"Stomping bass lines and primitive drum beats are held together by a throaty, uncontrollable voice that mumbles and bellows over spurts of guitar twangs. The frantic energy of tracks like “Ah!” and “Swinging Man” is counter-balanced by moody interludes that give structure to the album. Influenced by Laurence’s youth in France and the rainy skies of Paris, these detuned “yeye” sketches take a walk through the grey territories of social alienation, suburban numbness, and bourgeois narcissism. A desperate ode to the pent-up energy of the people and the potential in our collective anger, Wasser’s 11 new unstable ballads, though vastly different than the primitive disco-trash of his earlier recordings, retain the same addictive, spastic energy, adding a gloomier mood for darker days.

Mêlant voix désarticulée, rythmes primitifs et guitares yéyés désaccordées, “V” oscille entre garage psychotique ( “Ah!”,”Swinging Man”) et instrumentaux taciturnes (“Faux amis”, “Island impossible”). Enregistré entre San Francisco et Berlin, le disque se veut une ballade de 11 titres sous le ciel gris de la Vème république, celle des maisons Bouygues, des trains Ouigo et de la colère qui gronde."
