leilajepensebien If David Byrne and Johnny Marr decided to make a record with Bedouin Soundclash, it would probably sound something like this.
For the audacity of the vocalist and the effective simplicity of the music, it's a yes for me. Favorite track: Parents.

about

Né à Bordeaux en 2013, Sweat Like An Ape ! développe un set à l'urgence effrenée où l'énergie punk s'allie à une pop lumineuse et dansante. Bien qu'on y sente une influence anglo-saxonne (de par, en partie, les origines du chanteur, Sol Hess), les quatre garçons ont plaisir à fricoter avec le groove, que ce soit celui de James Chance ou du roi nigerien Sir Victor Uwaifo. Amoureux de climats épais, ils n'hésitent pas à y injecter cependant une dose d'intrigue et d'intensité.
Ayant chacun une belle expérience scénique avec divers projets musicaux actuels et passés (ainsi que dans d'autres domaines tels que la bande dessinée, les arts visuels, le scénario...), ils prennent leur nom au pied de la lettre, et livrent des lives où la sueur et la danse sont à l'honneur.

Leur premier album, Sixty Sinking Sailing Ships, est sorti en février 2015 chez Platinum Records (Rubin Steiner, Shiko Shiko, Tiger Bell, Powersolo, Funken...)."

"Un groupe international, au groove loufoque, possédé et prenant. (...) Sombre comme une dernière danse avant l’Apocalypse et lumineux comme la libération des corps." LES INROCKS

"Ce quatuor de rock prêt à danser déferle afin de restaurer légitimement le leadership bordelais en matière d'énergie brute." LONGUEURS D'ONDES

"Ces neuf titres ne demandent qu’à exploser d’avantage en live, à se lâcher de manière encore plus déraisonnée. Les filles vont devenir folles et les garçons risquent de pogoter comme jamais !" ADECOUVRIRABSOLUMENT

-----

ENGLISH:

This is Sweat Like An Ape !'s very first studio album. Their music evolves in that special place where the urgency of punk and the sparkle of pop and dance music cross paths. Although certain new-wave and post-punk influences are unquestionable, these four boys like to mingle with all kinds of groove, be it that of the nigerian king Sir Victor Uwaifo, or the funk-punk of James Chance.

As well as having alot of experience with bands past and present, the members of the band also excel in other domains such as those of graphic novels, visual arts, video-work and script-writing and thus enjoy injecting a sense of intrigue and mystery into their repertoire. In an avalanche of frenetic piercing guitar riffs and intense grooves, their live shows indisputably live up to the bands name.

A year after being formed, this first album, Sixty Sinking Sailing Ships was released in the beginning of February 2015 on Platinum Records.

« An international band endowed with crazy, possesed and absorbing grooves... As dark as a last dance before the Apocalypse, and as radiant as the absolute freeing of the body. » LES INROCKUPTIBLES

Track Name: Swim
I roamed around the city
asking every old lady
what I should do with your love
what should I do with your love?

Boy, you gotta swim in that love
let yourself drown in that love
you gotta dive in that love
don't think, just sink in that love

So here I am at your door
begging at your feet on your floor
won't you come out for a swim?
won't you come out for a swim?

I wanna swim in your love
I wanna dive in that love
let myself drown in that love
don't think, just sink in that love
Track Name: Brand New Shoes
I just wanna go, I just wanna go
just want to go to the disco
just to see you dancing
oh girl, I could go sleepwalking
I'll just wait here at the bar
hoping that I'm just not to far
for you to see my new shoes, my laidback moves, and my charms

My brand new shoes,
my laidback moves
and my charms

I just wanna go, I just wanna go
just want to go to the disco
and watch the laser lights bouncing
on and off those big beats pounding
oh I could go on and on
on how you danced to those songs
and didn't even see my brand new shoes, my moves, my charms

My brand new shoes,
my laidback moves
and my charms

I just wanna go, wanna go..
... to the disco!
just to see you dancing
girl, I could go sleepwalking
we'll dance 'till the morning breaks
I will try everything that it takes
for you to see my new shoes, my laidback moves and my charms

My brand new shoes,
my laidback moves
and my charms
Track Name: Lovely
She said that I'm lovely
well isn't that nice
she said that I'm lovely
well isn't that nice
she said that she'd keep me warm
all day and night
all through the winter
all day and night

She said that I'm lovely
well isn't that nice
she said that I'm lovely
well isn't that nice
she said "Oh boy, you're so cute
and such a hoot
do you think I could keep you
I promise I'll feed you

And every single night
we watch Meatloaf sing
on the Rocky Horror Picture Show
as we wait for the spring
it's the coolest thing I've ever seen
Track Name: Ape
She makes me sweat like an ape
a god damn filthy big ape
She makes me sweat like an ape
a god damn filthy big ape
and when I sweat like an ape
she makes me shiver and shake
she makes me quiver and quake
she makes me sweat like an ape
Track Name: Parents
Honey your parents, well they're kinda weird
meeting your daddy was worse than I feared
and girl your sister has this look in her eye
that makes me think I shouldn't have moved in
I'm so bloody flipped by you grandma's grin

Oh woman your mother she's...
oh girl your daddy he's...
and even your sister has this look in her eye
so listen up love, I'm not gonna stay
to hell with it baby, I'm goin' away

Looking at your mother just made me sick
talking to your brother must be some kind of trick
and there's no space at all between your sister's eyes
I gotta admit, it's not going well
I couldn't even choose between your place and hell

And woman your mother she's...
oh girl your daddy he's...
and even your sister has this look in her eye
so listen up love, I'm not gonna stay
to hell with it baby, I'm runnin' away
Track Name: City Lights
I woke in your bed
the stoned city lights above our heards
the angels started to cry
with the crazy idea that one of us might
say goodbye

The salt on our lips
the taste of sixty sinking sailing ships
I kept my eyes open wide
just to make sure that you were right here
on my side

As the blood rushed to our cheeks
we held our tongues to paralyzed to speak
of the thoughts that raced through our minds
eternally seized by the cold city wind that blew
down our spines
Track Name: Letter
I got your letter and I read it and I threw it away
Track Name: Films
In the spring
in the spring you brought ten acres of wood
right to my door
and in the winter you grew flowers
pink flowers
right at my door

and you came in and we watched films made in '93
films that we both knew, that we'd both seen
films made for you and me

In the spring
in the spring you brought white chocolate and beer
right to my door
and in the winter you grew flowers
more flowers
right at my door

and you came in and we watched films made in '93
films that we both knew, that we'd both seen
films made for you and me
