Aravis ~ Cloud

Aravis Artwork!Who is ARAVIS?  An exotic fusion between three French musicians! They are: Phillipe Roche (Chant), Benjamin Fournier-Bidoz (Composition/Production), Arnaud Astruc (Composition/Production)!

My first impression of “Cloud” :  A fascinating blend of soaring textures and melodic sounds!

My take : ARAVIS jumped on my radar out of nowhere and I am definitely glad they did.  The interesting French trio have released a masterful debut EP titled ‘Liberty is your choice”, and all four songs are beautifully strange yet at the same time incredibly riveting.  Each one brings something different to the table but out of all these amazing tracks, “Cloud” seems to rise just a little above the rest for me.  From the static sounding electronic charges and guitar glitches to the colorful mixture of clashing sounds, “Cloud” feels more like experiencing a grand collision of gorgeous chaos in slow motion.  Like watching fireworks exploding above my head at different speeds.  It’s powerfully intense, somewhat quirky but in the end completely memorable!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
