Released in March ‘Faint‘ is the remarkably assured debut single from young Belgian duo Beffroi that, according to Clash, “recalls the intensity of Portishead, while tumbling through a midnight realm entirely of its own design”.
Beffroi are a young Belgian duo, Camille (age 19) on vocals and Valentine (20 years) working the machines. Beffroi’s music aims to shine a black light on humanity’s darker aspects, it speaks of our faults, our weaknesses and our addictions. Valentine’s fractured electronic beats and atmospheric textures and Camille’s haunting vocals bring their world to vivid life, taking the listener on a violent feverish trip into the darkness at the heart of Europe.
The track is now streaming on Soundcloud along with the single’s b-side, ‘Swim‘.
