      ABOUT

      For 3 years now, Obsimo has been developing a bright electronic world in which he mixes vehement voices, haunting synthesizers and airy guitars. His music plunges us into a dream world where we feel really tangible energy and power through its dance/electro rhythms. Obsimo manages to stop time and carry us away onto an incredible journey.

       

      Based in Bordeaux and supported by Banzaï Lab, Rock School Barbey and Krakatoa, Obsimo has been represented by the Parisian label SHLO Music (label-publishing-mgmt) since 2017.

       

      Obsimo’s project comes alive mostly onstage. Along with video mapping staged by Cocobird, while he plays his controllers and guitar, Obsimo is forever transforming his live show to plunge his audience further and further into his world. After more than 60 performances (Live shows & DJ Sets), some of them alongside artists like Rone, Thylacine, Molécule, Danger (…) Obsimo is one of the happy few selected by Inouïs du Printemps de Bourges and will play in the festival on 20 April 2019.

      ADDICTION LP

      Following two EPs, LUCIDE (2016) and OBSIDIENNE (2018), Obsimo release in 2019 his new LP “ADDICTION” that includes 7 tracks.

       

      “ADDICTION” points to a part of society which is tragically lost in the turbulence of addiction, going from a steroid freak in search of physical recognition (Biceps) to a retired woman spending her days and savings in casinos (777), including young people lost in the maze of unreal sex (Kama). All these stories are portrayed without judgment, only the sadness of the characters filters through the songs.

       

      But Obsimo knows how to confuse his listeners and has no reservations when wrapping the nostalgic and romantic aspect of his music in an electronic arrangement of violent sweetness. A good storyteller, he doesn’t forget to inject a pervasive layer of hope through the brightness of his synthesisers, his heavenly voice and his haunting guitar, reminding us that, even in total distress, it’s not utopian to want to pull yourself out of it, even if you can’t really do it.

       

      Regarding on the visual world of ADDICTION, Obsimo worked with visual artist Polygon1993 who created the different artworks, as well as the digital making of the Addiction video clip – directed by Antoine Bal (A$AP Rocky, MadeinTYO…) and produced by SHLO Music and Carnibird. Obsimo is always with his friend and art director Cocobird, who also created Molly video clip (after having already signed Faceless video clip of the latest EP OBSIDIENNE).
