Les Discrets is currently working on a forthcoming album, and a teaser clip can be heard below. The band also comments:
"Nowadays, I'm preparing the recordings of the third Les Discrets album. I decided to record it by myself for once, considering there is a lot of electronic in it. I'll move to the countryside for 2 months in January to make the follow up to Ariettes Oubliées.
"My music has considerably evolved since two years, and I'm very excited that I found what I thought had disappeared: the will to make beautiful music. I'm using new instruments, many synthesizers, more reverb than ever and no drums anymore.
"I worked each song so much that I can't count the different versions, which I've never done in the past, and I guess the final output will be very cinematographic, atmospheric and terribly melancholic. It'll be very Les Discrets-ish but in quite a different approach.
"Also, the mixing of Live at Roadburn will soon start, for an expected release this year. So there is stuff to come from us! And because you're such cool people, here is a short preview of a demo." More...

LES DISCRETS, the solo project of Fursy Teyssier (Alcest, Amesoeurs), is currently residing at Drudenhaus studio, France, to record his debut album. Fursy: "We finished the recording by the end of last week, and the album sounds reeeallly reallly good. Definitely something to look forward to for you! The album gathers songs that were composed spanning the last years, starting from 2003 to February 2009. This is a collection of the best songs I composed so far!"
The release of the yet untitled album is tentatively scheduled for autumn 2009 via Prophecy.
Les Discrets, the solo project founded by Fursy Teyssier (Alcest, Amesoeurs) in 2003, steps forth from its Myspace existence into the light of day.
"'Les Discrets' (engl.: the discreet ones) are those creatures that live in nature and who bring nature to life, the ones who make the leaves move, who put dew on the flowers each morning, who throw the pollen in the air ... That's a parallel life that we are not able to see, but that many of us can feel. The project's concept is pervaded by this perception of nature as well as my existential questions, especially about the feelings of love and death, as I always found a parallel between nature and human life and love," Fursy outlines the concept of Les Discrets.
Les Discrets has just signed a five-album contract with Prophecy Productions. The release of the project's as-yet-untitled debut album is tentatively scheduled for autumn 2009.
