Alfa Matrix welcomes another legend to its roster: TRISOMIE 21
After collaborations with acts like FRONT 242, LEAETHER STRIP, ANNE CLARK or yet MENTALLO & THE FIXER, Belgian label Alfa Matrix (www.alfa-matrix.com) is proud to announce the signing of another cult electronic band: TRISOMIE 21.
Formed in 1980 by the Lomprez brothers, the French act TRISOMIE 21 belongs to the legendary pioneers of the cold electronic music movement together with luminaries such as FRONT 242, NEON JUDGEMENT , THE YOUNG GODS, etc. Since their first releases, their music often brought comparisons to the cold wave movements lead by bands like THE CURE, JOY DIVISION, DURUTTI COLUMN, etc.
From their prolific discography (including unmatchable albums like "Le Repos Des Enfants Heureux", "Passions Divisées", the classic "Chapter IV", "Million Lights", "Works", etc.), we will all definitely remember timeless hits like "The Last Song" or yet "La Fête Triste".
Through their impressive discography, the French duo managed to design their very own music style often described as cold wave electronic haunted by a dark soul and also characterised by the singer's unique vocal tone coupled with their unmatchable sense for touching deep melodies.
After seven years of impenetrable silence aside for some scarce compilation appearances, TRISOMIE 21 surprised everyone by giving a new sign of life through a remix for the French mega pop stars of INDOCHINE in 2003, and by releasing their brand new studio album "Happy Mystery Child" the year after. These bold new moves marked in stone the strong and impressive return of the French cold-wave cult band TRISOMIE 21 on the forefront of the scene. While revealing a more mature song-writing approach, more polished and refined melodies and strengthened choruses, the soul of the band had remained intact to the ultimate pleasure of their faithful fanbase of the early days.
Thanks to the band's open-minded attitude and the fresh and modern tonality of this new album, "Happy Mystery Child" was also released in various remix forms. Another brilliant move that allowed T21 to conquer new fans and to find their way through the newest e-clash and electro/techno movements via remixes by artists like David Caretta, The Hacker, Paul Kendall, Millimetric, The Horrorist, Lady B, etc.
After lots of touring across the world through Brazil, Spain, Germany, Belgium, France, etc., TRISOMIE 21 are currently completing their new studio album for their new label, Alfa Matrix, who will before that, release a special 25th anniversary release that will not only include the "rendez-vous en France" CD, a best-of live album from their last tour, but also a special vintage unreleased song collection and special T21 fan-goodies ,the whole available on various limited editions formats.
