FONTARABIE RELEASES A NEW EP

After releasing its first album in the spring of 2014, Fontarabie strikes back with Éclipses, a five-track EP where older material and new jams collide into a slightly more pop experiment. Éclipses lays the grounds for a musical transition, while pulling no punches when it comes to the unique and sometimes dark melodies that made Julien Mineau’s brand.
