CHEVALIER AVANT GARDE
Chevalier Avant Garde is a Montreal-based duo of euro ex pats Dimitri and Filip who share a love of low lighting shadows and ancient ruins. Dimtri, of Greek descent, spent his dysfunctional childhood on the island of Crete riding his Kawasaki around the beach of a NATO base. Not too much is known about Filip except that he grew up in the industrial city of Lodz where he worked as a ball boy for LKS Lodz.
Globetrotting enigmas Filip and Dimitri are citizens of an aesthetic more than any recognized polity. For fans of 154-era Wire, dark sophisticated synth-pop, island exotica, and hit singles.
