After sharing her debut solo single ‘MENACE MINIMALE’ at the end of last year, Montreal based multidisciplinarity artist Annie-Claude Deschênes has announced her debut album LES MANIÈRES DE TABLE will be released this Spring via Italians Do It Better + Bonsound. Today Deschênes is sharing the second single from the record, ‘PHONES’.
The track is a standard call for a restaurant reservation that turns into an anxiety attack. A reflection on the absurdity of good manners that sometimes lead us to rigidity and over-politeness. The robotic rhythms, made from interference noises and ringtones, punctuate the conversation while the repetitive bass line accentuates this hymn to alienation.
