French underground’s most loyal members since 2010, CHAOS E.T. SEXUAL is an ambitious project mixing massive drone/industrial soundscapes and hip-hop/noise-laden beats to produce a hybrid songcraft. Highly sensitive to anything visual and improv-related, the band always offer a live set that involves visual artists or video makers. Bass frequencies out loud, cold mechanical beats and sci-fi topics infused with political speeches that are disrupting the auditive approach, making it a subversive yet highly engaging sonic experience.
Following their dark experimentations infused with urban beats, the band’s third album Only Human Crust is far more more politically engaged than the previous records, with nine tracks that highlight the modern world’s chaos and darkness, in the most compelling and intoxicating way. About Only Human Crust, the band says: “Laurent Gaudé’s book Eldorado, that tells several stories linked with the crossing of the Mediterranean Sea by migrants, inspired us a lot, we realised that we shared the same topics, these are about capitalist totalitarism and the different kinds of control, addiction an intolerance coming out of our contemporary societies. You can see all of this through Ëmgalaï Grafik’s artwork.”
