London trio Fassine have unveiled a new video for their latest track Palio, taken from their soon-to-be-released second album Gourami which is out on 28 July.
Lyrically dark and musically complex, Fassine’s sound has a hint of Trent Reznor’s influence and sits alongside the cinematic, lyrical qualities of UNKLE and the minimalistic tone of Berlin-era Bowie. Their aesthetic encompasses the oppressive, cold and austere atmosphere of 1970’s and 80’s British TV drama, inviting the listener to enter the group’s stark, cold world.
Theirs is very much a cinematic sound, so it’s not surprising their songs have featured on a number of high-profile American TV drama’s including Sky Atlantic’s The Following, Fox’s Lucifer, and Sony’s The Art Of More. And if you like this kind of complex, beautifully-crafted stuff, check out previous track Gold too.
Catch Fassine today and tomorrow when they perform live at Manchester’s Night & Day (21 July) and at the Sebright Arms in London (22).
