French dark techno / synthpop project Fragrance. to release 2nd album'Salt Water'

Out on November 5 via Synth Religion is Fragrance.’s newest, 2nd, LP “Salt Water”. The album holds 10 dark techno / synthpop songs and was co-produced with Sophia Hamadi, half of duo Opale. We discovered a slightly darker sound compared to the project’s previous work.

Fragrance. is the solo project of Paris-based Matthieu Roche. In the past he collaborated with artists such as Maya Postepski, Hante and techno producer Julian Muller, and also made remixes for Prayers and Julia Bondar. He debuted with the album “Now That I’m Real” in 2019.

Below is the album’s first single released a while back, “Covered in Gold”.



Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
