GOOD LUCK IN DEATH
They Promised Us a Bright Future, We Were Content with an Obscure Past LP
Nahal 02 / FR / 2018
Behind the ironic-prophetic moniker of Good Luck In Death are the duo of Parisian electronic producer Paul Régimbeau and Lebanese artist and performer Charbel Haber. With the appropriately named 'They Promised Us A Bright Future, We Were Content With An Obscure Past' Good Luck In Death delivers an almost anti-futuristic and dreamlike manifesto that juxtaposes orchestrated minimalism against the luxuriance of dense melodic flights. Processed guitars played with the e bow, synthesisers and analogue machines casting shadows of their lazy kinetic journey, a dialogue in the strata of vaporous ambience. The musical drift blazing from East to West, the borders as blurred as the harmonies, modes, scales and emotions which give them shape and form. And through the waves of electric haze, emerging veiled from the dream, comes a prediction, a premonition, a prophecy, grainy and ecstatic, like a cloud of fire.
