Taking advantage of the fact that they weren’t doing anything major as Air, Jean-Benoît Dunckel has pulled a new musical project out of his sleeve with a darker sound than his project with Nicolas Godin to which he owes his international fame. Aware that these new songs were crying out for a female voice with personality, the Frenchman ended up calling on Lou Hayter, until then the singer for The New Sins. Out of their artistic union comes Tomorrow’s World, a new project that, although originally intended for recording a single song, has ended up giving rise to eleven pieces that we will be able to hear on a debut LP slated for release sometime round March of 2013.
“These new songs are more abstract and much darker. When I do things through Lou it’s like an inspiration, the energy is not the same” Duckel has commented regarding this new venture. On the new angle, he added: “There is more femininity in the music, and also together we like to go into a dark mood. We have this new sound together”. If you want to find out firsthand how they sound, on 8th October they will release an advance EP on Naïve titled “ So Long My Love”.
