Aucan

A crossroad between styles and sounds, Aucan’s music is based on a unique energy: synthesis of the opposites. Digital and analog, cleanliness and distortion, melody and dissonance, quietness and strongness arm free-fall structures, open to direct light, leave the listener inside obscurity.

A crossroad between styles and sounds, Aucan’s music is based on a unique energy: synthesis of the opposites. Digital and analog, cleanliness and distortion, melody and dissonance, quietness and strongness arm free-fall structures, open to direct light, leave the listener inside obscurity.

Gifted of an hammering rhythmical compactness, and of a deadly technical awareness, the band’s obsessive combinations contain nonetheless an emotive tissue spent on crooked roads long time ago, incarnate the need to yell out, to get lost in order to discover yourself. In 2008 they release their debut album on both labels Africantape (Hey!Tonal, Passe Montagne, Threesecondkiss) and Ruminance (Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Rachel Grimes, Cheval de Frise, Chevreuil).

After a year acrossEeurope, supporting mean international underground bands (Antipop Consortium, Zu, Sleeping people, Il Teatro Degli Orrori, DJ Rupture, Hey!Tonal) the band looks forward to a new European tour in February 2010, that will be followed by a long East/North European tour, in May 2010.

This winter Aucan is ready for a double release: Crisi 7” - split with Talking Dead Goats - will be out as a limited edition in January 2010, on Stiff Slack Records (Japan). A special, secret EP is coming out soon, on Africantape and Ruminance again, to introduce their brand new mix of dark ambient landscapes and dubstep broken riffs. Tune in… « hide
