Hear Automelodi Evoke the Cure, Drab Majesty on Bubbly New Darkwave Song

"Feux rouges, Châteaux brillants" appears on Montreal band's first new LP in 6 years

With bright jangly guitars that cut through a bubbling synth mix, "Feux rouges, Châteaux brillants" is a rather sunny darkwave track that mirrors sides of the Cure, New Order, Echo & the Bunnymen and other guyliner-friendly post-punks. Reverb-heavy guitars and vocals add a dream-like haziness to it all, allowing the track to sit comfortably beside contemporaries Drab Majesty and even M83 on their darker days. "Feux rouges, Château brillants" comes from Automelodi, a Montreal-based synth-pop band that hasn't released a new LP in six years, but that is now readying Mirages au futur verre-brisé, a new effort due May 3rd. ​Check out the new cut for the first time below; you can pre-order your copy via Holodeck.
