boxes: overloading on fuzz, reverb and drone. ‘Alien’, their first release on the label, comprises seven tracks of dark visceral psych. The third album is on his way and should bring, we hope, as much explosions of feedback and storms of distortion as the previous, or even more...
