LES LIGNES DROITES
Share new video "Est-ce qu'on prend le temps"
taken from their EP Heusden Zolder
The Parisian band share a new video for the track "Est-ce qu'on prend le temps" , this psychedelic ballad suggests and opens more than it states. Heady drums, continuous bass, deep and disturbing voice... Two ruptures breaking up the steady flow of the track.
The clip's images evokes the wanders, the disagreements of Science - the memory, the transmission, life against entropy. Do we take the time/ Est-ce qu’on prend le temps ? This question resonates today in a special way...

After “Pour que la nuit passe”, released in 2015, and “Les Humains” in 2016, the Heusden Zolder EP heralds a new album for the autumn of 2020.
This EP contains four tracks, four journeys connected through shared textures (prominent snare drums, continuous bass lines ...): “Est-ce qu’on prend le temps” (Do we take the time), a heady psychedelic ballad led by serious, ominous vocals, “Rêve Avéré” (Dream turned out), a cold-rock track that gets straight to the point, “Pliages” (Folding), a pop-kraut track with two faces and “Heusden Zolder”, experimental pop with Twin Peaks style bass underscoring melancholic
synths and melodic vocals.
On stage, Les Lignes Droites (guitar, bass, drums, synth, vocals) deliver a driving live set, infused with raw energy, rumbling synth waves and sonic implosion.
