Fishbach's new song “Invisible Désintegration De L’Univers,” premiering today on The FADER, finds the French musician in an ominous mood. Impending doom lines the song, starting from the title (as you probably guessed, it translates to "Invisible Disintegration of the Universe.") Within the proggy, poppy krautrock track itself, Fishbach's voice takes the tone of a grim reaper counting down a space shuttle as walls of synths cast out sinister arpeggios.
"That song is quite unique and special for me," Fishbach told The FADER over email. "It does not fit in the classic pop song format and uses medieval harmonies. Not in a dark way, more like... mysterious! The lyrics are totally open to interpretation, they could deal with fanaticism as much as atheism or astronomy. When I started playing it live, people didn't understand it at first. But I knew I had to record it and put it out there! You should never refrain yourself from being psychedelic…"
