Czech-based French duo Overland Inn have had a very productive couple of months (quite literally: they have just welcomed a new baby into the world this week – congratulations!) and the momentum and productivity continues unabated with the release later today of a new single through the inimitable Brisbane False Peaks label. We are very honoured to give you an early listen to ‘Le Hibou’ before it is made available through all the usual download and streaming sites.
Overland Inn’s trademark icy synths and celestial vocals feature again with a more upbeat and bubbling track that has heavenly spaces and gorgeous melodies delivered in their native French tongue. There is a sixties syncopated flow to this track that recollects the magic pop of the legendary chanteuse Mylène Farmer, before the duo divert the flow and wander off into an ambient reverie in the outro.
Formidable! Anticipation is building for the release of Overland Inn’s album ‘Proxima’ due for release in the new year.
Overland Inn are Etienne (Guitar / Machines) and Chloë (Voice / Keyboards / Machines) who recorded their first album Long Way Home in Portugal in 2010. They went to the UK to record new tracks and compiled them into a second album called Technicolor (2013), before they settled in the Czech Republic and released Between a Dog and a Wolf (2016).
