Thé Déluge is the new moniker of French musician Vincent Caylet, also known as Archers By The Sea, Cankun, The Pistil Cosmos. Forest Structures is the first releasewith this project and it is out now via Umor Rex. It was recorded mostly on analog gear and inspired by both nature and urbanism. Full streaming is available below.
Forest Structures sees Caylet largely jettison cosmic tropical islands and guitar twang. Thé Déluge deals in moonlit electronics and nocturnal transmission that consistently bleep into each other and overlap. Thé Déluge gathers an array of synth pulsations and loops behind a murky veil of analog fuzz for a set of haunted instrumental cycles. While the sunlight of Caylet’s previous work has sharply eroded, Forest Structures retains the warm fog and psychedelic visions of the artist’s unique dreamworld for a set of glistening melodies, trippy loops, and distant rhythms.
