A gramophone turns lazily in the corner, as the smoke crawls low along the ceiling. Martini glasses and half smoked cigarettes smeared with lipstick, the click of heels on cobblestones on still winter nights. Lili Marlene sings of love as the waves crash upon the shore, and we hum to this tune with sweet whispers of bitter hearts.
Take 2 parts of 50′s lounge, one part Morricone, one part power-electronica, one part neo-loungecore, a twist of exotica and a dash of bitters. Shake well and serve with an afterthought of reverb! Bordel Militaires self-titled debut draws inspiration from classic film soundtracks, lounge and exotica artists, and iconic 60’s production techniques.
Featuring contributions from Boyd Rice and John Murphy, among others.
