Bleu Nuit – “Concentration”
“Concentration” by Bleu Nuit screams Joy Division or Preoccupations to me – and it does so in French. The vocals are completely in French. The nursery rhyme “Frère Jacques”, is the extent of my French language knowledge or skillset.
The song absolutely shreds. The swinging guitars and occasional synths that bounce in are fundamentally post punk. The last minute or so is instrumentally something that perhaps could have been on Closer. Language doesn’t matter here. Anyone can enjoy and appreciate what these Montrealers have cooked up. Their album, le jardin des mémoires is packed full with tunes like “Concentration” and is definitely worth checking out.
Anyway You Should Probably Listen to “Concentration” by Bleu Nuit.
