The Einstein Tremolos story starts off with the meeting of a young guy and his fuzz pedals from Eastern France and convicted punk jazz terrorists. This triggers a psychedelic run with multiple influences such as indie, krautrock and post punk, guided by the need to write music together for studio and live purposes.
The band has released two self-produced EPs and has played numerous gigs throughout France for the past few years. In 2013, we focused on the preparation of our debut album “Rallies” mixing shorts songs with long instrumental pieces that may suggest court rallies in a pretty old 1980s TV set.
The first two EPs got extensive reviews from specialised media and webzines. One track was even used for a TV commercial (Agatha brand). At the end of 2013, the band was selected with 49 other artists out of 5000 pre selected bands to audition for a France Inter radio show, performing 2 album tracks: Pacadis A Dit and Ivan Lendl.
The record is self-produced. Mixing and mastering are now finalised. While we all took part in these processes, we also got help from Vincent Fraboulet (Da Brasilians, Melodium, Third Side...) and Florent Bobet who is currently working with Steve Albini at Electrical Audio, in Chicago.
The album artworks, as well as the video teaser, are the work of Guillaume Cottet.
The 4 band members are Simon Maller, Christian Berg, Xavier Guéant and Pierre Tanguy.
Simon was studying at Ircam (Institute of Musical/Acoustic Research and Coordination) when he met the punk jazz band Pelayo run by Xavier, Christian and Pierre.
Christian is the Irish member. He played a few years with Morviscous (Trestle Records) in London before moving to Paris where he started the Pelayo project.
Xavier is a multi-instrumentalist influenced by psychedelic rock and improvised music. He also plays in De La Jolie Musique and Myra Lee.
Pierre studied electroacoustic music at GRM (Music Research Group) of Radio France. He currently works in different multidisciplinary projects.
