A Cold Decade
is the third studio album issued by the French-Brazilian
band 3 Cold Men set up by Franck Lopez, vocalist (former
member of the French minimal wave cult band Opéra
Multi Steel), Alex Twin, keyboards (Wintry, Pecadores,
Individual Industry) and Maurizio Bonito, programmings
This new 10-track opus, mixed and produced by Martin
Bowes of Attrition is a bit more intimate and minimalistic
than the two previous albums (The Three Cold Men et
respectively issued in 2004 and 2008. A Cold Decade
is a deep come-back to the roots of the early 80’s
electro pop and a kind of special tribute to John
Foxx, a long-time source of inspiration for the three
members of the band. It will be possible to notice,
from track to track, some references to certain songs
from Metamatic, among many others….
Vintage sounds of keyboards and rhythm boxes create
an electro retro wave style.
It’s the very first time that 3 Cold Men songs
are mixing French and English texts.
The French lyrics have been written by Patrick L.
Robin (Lead singer of Opera Multi Steel). They confer
to the album a kind of surrealistical/hermetical mood.
The English lyrics have been written by Franck Lopez.
and Maurizio Bonito.
The visual identity of the band has been
totally renewed by the young Brazilian designer
Alan Cassiano. He realized an artwork inspired by
the visions he got while listening to the 3CM songs.
His drawings and paintings, digitally reworked,
create a very personal neo XIXth century style,
influenced by 3D art and sometimes very close to
video game backgrounds.
The limited edition comes with a bonus
cd including 13 remixes of different tracks of the
album performed by several Brazilian and European
artists from the electro scene: Marcelo Gallo, Lagrima
Negra, Nahtaivel, Moritz Shoenermann, Florence Foster
Fan Club, Torment, Mechanical Moth, Von Richthofen,
Novastorm, Peter Elliott, People Theatre, Franz
Hémor and a cover of Mad World, a song by
Tears for Fears.
