After eight years exchanging with fellow musicians in various forms : quintet (Filiamotsa Soufflant Rhodes : Véronique Mougin, keyboards; Antoine Arlot, saxophones ; Essawabi Youssef, trombone), trio (Philippe Orivel : violin and keyboards), the french rock duo Drums/Violin Filiamotsa recorded his next album : “Like it is“, brings together all these musicians.
This new album, which keeps their rock, noise and psychedelic spirit, is a collection of English songs. This time, the legendary singer of dutch band The Ex (Touch & Go Records) : GW Sok deploys its melody.
The guitarist Olivier Mellano also brings his personal touch giving this disc a singular and sometimes orchestral dimension.
