Bandicoot collects the best of a generation marked by the poetry of Dylan or the poetry raised by John Cale. Its sound, timeless and melancholic, becomes the perfect soundtrack for an uncertain present. This renowned band, especially for their live shows, now presents their new single: Dark Too Long, in Libertine, where we again find elements as important as their euphoric post-punk and krautrock sound, through glamor and sensuality art -pop, right from the start.
Bandicoot has earned a fierce reputation, thanks to its raucous and overflowing live shows that swirl euphorically from post-punk and krautrock to the glamor and sexiness of art-pop at the touch of a note.
Through solid arrangements and solid programming, this single becomes a vehicle for reverential music that manages to spill out enough ideas from the artist himself to shake off the high era, allowing it to exist in its own right as credible. Bandicoot manages to admirably distill it into an album that turns out to be a close listener from start to finish.
Altogether, this single is as experimental as it is intense and addictive, it takes over oneself like sweet poison, while progressively transporting us, as few producers with a certain fluidity are willing to do. We don't know what the future holds for us, but we do know that this album is testimony to a turbulent and uncertain present, which will remain in our memory forever. For records like this, we can continue to fight for a better future.
