La Corda is composed of French and English band members:
Stéphane Corcoral and
Progress No Progress is their debut album. Somewhere between ” Low “, ” Mogwai” and ” Portishead “, Progress No Progress stays true to the band’s original project: creating music that comes from deep down, music that surpasses each musician involved, miles away from any kind of career strategy.
No catchy FM tunes here then, but a highly charged atmosphere, hypnotic and sensitive.
La Corda’s sound is the confrontation of a delicate voice, dark guitars, a harmonium drone and polymorphic drums. Intimate stories are told of everyday life, nostalgia, the struggle for individual and collective freedoms, love, frustration, the violence of the world…
Just like ” La Corda’s ” concerts, the band’s recorded work is designed as a series of waves that will take each listener to a singular soundscape.
