Chat blanc records
March 2008

Voilà! is a piano , a guitar, a bass and a drum . It's also a glockenspiel , a crafted lapsteel , violins , a typewriter and a bunch of other monophonic instruments. But Most of all , Voilà! is a collective attempt to recreate emotions not describable by words only. Partly instrumental, they exploit the power of musical intruments combined with drowned vocals to recall such atmospheres. Their sound is comparable to bands like Pink floyd, Radiohead, Godspeed you! Black Emperor and Patrick Watson, yet conserving various influences from world music.

(from french)
«Voilà, although still unknown here, should be making waves soon. They play music half-way between Patrick Watson and Explosions and the Sky. Piano, guitar, bass and drum are assembled to create an unconventional melody.» Pascal Asselin - Chat Blanc Records

«The modern-jazz inspired instrumentation suits this dense music well with guitar, keyboards, bass, drums and two violins which probably contributed to obtain an encore, which is pretty rare for an opening act» Luc Proulx- Nord Info

This past year, the band has randomly toured Québec, playing in festivals like Antenne-A and Under the snow and following bands for a few gigs like Patrick Watson, where the necessity of recording an album was pointed out incessantly.

Voilà is presently recording at the breakglass studio ( Wolf Parade, Besnard Lakes, Patrick Watson, Malajube) with Jace Lasek (Besnard Lakes) and Dave Smith , the men behind most of montreal's indie scene.

2008 will be an important year for the band, while plans to relase a full-lengt record are being made.
