New release – Egyptology « Sur Les Autres Mondes » (LP/DL) / HITD 036 / Limited edition of 300 copies, out on 23th March.

Partly composed for a performance at the prestigious Louvre museum in Paris, « Sur Les Autres Mondes » is the French duo’s first full length album since 2012, finding its title and a fitting visual inspiration in a publication by French astronomer Lucien Rudaux (1937, Larousse).
