Lysistrata | Exclusive video to discover their made-in-France selection
Just before the beginning of their German tour (with a detour to Wales), Lysistrata shared their special made-in-France selection with us. We can find some elegance with Pogo Car Crash Control, a little bit of love with Deluge and some nostalgic’s notes with Maxime Le Forestier… Let’s rock!
Lysistrata (refering to the myth Lysistrata), are three friends on their twenties from Saintes. The band is composed by Théo Guéneau (guitar/voice), Max Roy (bass/voice) and Ben Amos Cooper (drum/voice). Lysistrata is presented in France as the ‘Rock revelation’ of the year! Their music, evolving constantly since they start in 2013, between noise, post-hardcore, math rock and post-rock, so it can be hard to define their style.
We compare them to many bands as At the Drive-In, Refused, Battles, Foals, Explosions in the Sky or even Sonic Youth. But the band is most of everything guide by their own spontaneity and an insolent fixation to always wanted to fight.
