People of Nothing

People of Nothing est un groupe de cold wave/ indie fondé en 2008 à Paris par Florian Chombart. Rejoint par 3 autres musiciens (bass, batterie/pad, synthé), le groupe affiche clairement ses influences du post punk des années 80, mais décide de ne pas en rester là, en oscillant entre des nappes de synthés cinématographiques et murs de guitares shoegaze et indus ; le groupe affirme un son anxiogène à la fois dur et mélancolique.

 

Cette vision amène le groupe a tourner dans les clubs parisiens, jusqu’aux clubs new yorkais (Delancey, Trash Bar…). Le groupe étant bien reçu par les music media et encouragé par des fans, Florian Chombart se consacre à la réalisation d’un album éponyme se composant de 8 chansons.

 

People of Nothing  a sorti son 1er single “A break to cry” en novembre 2013 sur Anywave. Le premier album sort en mai 2014.

People of Nothing is a cold wave/indie group established in Paris in 2009 by multi-instrumentalist Florian Chombart. Influenced by late 80s post-punk, the group’s sound oscillates between soaring, cinematic synths, industrial beats and shoe-gaze guitar. The driving force behind the group, Chombart recruited the talents of three other musicians, taking his apocalyptic vision to play in clubs in Paris and New York, where the group was well received by local audiences and media. Following this, Chombart set about recording the group’s eponymous debut album. Atmospheric and anxious, People of Nothing affirms a stark melancholic sound and lyrical intention. The resulting 8 songs are terse, seductive and tense; reflecting Chombart’s love of film soundtracks; from the minimalism of Arvo Part to the eerie isolation of Vangelis’ Blade Runner: an echo of romance in a post-industrial age.
