Midnight Resistance

A 13 track electronic album (6m 30s) — released June 21st 2024 on Modulor

This is the The Toxic Avenger's fourth album. And undoubtedly the most solar, where his musical signature is the most accomplished, integrating all his influences, from kinematic electro to pop, from song to enjoyable replay of house 90's, from neo-classical piano revisited to the current synth-pop. An album where the technique is less conspicuous, but where the emotion is more simple and direct. It is also the most open of all his albums, with real pop singles assumed as the heady "Lies" (feat. Look Mum No Computer), the 80's nostalgic ballad "Mandala" (feat Ornette), or the pop song sweet bitter "Rent Boy" (feat Jay- Jay Johanson). The musical turn of Toxic Avenger is also reflected in the very emotional song "I Need You" the unifying power of the introductory song "Americana", captivating it "On Sight" while keeping a crunchy production on a few songs like "Midnight Resistance or "ЧЕРНОЕ ЛЕТО" (Black Summer in Russian), as markers for the continuity of the "Toxic" sound. One of the jewels of the album is the collaboration with Maxence Cyrin on the very delicate track "On My own". And the surprise of this album is to find Toxic Avenger singing himself to sing his first song, "Les Heures". Finally, two somewhat special guests come to close this album, the aerial and hedonistic participation of Simone on the track "Falling Appart" and the spoken and always offbeat flow of Diamond Deuklo on the aptly named

" L'Avenir d'Avant"" where the absurd here becomes an art.

His learning for over two years on modular synths guided his new research into sounds, making synthesizers more "alive", more organic. Finally, it is necessary to underline a real work of "sound surgeon" in the processing of the voices, complex but fluid in its rendering, adding again a strong melodic research always in the service of songs.
