Somewhere in between formal minimalism and aesthetic extravaganza, My Own Private Alaska impresses by being authentic. Merging the spectres of Chopin and the crescendos of Will Haven, their music appears at times captivating, gloomy and abrasive. Architects of a fragile and imposing universe, the three sitting musicians have gathered momentum since their creation in 2007. In the aftermath of a successful collaboration with producer extraordinaire Ross Robinson, the band has captured new ground imprinting their enigmatic formula to a broadening audience. The fascination of this French trio unfolds in a space haunted by melancholy piano chords, cathartic screams and the hypnotic pulse of a collective identity. A rapture tainted by madness, beauty and despair. Their sound represents a unique opportunity to dig into a captivating film noir synchronizing your cardiac palpitations to the conscience of a band that defies easy labelling.
