Chocolat
_

For over ten years now, Chocolat has been delivering a heavy-hitting lesson in rock n’ roll to anyone who comes across its music. Both its 2007 self-titled EP and Piano élégant (2008) featured a ‘70s style, whisky-fuelled rock attitude with a hint of garage pop/rock undertones. After a five-year hiatus, during which Jimmy Hunt focused on his solo career, Chocolat released Tss Tss, a rock album with electrifying tunes and surprisingly concise lyrics. Shortly after, the band offered Rencontrer Looloo, a metal-tinged album showcasing sharp guitars and a thunderous saxophone, along with Jimmy Hunt’s ear-splitting voice. Nevertheless, the album retained an undeniable rock sound, because deep down, that’s what Chocolat does best.

And what have the members been up to in the past three years? Some have taken up sports, while others have moved away from the city or immersed themselves in fatherhood. So, does wisdom really come with age? Not for these guys! Chocolat is planning to release a new album in the fall; the two first tracks, “Fou fou fou mon minou” and “Heavy,” are a stronger blend of funk, disco, and rock than the band’s previous work. Expect a future engaged in jazz, more than ever.

Chocolat - RENCONTRER LOOLOO
Store

Rencontrer Looloo, Chocolat’s second album after an extended hiatus, finds the band swimming through modal waters, somewhere at the confluence of hard jazz and surf metal, blended with a songwriting tradition that the media, for lack of a better term, often define as folk. A far stretch from the psychedelic kraut explorations of Tss Tss, the new opus is a sort of initiatory account of the band’s journey into orbit. Here Chocolat’s kaleidoscopic visions of space have been replaced by manifestations of stark, shiny white boulders, with edges sharper than a wild jackal’s fangs.

Rencontrer Loolo will be released on November 11th and is now available for pre-order.
