“Most duos obnoxiously wave in your face the fact that they are soul mates and how mystically connected they are in the practice of their art. They’re full of shit, jealous and competing for glory; they probably hate each other deep down. Bullshit. We are one.” dixit lead singer of Exotic Club.
Exotic club’s two members have been travelling back and forth from Paris, France to Portland, OR since September 2011. This experimental synth dark dance duo will be based in Portland for an extended period time starting in October 2012.
Making music together eventually seemed obvious, a “why in the fuck shouldn’t we do this too” kind of realization. Exotic Club's goal then and now has always been simple: the sound must be noisy, synthy and withhold the cryptic irony of pop while remaining dark, insouciant. Their influences contain the energy of post-punk, the experimental aspects of noise, the mixed feelings of dark disco and cold wave, and the rage of punk and rap core.
