"Up Up Up - The Other Colors"

[…] Le mot Up lorsqu’on le prononce est souffle court, souffle total que les lèvres concluent d’une labiale définitive. Mot soufflé, mot incarné… définitif répété pour repousser l’irrémédiable… sont quelques-unes des règles de la prosodie savante propre à Möör, qui nous invite à la suivre dans un jeu tourbillonnant de métamorphoses et de mutations verbales, déclinées d’une voix tour à tour charnelle, lascive, heurtée, brusque, volontaire, altérée. […] - INFERNO - Camille Hamaouch


"Up Up Up - The Other Colors"

[...] La voix de Marie Möör s’accompagne d’une pop électronique abstraite de Laurent Chambert qui crée une atmosphère lynchienne. Tel Dédale, il construit l’album en un parcours inextricable pour enfermer à jamais le monstre pris au piège. En effet, les même textes de Marie sont repris et traités totalement différemment, de telle façon que l’on ne s’en rend pas compte la première fois. Ni la deuxième d’ailleurs. - AXESS CODE - Freak


"Up Up Up - The Other Colors"

[...] "Up Up Up" est un album rare dans le paysage français, osé et éminemment personnel, le genre d’œuvre qui vous plonge dans une volupté onirique, érotique et mystique macérant et coulant dans les veines telle la Fée Verte. - PREMONITION - Yannick Blay


"Up Up Up - The Other Colors"

[...] Chambert is an expert, sometimes clinical, soundscaper, heavily informed by industrial and electro pop but also whole swathes of dance and electronic music history. On previous album 361, the ultra-poppy ‘Rendez-Vous’ was a standout but here the perkiest songs (the aforementioned title track, ‘In The Cage’) are the least satisfying. Up, Up, Up is at its best when Möör gets to sigh and implore over more free-floating mood pieces. ‘L’appel’ is particularly impressive, with its kettle drum rolls, cymbal splashes and startling jump cuts, while ‘Volutes’ opens with just Möör’s intoning ‘volupté’ (again) set to the sound of buzzing bees, to disconcerting effect. Best of all is when, as on 'Je Veux', Möör’s already fragmentary vocal parts are further processed, sliced to ribbons, pitched up or down, looped around themselves, linguistic expression revealed as a hall of mirrors. Often it’s as though Möör is trying to use language against itself, to shatter it. - ROCKFORT - David McKenna

Bio

The Other Colors is a French experimental electronic band with Marie Möör and Laurent Chambert, since 2007.

French singer and songwriter, Marie Möör collaborated with Barney Willen on some new wave 45s during the 1980s (Pretty Day).She collaborated also with Jean-Louis Murat (1998) and Christophe (2001) with "J’aime l’ennui", "La Man" (single of the album "Comme si la terre penchait" and - in 2008 - "Wow wow wow" (interprété par Isabelle Adjani) and "Odore di femina" (album "Aimer ce que nous sommes").

Classically trained in piano and with a passion for Visual Arts, Laurent Chambert then studied Fine Arts at l’École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Saint Etienne (Ensba), France. His approach to musical composition and visual creations is strongly influenced by a spatial dimension, which in its infinite possibilities can make sound exist as an independent component. The sounds Laurent Chambert produces are usually found through research, often with the help of electronic machinery or computer assistance. Laurent Chambert won the Qwartz Electronic and New Music Awards 2008 (Expérimentation/Recherche) - Suspense, 2007 (album).

Marie Möör and Laurent Chambert knew how to combine research on words, feelings, and on sound, the tessitura also, giving birth to an electronic and literary music, proof that these two are not incompatible.
