Paris-based experimental musician BADBAD will release her new EP 'MELANCOLE' on April 22nd, 2022. After four years of silence, BADBAD returns with a dark techno record marked by the quasi-obsessive search for superimposed and intertwined sounds built around the notion of breath. Breath manifests itself as a vibration, both physical and psychic, which gives the pace to the five tracks of this brutal but subtle record. 'MELANCOLE' is an intense listening journey that could easily bear comparison to the work of her contemporaries such as Puce Mary, Giant Swan or Pharmakon.
