French shoegaze/indie act Alcest recently announced the arrival of their 7th album, “Les Chants De L’Aurore”, on June 21 via Nuclear Blast. Today the band has shared the second album single, “Flamme Jumelle”, along with a music video.

Alcest‘s mastermind Neige states: “Despite its more accessible vibe, this song is actually the most personal song of the album for me. “Flamme Jumelle”, which means “Twin Flame”, is about the idea of loss in general and the difficulty of coping with the absence of someone you deeply loved. It could be a family member, a friend, or a partner. On a more spiritual level, the title refers to the possibility that certain souls are connected in this life and beyond, and that separation is temporary and just a mortal concept.”

For principal songwriter and frontman NeigeAlcest has always been a gateway to the otherworldly, a means of exploring his spirituality. An elemental two-piece, completed by long-serving drummer and creative confidante Winterhalter, Alcest seem to dip their toes in a multitude of musical genres without ever quite fitting in.

“In the metal scene, Alcest is a weird band, in the indie/post-rock scene Alcest is a weird band; we never quite fit in,” Neige reflects. “This is how I feel in life, always an outsider. It’s not a problem; it’s just the way it is.”
