Couteau Latex
Décadanse 12″ EP

Couteau Latex is a US-Swiss duo formed by Seth Sutton (Useless Eaters, Life Trap) and Lise Sutter (Maraudeur, The Staches). « Décadanse », their first EP, comes after two 7″ released by Goner Records, an iconic figure of Memphis’s punk scene.

Mostly recorded in 2015 between Switzerland and USA on a 4-track recorder, ‘Décadanse’ delivers mechanic and melancholic post-punk tunes, interconnecting European minimal synth and US punk traditions. Here, the bass is groovy and leading, the vocals are haunting, half-spoken/half-sung, the sound dusty. If we stoop to make comparisons, Couteau Latex reminds us some of our personal French idols like Deux, singing about the cigarette smoke left at night by a bunch of boys  » à la démarche fauve »…
