New Noise Magazine is pleased to be bringing forth the exclusive premiere of the split by post-rock artists Elvyn Rhud & Alpha Du Centaure. This release is out on 09/28 via Pyrrhic Victory Records, but can be heard a day early below. This release pushes the textures of ambient rock a bit farther with a great focus on atmosphere from both bands.

Elvyn Rhud have an eerie presence in their songs while Alpha Du Centaure let their instruments bring out the narrative.

Encouraged and inspired by the French musical collective Jericorp, who described the band as “A gathering of Chris Isaak, lots of love and too much Cough Syrup, playing a Western movie soundtrack with some Brian Jonestown Massacre and other psychedelic formations echoes”, France’s Elvyn Rhud have just released their first recorded work: “People In Hampton Court Don’t Care About Dying”, a psychedelic anthem to the land they love, where they met two years before, London. The song was released initially to promote their first gig in south of France in late February with The Dead Mantra & Abraham Murder.

The band was born when first flatmates, then couple Leo and Cassandre started collaborating musically out of what was initially a solo project. Cassandre started adding percussion and vocals to Leo’s drone guitar and dark vocals, which completely altered the sound and direction of the project, described by former bandmate of Leo’s guitarist Michael Ridley as “Some sort of Morricone style Gainsbourgy Bluesy thing.”

They have been writing and composing in the deepest secrecy, as they absorb the sounds of those that inspire them such as Aqua Nebula Oscillator, The Oscillation, The Growlers, Palm Cross, Flavien Berger, Mouncey Street, and others.

The song came to Pyrrhic Victory Recordings’ ears who asked for more, building a cross Atlantic Ocean friendship and preparing the release of a new digital EP “Orange Is For Love”, due out soon on the label.
