Mon ami mon frère
une modeste proposition en 2020

Neuf ans après son dernier concert en 2011 à Athènes, Clair Obscur réapparait de façon abrupte en 2020, le jour symbolique de Mardi Gras où le souverain est moqué, pour une proposition discographique qualifiée d’objet de lutte. Un hymne laconique, ironique et entêtant dans une France à la communication brouillée et à l’ambiance chaque jour davantage délétère. Le 25 février, le single 'Mon ami mon frère' et sa face B 'Ami ami' paraissent sur toutes les plateformes digitales et en téléchargement GRATUIT sur Bandcamp.

Mon ami mon frère (My friend my brother*)
a modest proposal in 2020

Nine years after their last concert in Athens in 2011, Clair Obscur reappear abruptly in 2020, on the symbolic day of Mardi Gras when the sovereign was mocked, for a discographic proposal qualified as an object of struggle. A laconic, ironic and heady hymn in a France with blurred communication and a more deleterious atmosphere every day. On February 25, the single 'Mon ami mon frère' and its B side 'Ami ami' are out on all digital platforms and FREE to download on Bandcamp.

Clair Obscur France

Of all the bands that animated the French cold wave and industrial scene of the 1980s, Clair Obscur is certainly one of those whose influence was most vivid beyond the borders of France.
