Following the release of their debut single "Introspection," Montreal-based rock trio Population II share "Il eu un Silence dans le Ciel" off of their upcoming album À La Ô Terre out October 30th via Castle Face Records. Louder Than War premiered the track, praising "mind-melting debut of hard psych freckled with punk sentiment, both old school and timeless...fluid, tough, and over-saturated, the album is bound to please fans of the label and new-comers alike."
Population II is able to break the barrier of language, using words as an accessory and the echoey voice ram the music without taking too much place, acting almost like another instrument, hypnotizing into a sort of long trance. The debut album was recorded in Montreal with the help of the producer and musician Emmanuel Ethier (Chocolat, Corridor, Jonathan Personne). With his background and experience, joining forces with the unapologetic instrument play of the band, they were able to let the blazing energy truly shine through the 10 songs composing this debut album.
"Avec lourdeur à travers des expérimentations,
Introspection est une immersion dans la tête de celui qui ressent l'énergie du Rock n' Roll à l'état brut couler dans ses veines pour la première fois.
Instantanément, vient le besoin de la transmettre et de l'amplifier.
With heaviness through experimentation,
Introspection is an immersion in the mind of one who feels the energy of raw Rock n 'Roll running through its veins for the first time.
Instantly, comes the need to transmit and amplify it."
