ODRA 03:36
I collide with your rawness I am squeezed by anxiety I try to evade from this town Where you pushed me till the neck I collide with your rawness, as always I’ll let you see wider than time, Let me becoming the stream breathing in your realm Drive me to the plains, and Turn me on, once again You collide with my respect, as always Am I yet deep inside the rock? Lonesome as the lode Full of steel Begging for exploding I'll turn into a tide and tie you to the wave, to the wave Take me to your crown Feed me to the soil Waste me to the dawn
VLTAVA 04:01
On my first days I was black Then I turned into a nymph On the next day I’ve grown wild And I had to declare the war Against the greed of men and their lack of trust in love, in me I'm traveling down through our lands I'm gonna shift into a wave. I am the worse you’re gonna face You'd better dive into my arms, into my soul and becoming a better will, a better will. Take the roads into my hands Feel the wind that feeds my veins Always care to the unity that we share I don't belong to this mess And to those people who control the race Always care to the unity that we share Take the roads out from your veins Ride the wind out from your brain Always care to the unity that we share We don't belong to this mess And to this greed which controls the race Always care to the unity that w share I’ll always care for you
RHONE 05:53
I sat down by the lake For once I’m on my own On the shore where she stood Like a bird That was before the mountains took her soul back and broke her faith But now I’m ready I’m ready to drown myself into its stream and face her birth There’s nothing more, nothing more Et le Rhône m’ouvre ses bras Des peupliers noirs m’accueillent Et je monte à la nage vers l’est. Floating up next to the sun My body is about to transform Into a swarm of swans The fount is calling me
RHEIN 07:32
My love You drag so many says, and many wars, for ages Your gallant tide who bounds the land is aching Mon amour The king is wrong and breaking down beliefs we had in each others I’m like a deer, with you my dear There’s nothing else, we can’t achieve Then claiming for a severe flood and raise the rage River that everything drags is known as violent, nobody calls violent the margins that arrest her We grant our life to the road and bet on death We brave the time as we ride the surge There’s nothing wrong to escape from fear This shore is made to be blessed again Rivers are leading us up to the heart of our soul Cities are standing alive and protecting our yarns There’s so much flames to embrace Forest are moving so fast that I’m breathing again
DUNA 07:44
I don’t know why I’m streaming I forgot where I’ve dawned I don’t know where I’m flowing You’ve got so many shapes and many names Then women bring me the key I’m craving for much more They’ve been charming my ten countries and the rest of the lands I don’t know where I’m going, I’m looking for your trace I can’t say if I’ll succeed to be safe from your shade I’ll carry our memories to the black sea. One day, I’ll mingle myself with the holy Rhine My bow to distortion of time. Roaming For so long Your mortal coil is moulting Your name, forgotten I wish you’re gonna spring everywhere
VOLGA 03:37
SAMARA 04:44
And if you shut your mouth And run back to your mum And you start to mind And step away from cowardice And if you stop to claim that you know a damn thing Can you shut the fuck up, very much please And start to mind for my own sake And if women would lead And if you stop to be scared And if you trust her cunt And satisfy her pleasure for once You’re pitiful being I can’t stop to despise you And if you shut your mouth And go to fucking hell now, for my own sake Take a look at what you’ve done So much to blame, you’re so insane You’re a miserable piece of shit Your cursed money won’t help I’ve never been rude that way The wrath is taking me over And if you start to mind Then plan to be a fellow man Sometimes, my words are troublesome I feel the flare into my bones Please take my hands and pull me out There’s a better place where we can shine
Dark brown hair and eyelash Reappear in a flash Now's the only time I know Early morning's greatest deed What's forsaken, I do not need There is water, there is snow Settling down door and room Keep it tidy, keep it like a home Now's the only time I know Come here, sparrow Watch my hand Black and blue seeds That is what my hand can Now's the only time I know Do my hair, paint eyelash Reappear in a flash There is more I'd like to know Nine-fifteen, then I'm done Quiet front seat, then drive around Through the water, through the snow

“The river that everything drags is known as violent, but nobody calls violent the margins that arrest her.”

This quote from Bertolt Brecht is the best way to portray FLEUVE, the devastating new album of belgian outfit THOT. After a decade of challenging its music across several albums, EPs, videos, alternative versions, remixes and european tours, the gang lead by Grégoire Fray is going to bring a breath of fresh air in the industrial-rock and post-rock genres. Produced by Magnus Lindberg (Cult of Luna) and engineered in live circumstances, FLEUVE features 9 songs built around a powerful drums/bass/guitar trio, on which passionate vocals, heavy synths, clarinet laments and bulgarian choirs melt together perfectly. Thereby, FLEUVE is a luminous ode to the european continent and its cultural history, to nature’s immuable inspiration, to women and transcendance. FLEUVE is due 20th of October 2017 on Weyrd Son Records.

"...between the dark haze of Neurosis and the dadaism of Throbbing Gristle. (...) embracing the dark romanticism of Bauhaus, and venturing into the spiraling structures of Mars Volta" - PUNKNEWS (USA)

"THOT nous présente une Europe bousculée, mélangée, bandante et pleine d’une vie pas épargnée par les souffrances, les rages et les espoirs. Le groupe avance comme un Viking en conquête, non pas avec le secret espoir de tout détruire, mais avec celui d’être un des multiples petits canaux qui alimentent un cœur bien malade. Putain putain c’est vachement bien…." - A Découvrir Absolument (FR)

"as neue Album des belgischen Post-Rock-Trios THOT hört auf den Namen FLEUVE und ist der Nachfolger des 2014er Werks „The City that Disappears“. Post-Rock einen eigenen Stempel aufzudrücken ist nicht leicht, doch THOT beweisen, dass es doch möglich ist. " - Pretty In Noise (DE)
