Five Questions With Population II

Montreal, QC-based trio, Population II released their debut album, À la Ô Terre via Castle Face Records on October 30, 2020.

Now, the band has unveiled the mysterious video for their track, “Ce n’est rêve” in which the band channels its spontaneous and aggressive energy by playing with the balance between airy and crescendo moments.

About the video, here’s what the band had to say:

« Something mysterious is floating in the air…Can you feel it? »

Care to introduce yourself to our readers?

Population II is Tristan Lacombe on guitar/organ, Pierre-Luc Gratton on vocals/drums & Sébastien Provençal on bass.

We play heavy psychedelic music that fuses the energy of punk with the improvisational state of mind that free jazz is known for.

We do what we do.

Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.

Our music is a reflection of our improvised & recorded sessions. Out of these sessions, we listen to find the foundations and thus our democratic songwriting process starts.

Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?

We are playing the 15th edition of M for Montreal this Wednesday the 18th at 21:00. It’s a pre-recorded show because of the pandemic.

Our live performances are based on the idea that songs have different levels of intensity and different places to go. This is where you get to see the improvisational & listening mentality of the band.

If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?

Il eut un silence dans le ciel
