Ô Lake is the project of the talented French Rennes-based pianist and composer Sylvain Texier. Last year we introduced him with “The Leftovers”; now he released the debut full-length. Refuge is out now via French labels Patchrock and Night-Night Records. It has been recorded in France and mastered in Berlin by Zino Mickorey (who worked on the last efforts of Olafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm).

The album features French Paul Rouger (Les Solistes Français) on the violin and David Harlé (Ensemble Philéas) on the cello. Full streaming is available via Spotify. Listen below.
