Experimental pop band Aquaserge has been a subterranean driving force in the international music scene for the last few years, inspiring and influencing countless musicians. Originally formed by three friends (Julien Barbagallo, Julien Gasc & Benjamin Glibert) in the south-western French city of Toulouse, Aquaserge soon became a shifting collective involving many collaborators (including mainstays Audrey Ginestet and Manon Glibert), while the band's three founders went on to also become (respectively) part of Tame Impala, Stereolab and Melody's Echo Chamber. Aquaserge also have a long-time association with Japanese band Acid Mothers Temple.

Aquaserge's resolutely polymorphous music draws from sources as diverse as original psych pop, free jazz, noise, vintage French film music, pataphysics, and the most adventurous side of '60s/'70s rock (say, from kraut to Canterbury to cult Gallic bands such as ZNR). All absorbed and playfully transmuted to create their own unique, cinematic sound. Their tracks include instrumental excursions, intriguing harmonies, and pristine pop songs, always ready to joyfully burst at the seams.

The word "Aquaserge" has been whispered like a secret password between artists and music fans, they're epitomes of musicians' musicians (at a recent show in Brussels, the audience contained members of practically all the exciting young local bands… and the same would certainly be true in London, Berlin or L.A.), yet Aquaserge are now ready to present their music to a wider audience.

We at Crammed Discs are delighted and honored to welcome such an awe-inspiring band to our roster. In September 2016, we've released Aquaserge's new Guerre EP ("War EP". Which also reads phonetically as "War and Peace" in French), while their new album is out on 3 Feb. 2017 (released again in association with French label Almost Musique )
