Life’s Decay

Although names say a lot about bands, Life’s Decay doesn’t quite give a voice to the beautifully dark, acoustic dystopia it resembles. The French duo tells the story of a universe set in a future steampunk Paris, weaving textures of industrial, ambient and neoclassical into its unique experimental pop sound, complete with soothing female vocals. The first track from 2008 album Eklaasera serves as a great introduction to this rich, involving world unlike many other you’ve come across with a scattering of violins, jangling pianos and some fairly unconventional sounding percussion.
