Anticipation has been building. Ödland‘s new record has had a dozen teasers, and behind all the humor has been snippets of a real catchy track – what we now know to be “The Queen Of Hearts”. Yesterday, Lorenzo Papace, the main musical man behind Ödland, posted a video for the song.
Featuring mixed-media, the video emphasizes Ödland’s modern experimental French classical sounds, complimenting them with insurmountable brilliance. “The Queen Of Hearts” comes very close to topping everything off the band’s debut EP, The Caterpillar; muse-like Alizée Bingöllü has never sounded so drawing, and the band, fronted by Papace and including Lea Bingöllü and Isabelle Royet-Journoud, are at their best.
“The Queen Of Hearts” was fully realized and directed by Papace and Vincent Pianina. Blending entirely modern sounds with experimental “found” sounds and an unquestionable predilection toward historic French classical music, Ödland is poised to give us their first full-length, Ottocento this spring.
