Swiss groove kings ‘L’Eclair’ are releasing their 2018 album ‘Polymood’ on CD and it is an album that immerses the very soul of the listener. L’Eclair are prepared to make people dance! After a year working on these new songs and perfecting their Swiss Groove on any stage they could, L’Eclair took their guitars and shitty old synths to Jasper Geluks Tone Boutique studio in Haarlem, Netherlands, where he laid down the smooth sounds of the Allah Las, Jacco Gardner and Eerie Wanda.
Born out of hazy nocturnal walks around London during the Winter of 2015, L’Eclair initially took form as a duo consisting of Sébastien Bui and Stefan Lilov, who conceived of the band for months before coming back to their homeplace of Geneva, Switzerland where their muse was eagerly awaiting them. The groove was their aim but they needed a bigger band to accomplish it. Long times friends and brother, Elie Ghersinu and Yavor Lilov joined the band, respectively on bass and drums, and not so long after, Quentin Pilet on percussion and Alain Sandri on keyboards & cowbell rounded out the current lineup.
'Polymood' is a further expansion on L’Eclair’s quest to channel and honor their Afro-Disco, Kosmische, and early House 70s influences: an eclectic mix of funk, afro disco, jazz, psychedelic and krautrock. And what we end up with is a collection of timeless Swiss Groove™ music—inspired by William Onyeabor, French band AIR, Piero Picioni, Sly Stone and CAN’s ‘Future Days’—bringing euphoric dance to the human machine while it perseveres in its never-ending search for the soul. A must have for the collection!
