Since his arrival in Paris, Nathan Roche has been a busy man to say the least. Within the last four years, Roche has split his time between fronting Le Villejuif Underground on some of the biggest European festivals, restless touring as part of the experimental duo CIA Débutante and dreaming of a world without swimming pools in his latest anticipation novel The Shallow Death of Enceladus.
One might wonder how Marseille's most famous Australian immigrant has also found time to record three new songs under his own name, yet here they are!
Roche's rants about pianos available for public use in shopping malls and unreliable city-provided bike rental services are as funny to hear as well written, confirming an evergrowing talent when it comes to blurring the lines between humor, poetry and satire, while guitars and drums are obviously thicker and beefier than all of his previous records.
