Julienne Dessagne, better known as Fantastic Twins, will release a new album next month.
Two Is Not A Number chronicles a pair of imaginary twins from their birth, “across entwined lives and fates, via schizophrenic dreams, small dramas, and big tragedies.”
We’re told that it shares characteristics with the deep futurism of Carl Craig’s Landcruising, Underground Resistance’s cosmic electro, Boards Of Canada’s “uneasy hauntology,” Angelo Baldametti’s “uncanny suspense,” Andy Stott’s “stark machines,” the “sensual electronics” of Man Parrish’s Forbidden Overture, and Fever Ray’s “haunted, otherworldly voice.”
These musings are expressed “with assured clarity,” using a palate of icy deep techno, eerie soundtrack atmospherics, tranced-out dark wave and synth pop noir.
Fantastic Twins released Obakodomo, her first album, on Optimo Music in 2017—a soundtrack Dessagne created for a piece of contemporary dance.
