After the dark and melancholic convulsions of its studio album Nuit De Rêve (2011), Scratch Massive invites the listener to intimately explore new heights through the sublime images and existential travels presented in Day Out Of Days - the 2015 film by director Zoe Cassavetes. This intense musical duo has undertaken a veritable revolution, giving body and soul to their latest project. Day Out Of Days is a troubling and enraptured vision of "The California Dream" - the one that always seems to slip away at the last moment from under the feet of the film's disappointed heroine.
On this album, Scratch Massive trades in its somber ways and the dark beauty of its electronic odes for a new pop sensibility nourished by the grand air of the Pacific Ocean and the frenetic rhythm of a city that never sleeps. From the wide-eyed pop song "Turn Away" that opens the album, the new wave mirages that inspire the superb "Frolic Spleen" and "A New Deal" and the infectious magic of "Paris" (an electro-pop hit carried by the irresistible voice of Daniel Agust, former lead singer from Icelandic cult band GusGus), Day Out Of Days brings together an elegant, out-of-control bacchanal evoking dreams snuffed out by the stark realism of the daily grind, shady sunsets reflecting undetectable fears too heavy to bear.
Could this be the sound of "California Dreamin" under modernity's magnifying glass? Quite simply, with Day Out Of Days, Scratch Massive have made a modern electronic album, perfectly at ease with the influence of pop as a way to revisit and reexamine its clichés, its stylistic effects, and the hungry nostalgia for the 1980s. "Turn Away" features Tobias Buch.
