|Description :||Brussels-based duet formed by drummer Damien Magnette and guitarist Nicolas Gitto, Zoft proposes a deviant and ludic take on rock, combining high energy and twisted rythm patterns. After extensive touring across Europe, Damien and Nicolas settled to record their first album, the aptly titled Electrically Haunted. |
With this strikingly mature debut, Zoft enters the realm of unclassifiable bands. Influenced by the works of Steve Reich, Pierre Schaeffer or japanese outfit RUINS, the duet blends together mad rythms, chanted lyrics, repetitive motifs, abrupt guitar sounds and a jazzy feel that might recall ZU, Mike Patton's Fantômas or their label neighbours K-Branding. On stage, the band is surrounded by sound sculptures and home-made instruments, making the audience part of a performance where the light show takes a special place in creating a warm and chaotic ambience, in perfect adequacy with the music.
Electrically Haunted was home-recorded by Mehdi Ayari in two weeks in the countryside, mixed by Yvan Hanon with Damien Magnette, and mastered by Frédéric Alstadt.
