Les Discrets

Ariettes Oubliées... - 2012

Septembre Et Ses Dernières Pensées - 2010

Origin Point:

Sounds Like:
Shoegaze, Post Rock, Post Metal, Melancholic Rock, Metalgaze

Emerging from the same blackgaze circles as Alcest and Amesoeurs, Les Discrets is a musical project that is similarly difficult to categorise. Their sound ranges from lush, acoustic folk passages through to brittle black metal riffs and post-metal wall-of-sound crescendo, all the while suffused with a haunting vocal style winding somewhere in the mix.

To listen to their music, simply click on the album covers to be taken to their respective pages.

Now, I know the discussion of music can be an emotionally charged subject for some people, but I'm not claiming that anything is better than anything else. This is no more than a soap-box for me to promote music that I enjoy; maybe you'll like it, maybe you won't. That's fine.

If you've any recommendations based on this artist, or wish to promote some music that you yourself enjoy, please do so in the comments. Maybe I'll end up enjoying something enough to feature it myself.
