A propos du disque

out on 30th of march 2018



« I want to explore the sonic memories deeply rooted in each of us, like a soundtrack of our lives and of our imagination »
This is how Alban Darche talks about his band L’Orphicube.

« Atomic Flonflons » takes a hard look in the mirror, as a way to speak to us all. The twelve new tracks get your mind looking for old photographs, and stories down memory lane.
Experiences and familiar places blurred by time, become dreamy as if they never existed. Each of us has built a story out of our own lives. The facts are as important as the fiction we fill the blanks with.
That is where « Atomic FlonsFlons » comes from.

Playing with genres, symbols and name-dropping (accordeons, 19th century melodies, Tango, Muzak, Ragtime…) through time and space; the album always clings to memory or a fantasy, whether it’s a European cabaret from the twenties, a Demy soundtrack or Betty Boop’s naughty wink.

Each tracks brings up the strangely familiar. Like a mirage, a game of mirrors and smoke, the straightforward path we’ve been led to is never like we expected it to be. Turning the listening experience into thrilling adventure.
All these recollections do not forget that what we remember the best is usually effortless like a foot stomping to a swinging pulse.

Let’s dance.
