Betrand Cantat is tragic soul. Best known for the black heart processions that were his songs with Noir Désir, but probably even better known for the killing of his girlfriend, actress Marie Trintignant, now 10 years ago in Vilnius. Was it an accident, was it murder? Is three years in prison enough? Big questions. Cantant was released, his house was burned down, his first wife and the mother of his two children commited suicide, his former band called it quits. Now, Cantat is back with former Sixteen Horsepower-member Pascal Humbert, as the duo Détroit. Droit dans le soleil is the first track of an upcoming album, Horizons. A more suitable title could’ve been ‘melancholy and the infinite sadness’.

French girls, singing. No, sighing. Making me sigh. Ah.
