Syracuse enter Latomia


Watch a video for the Parisian pair’s cosmic new release on the Antinote label.

The Syracuse pairing of Antoine Kogut and Isabelle Maitre were the second act to release on Quentin Vandewalle’s Antinote label back in 2012, with the soft rockisms of their Giant Mirrors 12″ helping to establish the notion that the Paris label was a lover of all music and not just techno. This is a notion which has been strengthened as the Antinote discography has flourished, with floor-focused releases of various shades from Geena, Albinos, and Iueke complemented by Nico Motte’s Rheologia that felt like a forgotten piece of academic music from the ‘70s.

Syracuse’s return to Antinote finds the label embracing the 7″ format with no concession to the fine visual aesthetic that’s been cultivated by design agency Check Morris as their discography has grown. Indeed the above cover art (which features Kogut looking every bit like a young Bryan Cranston) is a fine hint for the music contained within. B-side track “Latomia” sees Syracuse wind the clock back to era of ’70s psychedelia, with the sun-kissed video from French directorial mainstay Irwin Barbé pitched perfectly.
