about

Did you ever used to scare yourself to sleep? Here’s betting that Raoul Sinier did. Fitting with the Edward Gorey-esque illustrations of childlike urban macabre that are Raoul’s signature in his line of visual art, the music of “The Melting Man” comes from a dark, exciting, and pervasively innocent place. The City of Lost Children dreams of spiriting away near a warm fire, while the rain from a black thunderstorm slams the harsh tin roof above them.

“We Fly” enters dreamland through a sinister dusk that showcases Raoul’s surprisingly calm vocals. Having covered Thom Yorke’s “Cymbal Rush“ on his last solo release, Raoul unleashes a similarly personal and beautiful crescendo, as noisy guitars bully their way through the fragile sing-song refrain into “We Fly part 2”. Following a vocal coda, “All Night” is another nightmare, this time in an electro vein. Finally, the title track quivers out under further washes of distorted organ. Yes, this is The Human League spending the night in a haunted house.

about

Raoul Sinier Paris, France

Raoul Sinier is without doubt a unique artist.
He juggles music, illustration and animation with a freewheeling talent.
His music captures emotions and liberates the listener, enables their penetration into the very sophisticated musical universe of the musician.
But beyond the fury of monsters and the screaming music is the exacerbated sensitivity of a demanding individual…

Track Name: We Fly
You're just a piece of a big mess, a big chunk of junk that builds itself.
The rust on your body feeds the germs in your head, everything goes round.
Don't look to this horrible noise, you might see a tiny head.
The world is a grape of small indescribable faces, useless and blank.

We fly, above the crowd.
We fly, above the clouds.
We fall, like anything else.
We fall, despite our empire.

Outside the loop, we fly, we slide, at the speed of light.
We have strange bones and skin, everything has a price.
From the sky, we watch our kind, we laugh and sometimes we cry.
Arms, foot, jaws, tongue and blood, you can try, but there is no way, for you to reach us.

We fly, above the crowd.
We fly, above the clouds.
We fall, like anything else.
We fall, despite our empire.
Track Name: All Night
As I'm waiting for this little thing to clear the way.
My body is boiling when my mind is making up some useless ghosts.
All at once, a path appears, she's waiting and I'm on my way.
And we fuck all night.
Track Name: The Melting Man
I am waiting for this girl in this bar, this place is warm, huge and slow.
A man is standing there, holding still for quite some time now,
out of place, and out of synch, no one pays attention.

And suddenly, he's taking a deep breath and starts to melt.

All those guts and raw material are getting through the floor,
and soon enough, it's back to normal again.

I wonder if she would have liked to see this.
