French sythwave act Carpenter Brut touring North America in 2017
If you ever wished Stranger Things soundtrackers S U R V I V E would make a dancefloor banger, or that Justice were a bit creepier and ethereal, then perhaps French act Carpenter Brut are for you. They wear their influences on their sleeves, right down to their name, but this year's TRILOGY, which collects their three EPs, makes a case for a merging of synthwave and French Touch sounds. You can listen to the whole thing, and check out the very cool video for "Turbo Killer" (which plays like a mashup of John Carpenter movies and Drive) below.
There is also some metal crossover here -- Carpenter Brut toured with Ghost this year and will play Roadburn 2017 -- and the group will be back for more North American shows in 2017, including one at Brooklyn club Schimanski on March 9 with Antoni Miaovvi. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
