Today Montréal-based synthpop duo Automelodi releases the new single "Feux rouges, Châteaux brilliants" – following the success of "La Pouissère" and "Les Métros Disparus" (featuring Liz Wendelbo of Xeno and Oaklander), this dreamy guitar-laden ballad is the third single from their new album Mirages au futur verre-brisé out May 3rd, 2019, and it premiered earlier this week on REVOLVER Magazine.
The band has been preparing for their upcoming return to Europe, embarking next week on a full continental tour. Album art designer Katie Hawes put together a stunning new promo video for the tour using stop motion animation. Automelodishared it yesterday on Tiny Mix Tapes.
"Automelodi... has both a deep understanding of the sonics of music... and a knack for melody and hooks. It is icy, but imbues these songs and arrangements with a lot of feeling."
"The LP... is arguably the project’s strongest to date, featuring a series of tracks that pushes the cold synth revival to the edges of perfection."
