Découvert un peu par hasard grâce à un premier ep posté sur le net il y a deux ans, on n’apprend l’identité de The Acid qu’en février 2014. La magie de The Acid EP opère donc à l’aveugle. Leur musique ressemble à leur rencontre, étonnante. Trois personnalités, trois univers différents : il y a Adam Freeland, Dj et producteur anglais d’électro, Steve Napela dont le temps est partagé entre ses activités de producteur, compositeur, et professeur de musique numérique, et le chanteur producteur indie australien installé à L.A Ry x.

Le jeu du feu et de la glace, les beats doucereux et la rage neurasthénique suffisent à séduire. Nouvelle et captivante, leur musique est faite d’impulsions de basses, de longs vrombissements surgissant au milieu de plages de synthé délicates, le tout sur des bruits de rue, d’oiseaux et de freins de bicyclettes. Envoûtant. Métal, ouate, bois : les éléments et les sonorités se mélangent, se transforment et donnent finalement naissance à une atmosphère unique.

Leur premier album Luminal est sorti en juillet 2014.

 

English

The Acid started as a project by three artists who had come together by an incredibly fortuitous chance encounter. The EP first emerged online earlier last year and was shared quietly by the band, but the music was so immediately captivating, so markedly different, that word spread fast and quickly formed a life of its own.

The Acid came together from three separate worlds. They are globe trotting, Grammy nominated DJ & Producer Adam Freeland, creator of subversive crossover hit ‘We Want Your Soul’, spearhead of a scene and label boss of Brighton’s Marine Parade Records; Californian Polymath Steve Nalepa, whose time is split as a producer, composer, professor of music technology, and Ableton expert who devises live rigs for acts such as Drake and The Weeknd; and Australian, LA based, artist and producer Ry X, whose ‘Berlin EP’ was released on Swedish label Dumont Dumont and later Infectious in 2013 to softly bubbling acclaim, and who, with his other alter ego as one half of Howling.

Ry and Adam, who had initially met in Australia several years prior, ran into each other at a mutual friend’s party in LA last year. They found common ground in Ry’s recent Berlin underground music adventures and started hanging out, experimenting with song ideas and recording sketches on their iPhones as they went. They fast realised their writing styles coalesced into an exhilarating new form. As luck would have it, Adam had studio time booked with his mate Nalepa the day after their meeting. Having birthed EP opener ‘Animal’ in the first 24 hours, it took a mere nine days more to write the rest of the astounding ‘The Acid EP’.
