Cold Spring presents:



Order / Media Links:    
LA BREICHE (“the witch”) features YAN AREXIS (Stille Volk / Sus Scrofa / Common Eider, King Eider / Coume Ouarnède), and PATRICK LAFFORGUE (Stille Volk / Sus Scrofa / Hantaoma). The two musicians are also the creators of the cult festival LHomme Sauvage, held in Midi-Pyrenees each year.

After their 2017 debut “Le Mal des Ardents” (Cold Spring), “Le Rite” opens a new door, with post-folk sounds close to post-rock, influenced by ancient music, with folk used in a modernist way. Dark, ambient and yet mystical… deep with grandiose landscapes.

The sound of La Breiche is situated at the crossroads of early music and dark ambient; ambient music, industrial music with a strong ritual dimension. Their electro-acoustic is music based on old instruments such as the hurdy-gurdy, mixed with analogue synths, field recordings, and ritual objects, taking a mystified look at nature, archaic societies, rites, beliefs and lores, animism.

Presented in a stunning 6-panel digipak with artwork by Dehn Sora.
