about

The title of the duo’s new album defines its mood : nocturnal, contemplative, sometimes dark but never complacent. The album is made up of 10 original ballads filled with ghosts and shadows but the duo stay clear of any « goth » pose ; on the contrary, Nocturne’s songs exude warmth ; the duo’s sound is both organic and atmospheric. Finger-picked guitar, piano, wurlitzer, banjo, drums, cello, flugelhorn, kalimba and percussion lay the foundation, and both Léonie and Pierre sing, together and separately.

With « Nocturne », The Sandman’s Orchestra have created a timeless record that will appeal to fans of Nick Drake, Beth Gibbons, Joni Mitchell, Bill Callahan, Cat Power and Kate Bush.
