Formed in 2004, in Paris (France), Devianz, this five piece band, now delivering their long awaited second full-length album, “A Corps Interrompus” (With Interrupted Bodies). 13 tracks, one bonus and one top collaboration with Vincent Cavanagh of Anathema on the song called “Ton corps n’est qu’atome” (You’re Body is Nothing But Atoms), revels a wild, willing and extremely capable band which managed to blending sensitive, acoustic rooted European Rock with the energy, explosion and rawness of the American Indie and Post-Hardcore. But more further than another perfect sonic experiment, Guyom Pavesi, Benoît Blin, Pierre Labarbe, Vincent Rémon, and Charles-Vincent Lefèvre write and recorded 14 songs.
They sounds like a million different things – they consider themselves a possible result of a love-affair between At The Drive-In and Portishead – in each and every moment, but they actually like nothing else. In one moment you can think of Pearl Jam, Pink Floyd or Serge Gainsbourg, but in the very next second they might hit you right in your face like a furious Punk or Post-Hardcore horde.
From one moment to another, from one song to another, “A Corps Interrompus” it’s an intense and sensitive, sometimes darkly contorted journey where love collide with fury, and sentiments get expressed by music. Sad, but not melancholic, gentle, but not radio-friendly, this is sweet and tumultuous just like a marriage.
