On the eve of completing its first decade, the Brazilian post punk band Plastique Noir is back with a new
work: “24 Hours Awake”. Succeeding the albums "Dead Pop" (2008) and "Affects" (2011), this release
takes the band to a new level, where some challenges are before them.
The writing process began on the final stage of the previous album promotion, when the now former
guitarist Márcio Mazela was about to leave the lineup, which actually happened in July 2012. Two
months later, it was announced Deivyson Teixeira was going to be the bassist, leading Danyel Fernandes
to take the six strings and keeping Airton S – which, like Danyel, is a founding member – at the voices
and programmings.
Four tracks were half-written at that time: "24 Hours Awake," "Losing Halo," "Negatives" and "Secret
Admirer", all with a more retro/rock driven style. Satisfied with that hard-hitting sound, the trio decided
to invest in that line and not only rewrote fully those first compositions, but also developed a growing
and incessant job which, over the next two years, culminated in 20 tracks, all initially in demo format.
There, Plastique Noir found a more urgent and pulsating sound than the previous album, when they
prioritized a greater presence of synthesizers and cadenced rhythms. Some cuts in such extensive track
list finally resulted in a 16 tracks album, with 14 actual themes plus an intro ("My Drifting Flight") and a
finale ("Omnia", which brings percussion as the heartbeat of Deivyson’s newborn child, taken from an
ultrasound scan).
Although it contains more tracks than any other album of Plastique Noir, "24 Hours Awake" has a
running time in according to the 50 minutes average of the previous ones. Its songs run ripping and not
only in BPM, but with the rocker viscerality already pointed. It’s a minimalist album, but with more
layers and technical accuracy than any other they have ever launched. The paradoxes don’t stop there:
even though it hasn’t been planned as a conceptual work, the band could realize an undeniable presence
of symbols that refer to the urban loneliness, which made them decide to name it with the title of one
the songs. Not only the fast beat is back, but also a strong melancholy and romantic charge, as noted on
the tracks "Chariots" and "Gall Bladder (Rancor)". The despair and existential misalignment also take
place, as seen on "Tyrannosaur" and "Vésper" – their first composition in Portuguese. There’s still place
for a brief political commentary on "Torn Brazil" (which features Karolina’s voice, of the celebrated
Brazilian gothic duo Escarlatina Obsessiva) and aesthetic experimentation outside the gothic spectrum
on "Point Break".
Once more, Plastique Noir’s chosen atelier was Estúdio 746 at Fortaleza-CE, under direction of the coproducer
Jorge Albuquerque. The band also trusted again its work to the careful hands of Wave Records
(SP), now distributed by Audioglobe (Italy).
