Background/Info: “Days Of Distortion” is the official debut album by Parisian (France) formation Pam Ristourié. The album comes as a collaboration between labels Icy Cold Records, Shore Dive Records, Stellar Frequencies, Hidden Bay, Araki and Pyrrhic Victory Recordings.
Content: From the very seconds you immediately notice the Dream-Pop inspiration of the band. The songs remain dreamy and sweet sometimes with an elevating passage. You’ll also discover a harder and darker song but the main part of the travel remains wafting ending into a catchy track with a great guitar apotheosis.
+ + + : Dream-Pop music is the truest sense of the meaning featuring a great debut- and last song. The guitar playing creates a lifting sensation this way brings the album to an absolute, sensational, last part. I also have to say a word about the sensual, androgenic, vocals which are perfectly matching with the music creating a true osmosis.
– – – : Great and promising songs are alternating with a few, poorly, inspired cuts but let’s keep the best part in mind.
Conclusion: “Days Of Distortion” stands for a promising and I should say elegant debut album.
Best songs: “You Are The Sound”, “Disappear For Me”, “A Star Among The Candles”.
