Music

Press


Not poppy, toe-tapping tunes, rather dark numbers, a cross between minimalist Hole and minimalist Siouxsie. It's kind of bleak, urban, but interesting enough to listen. - Bill Ribas


"Pascale plays with conviction in an effort to create a new template for female musicians." - M. Moallem


"Pascale's bleak songs are smart, passionate and brutally intimate." - Joshua Tanzer


A la Chrissie Hynde with the palladous metallic of Led Zeppelin, these rockers have something to say. With the incessant character of rhythms that mesmerize and energize, the music is catchy enough to demand attention. - Music-Tech.net


Pascale is the creative force, the gin to the guys tonic. - The Deli


Their songs are catchy with great lyrics. I've been humming their songs in my head ever since my first listen.
- Unsigned Band Web


Diabolique is a modern-day band for today's brand of eclectic indie rockers. "Uses of Disorder" is gritty, angst-ridden and poppy at the same time. - Shut Eye Records

Bio


Described by reviewers as "smart, passionate and brutally intimate," Diabolique has created a new template for female-fronted rock bands by adding a multi-cultural and multi-influenced twist to their music. On their debut cd Uses of Disorder, Diabolique unleashes a flurry of hypnotic grooves and buzz-saw guitars, combining the haunting lyricism of The Velvet Undergound with the sexy swagger of The Pretenders.

With their raw and smarting lyrics, Diabolique is willing to show themselves entirely to their audience, withholding nothing. This unique merging of undeniable command and molten vulnerability distinguishes Diabolique as the quintessential band for an injured generation struggling to define itself. Virtuosic, tight-fitting and dripping down your sleeve.
