New band Krapp (from France) releases their debut album “A Void On A Cradle” on Fluttery Records. This duo create music influenced by different artists such as Zu, Portishead, David Sylvian, Alain Bashung, Bela Bartok or 31 Knots. Their music style might remind jazz, rock, electro, pop or classical music but they don't fit any of those categories.
This twelve pieces collection turns around poetry in English and in French that swings between surrealistic tales and non-sense joke. The almost kinetic sounds on this album approach both industrial music or ambient soundscapes where ordinary life objects take their place in the instrumentation as electronics, guitars, cello, saxophones, bass, piano or drums.
Imagine your kitchen plenty of ingredients, but all recipes you’ve tried are boring and you want to taste something new. Krapp's songs are results of this culinary-chemical experimentation. You can hear bits and pieces reminding jazz, rock, electro, pop, classical music. But the idea was not to fit in a category, but to explore, to experiment with sounds and create an original musical universe. Krapp enjoys using non binary rhythms and dissonant melodies. Drums are replaced by the chirping of crickets, or the crack of opening a can of coke. There is no limit in this sense in the music of Krapp. Lyrics can remind surrealist modern tales or non-sense jokes. All is fine as long as the word suits the music and evokes different meanings and feelings.Kevin Brosse (alias Mr K. ,bassist, lyricist and singer in many bands as ENGINe, Krabben in Lake, Out of Focus...) and Olga Svobodova (singer and saxophonist in Zel Wel, Strvfkjrb Beitobovitsch and Olgoj Korkoj) work on Krapp since 2008, sometimes helped by Naxoprods' musicians such as Cédric Bouvet (sax from heraclite), Elodie Nicolas (multi-instrumentalist and fine artist), Florent Garnaud (guitar from Flying Penguins and wateringcan) who performed on the album.
