Les Discrets have to be one of France's most beautiful acts and best kept secrets that started sparkling since the split with the rising force Alcest. Fursy Teyssier and Winterhalter of Amesoeurs fame, with the second one partaking in the drumming sector as a member of Alcest as well, complete the band along with Audrey Hadorn. So it's not the first time both of them work with Neige, in fact they are much closer than just a split and in my mind this makes those three acts a family, at least in sound matters.

  A breath of fresh (and autumnal) air.

  I love the cover art. I can't remember his/her name but they're great. Did the last Alcest one too I believe. I really liked this band's first EP, I don't think I've listened to this one very much, if at all.

It's the mainguy Fursy. He also did covers for Amesoeurs, Drudkh's Handful of Stars, Agalloch's wooden box, the last Alcest too.
I just received the artbook version of this record and it's looking good ^^

You can stream the splits on Prophecy Productions' YouTube channel, in case you didn't know that.

Other material consists of older versions, and well, older material. Check "Urban Disease".

I recall the girl does a huge part of the lyrics. That's not really a big reason but there you go...

I only heard her on 2 songs. But then I can't seem to focus on this album, so I might keep missing her.
