Roster / Marc Smeesters
Some albums are born in between seasons, when things are fragile but regenerating with strength. Recorded in Paris, Eugénie Alquezar and Peter K's "Disaster Serenades" are a summit of darkness, an eminently nocturnal album that will keep spinning on the record deck on sleepless nights of love debacle.
An aristocratic rock'n'roll, freed and hand crafted, but generous with raw power, and dangerous tensions. Some evoked Polly Jean Harvey, The Pretenders or Karen O in an attempt to establish a comparison but let's rejoice because Eugénie and Peter rekindle Die Haut's surly efficiency.
It's not garage, it's not pop, it's not punk, but all that combined to an explosive and sensual effect. With the asset of a singer with a versatile and intense voice.
