Mannequin Records is delighted to present the fourth full length of Polices des moeurs, the Canadian minimal synth duo formed by Francis Dugas and Manuelle Gauthier.
With PÉRIL, Police des moeurs expands its sound and ventures into mysterious, bewitchingand enigmatic landscapes. The foundation is still synthetic, minimal and punchy, relying on mechanical rhythm, powerful bass and catchy melodies, but it's now combined with more elaborate arrangements, punctuated by delicate textures and depthful laments with uncertain but sincere meanings.
Formed in 2010 in Montreal, Police des moeurs got noticed right from the start with its infectious and direct synth pop. The band has released several recordings, including Péril, their fourth full lenght album on Berlin's Mannequin Records. The Canadian group has performed in Mexico,
the United States, as well as in ten European countries, and has share the stage with The Damned, ADULT., TR / ST, Xeno & Oaklander, Automelodi, Essaie Pas, Xarah Dion, Duchess Says, to name a few.

I can't believe it's a 2020 album, it already feels like a century-old classics! It Is THE Bible's sequel! Side A starts off with just a solid material reminiscent of the previous LA work, but when a needle scratches near a finale of the same side A it blows you away with it's universal themes powered by escalating synths, vocals stronger than death and poetry larger than air. The last time i was touched by such an emotional crescendo was when I listened to Portishead. I can't freeze anymore... Symbolic ‡ Tentacles

It is a remarkable stage from the 90's, but come full force into the modern era ,reminiscent of parties and home treachery adding to the indulgence of party favors. Moderate use and fantastic dance raves! cliffy9
