After an atomic passage on the stages of almost all the festivals and halls of the province; a packed Club Soda in 2019 for their Rewerk concert; and their tour with Half Moon Run, the stage beasts of Choses Sauvages present their new material co-produced with sidekick Samuel Gemme. Their creative energy was transmuted into twelve songs taking place on a second album entitled Choses Sauvages II, under the Audiogram label. For two years, the Montreal quintet meticulously refined a new, more polished, electro and nu-disco sound, still as rebellious, groovy and danceable as ever. This new offering follows their first self-titled album, released in September 2018 and produced by Emmanuel Éthier. The disc had then projected them to the top of the radio charts with pieces like the supercharged La valse des trottoirs or the languorous Ariane. Not to mention the explosive successes Apophis and L’or et l’argent, which appeared in the meantime.
