L’Épée, the band that consists of Emmaunelle Seigner (Ultra Orange & Emmanuelle), Anton Newcombe (The Brian Jonestown Massacre) & Lionel & Marie Liminana (The Liminanas) released their debut album ‘Diabolique’. The album is hazy psych at its best, filled with summervibes, trippy guitarwork and excellent vocals bij Emmanualle. Some of you may know Emmanuelle from her roles in Frantic (1988), Venus In Fur (2013), and Bitter Moon (1992) (all directed by her husband, Roman Polanski). With a supergroup like this the expectation are high, well, they succeeded! ‘Diabolique’ is absolutely stunning.
