PRESS | The Wire
Christophe Demarthe, formerly from experimental renegades Clair Obscur, makes terse statements on the nature of power and sexuality on his debut Cocoon release. Loops are kept hard and jagged, overt references to Georges Bataille’s Story of the Eye are inserted; alienation makes itself known.
