  Summer has not officially kicked in yet but Antinote’s new addition to its roster will sure soundtrack perfectly its upcoming warm nights: encapsulating the teenage dream of an endless summer, 18 RAYS is the moniker behind which some of the label’s most steady fixtures gave a try at recording music together, somewhere straight in the heart of Paris’ 18th arrondissement.

.
Nico Motte, Zaltan & Raphaël Top-Secret have been friends way before each of them occasionally played his part in the Parisian label and it is mainly out of this friendship that they conceived 18 RAYS, a vessel to finally give life to the band they dreamed of in their teenage years. It is safe to say that 18 RAYS has been in their mind for quite a while, but it was only last winter, after a couple of bottles of natural wine on a hazy evening, that they decided that it was time to give it a real go and to pick up the instrument each learned years ago: the guitar, the bass and the drums.

Produced by Nico Motte – the man behind all the artworks of the label - the trio spent 5 weeks between Synth City (Motte’s studio) and Red Bull Studio in Paris working on these 4 songs, each sitting somewhere between some sort of timeless and somehow aquatic dream pop and blurred visions of an eerie grunge sound, that probably
never was.

That being said, the genesis of 18 RAYS might explain why their debut EP turns out to be such an intimate affair:
while it took its members down memory lane, the listener will embark on an ethereal trip, taking him to a parallel
universe in which the sounds of Cocteau Twins, Durutti Column or A.C. Marias endlessly resonate while Wild At Heart keeps on running for the Palme d’Or.
