FASTLANE CANDIES is back with POLYGENE, a new multifaceted, synthetic and multilingual album. After a first EP from which the single “Wound Me” was launched at breakneck speed, followed by a tour which took them in particular to Paris and London, the Liège-based group Fastlane Candies recorded the album Telenovelas in 2013.
Almost a hundred appearances later (Nuits Botanique, Les Ardentes, Brussels Summer Festival, and Francofolies, among others), in 2015 the group decided to hang up their guitars and synths to free up time for other projects (Mini Sultan and the publication of two books for Alexis, instrumental electro lo-fi for Laurent) and also for the discovery of new horizons offering a wealth of fresh avenues to explore. New tracks emerged little by little, with a different sound; less folk, more synthetic and harsh, yet in no way detracting from the combo's pop DNA. Now back centre-stage, the Fastlane Candies have just finished Polygene, a new opus packed with synths and drum machines, due to be released by Freaksville Records in February 2019.
