THE WORLD is available on CD / LP incl. mp3 / Digital
THE WORLD is a french Pop/New Wave trio from Rouen, France.
Their music feels undeniably familiar and yet it is quite hard to describe precisely, some tracks draw from NeoRomantic influences while others tend to sound more like FMRock. The sound feels classic, obvious and anachronistic.
Lyrically, the songs mainly portray the business world, oscillating between pragmatism and determinism – texts can be read as neoconservative poems as well as subversive pamphlets. They advocate predatory sexuality and a recreational use of drugs, as long as rectitude and professionalism are not out of focus.
The philosophy behind the music reminds one of the flashyyuppie vibe of the Trumpera and its constant race for success.
