Trisome 21 - Shift Away 12"

Trisome 21 for me are one of those odd bands that you adore, but most people have no clue about. They are a very unique and strange band for sure, they float somewhere between industrial and goth, and sometimes have a glint of Cocteau Twins sound thrown in for good measure. Philippe Lomprez has rather strange vocals, but they are quite mesmerizing once you get stuck in his spell. The music can be rather chaotic at times, but has an underlying beauty that is enchanting as well. Really, you'll have to give them a spin, and tell me what you think of them, as I think they're brilliant! In case you're wondering, Trisome 21 'basically' means down syndrome, or the triplication of the 21st chromosome, and is also known as trisomy. This band hails from Lille, France :)
