What is Golem Dance Cult All about?
Charles and Laur had actually started their first band together when they were teenagers all those moons ago...
They each followed their musical path and now, during this strangest of times, are reunited (Laur is based in France while Charles is in the UK) for a new musical adventure under the moniker "Golem Dance Cult”.
In their very first band together Laur was the drummer and he is now the main singer, sharing vocals duties with Charles Why, who is playing bass, guitar, cigar box, harmonica, programming, sampling, adding various traditional instruments such as Shruti Box, Tibetan bowl, gong, rain stick, … while manning the production.
The sound is heavy (both Laur and Charles are “sons of the mighty guitar congregation”) but danceable, a mechanic, ritualistic groove with soul and grit.
One of the main parameters was that the intention needed to be kept spontaneous, instinct followed and mistakes expanded upon. A rock based approach without the formal structure of the genre and bringing an electronic approach in the layering of the tracks.
The whole done in a total DIY way!
