Between post-punk and dark-rock, Varsovie is created in 2005 in Grenoble (France) by Arnault Destal (drums, lyrics, music, art direction) and Grégory Catherina (vocals, guitars, music). Since 2005, the band has released 5 albums + 1 EP and played live several times all over Europe. Varsovie’s 5th album 'Pression à froid', translated 'Under cold pressure', was recorded at Drudenhaus studio (Brittany) in January 2023. The visuals for the album were created by Greek artist Sotiris Lamprou. More direct and less introspective than its predecessor 'L'Ombre et la nuit', this new album explores shorter formats and new sounds, with the intervention of keyboards and a more raw general treatment. The lyrics tighten around more frontal images and dynamic double-bottom stagings. However, the identity of Varsovie remains intact. Still with French lyrics and on a tight, nervous, melancholic line, those 9 songs continue to reformulate the vertigos of our time through emblematic figures, crepuscular atmospheres and intimate crisis.
