A CROSSROAD BETWEEN STYLES AND SOUNDS, AUCAN'S MUSIC IS BASED ON A UNIQUE ENERGY: SYNTHESIS OF THE OPPOSITES. DIGITAL AND ANALOG, ELECTRONICS AND ACOUSTIC SET, MELODY AND DISSONANCE OPEN TO DIRECT LIGHT, LEAVE THE LISTENER INSIDE OBSCURITY. GIFTED WITH A HAMMERING RHYTHMIC COMPACTNESS AND OF AN ACUTE TECHNICAL AWARENESS, THE BAND'S OBSESSIVE COMPOSITIONS CONTAIN NONETHELESS AN EMOTIVE TISSUE SPENT ON CROOKED ROADS A LONG TIME AGO, EMBODYING THE NEED TO YELL OUT, TO GET LOST IN ORDER TO DISCOVER YOURSELF.
