“24” is Minuit Machine’s eagerly expected 4th regular full-length album, following the previous Album ‘Infrarouge’ from 2019.
An electronic masterpiece, subtle mix of dark wave, techno and electropop, “24” is both surprising and seductive. Authentic, emotional and powerful, “24” is a real immersion into Minuit machine’s dark, dystopian and futuristic world. Through this album, Hélène and Amandine are facing all obstacles and disappointments life brings on their way. Each track is a self-affirmation, a rallying cry and an urge to live. The instrumental part is clearly marked and contributes to create the band’s unique sound. The strong beats are a call to dance while the synths, stabbing and emotional, will definitely move you. Finally, the deep basses give the tracks an “EBM” touch.
Vocal lines are more pop, with less reverb. They are meant to obsess and stay in your head all day long. They were thought of as a 90’s dance music chorus, but with feelings. As usual, the lyrics are very personal and describe several states of mind.
Since their creation, Hélène and Amandine kept on reinventing themselves in order to translate their inner questioning and emotions into music. From this point of view, “24” could be Minuit Machine’s most accomplished work since each track sounds like a confession.
