We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of CARNE’s new song “Northern Light” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s upcoming album Modern Rituals, which is scheduled to be released on February 16th. The album is co-produced by Vox Project (FR), Poutrage Records (FR), No Way Asso (FR), Ker Mess Noar (FR), Dingleberry Records (DE), Shove Records (IT) and Drown Within Records (IT).
“A downward trip to the opposite side of our own reality. ‘Northern Light’ is about the vastness of things and the way it can alter your perception. It was written after a trip to some very isolated places and somehow is the continuation of this trip after we got back. We usually stick to more daily related topics but this track definitely relies on the psychedelism and the imagination this experience inspired us.”
The french duo comes back with a new album, Modern Rituals, dwelling deeper into the urban blend of noise and sludge already settled on their previous release, Ville Morgue.
This new record expresses all their skepticism and unease towards a society where sarcasm and mediocrity became criteria of appreciation if not values to be defended at all cost. A society that constantly and repeatedly broadcasts its own decay, drowning masses in a sea of ignorance and ready-made reflections. Modern Rituals marks on a new step in Carne’s methodical research of more darkness, loudness and somber psychedelism.
The repeated collaboration with Marion Leclercq (Mütterlein, Overmars) brings a new approach and tighten the ropes around the malaise pictured here (on “The End of Us” and “Lord Less”).
