Back to the 90's when Alternative Rock & Grunge took the world by storm ! French-British power-trio A VOID unveils today "Newspapers", taken from their forthcoming second album "Dissociation" to be released later this year !
Fans of Hole, Smashing Pumpkins, The Breeders will praise them for sure !
The new video for "Newspapers" shows band members Camille, Marie & Aaron plying in the middle of a room covered in newpapers, wearing dresses made of the same material ! Mental health takes an important part of A VOID's thematic concerns.
In "Newspapers", singer/guitarist Camille evokes her experience of getting hurt as a projectionof another one's pain :"Instead of destroing myself, I decided to destroy everyone's ears ! It's about freeing yourself from your own conditioning, not knowing how to deal with it and losing yourself in your own liberation. The "weight" I'm talking about is the trauma, the societal constraints, the education, the pressure to be what the family and the people around you want you to be. When you finally walk away from all that, you're just lost because that's all you've ever known".
Born 1969, grew up with the NWOBHM sounds, musically educated with cult french magazines that were ENFER and METAL ATTACK, definitely nailed to the style when "The Number Of The Beast" by IRON MAIDEN was released... From 1982, it was clear life would never be the same ! Young & getting wild to the HEAVY sounds of SAXON, VENOM, BLACK SABBATH, MOTORHEAD, Young Fab also discovered thanks to school mates the NOISE, FILTH & FURY of Hard-Core/Punk bands like G.B.H, DISCHARGE, BROKEN BONES but also CRO-MAGS, BAD BRAINS, FUGAZI... and later on, through the 90's, everything that was ALTERNATIVE, EXPERIMENTAL, GRUNGE, INDUSTRIAL (SONIC YOUTH, NINE INCH NAILS, SOUDGARDEN, ALICE IN CHAINS)... Passion & curiosity grew up as years went by ... Fate was SEALED... no turning back ! No Music = No Life !
