"Myosis, young artist from France, releases his first EP, "Pretty Girls Are Never Sad", very marked by a throbbing rock."

Myosis: physiological or pathological narrowing of the pupil. This scientific term was adopted as a patronymic by a young artist from France. It's with none other than Denis Barthe, ex-drummer of the band led by Bertrand Cantat, that Myosis recorded its first EP with a title as cynical as disenchanted: "Pretty Girls Are Never Sad".

From the start, Myosis generously reveals its inspirations in a cold and haunting rock climate with 'Slow Days', which reveals the main influence of the artist, Radiohead. However, the voice is not as plaintive as Thom Yorke's - there is a cold anger, a barely digested rage.

Avoiding the traps of the too strong homage, Myosis reveals a more personal and interesting dimension when it knows how to detach itself from its influences. The use of a Rhodes keyboard stamped 70's enriches the sound palette on 'Need You', finding more aerial sonorities. And it is finally on 'Rosie Green' that Myosis reveals its true face: sticky blues influences which evoke Rodolphe Burger's Kat Onoma and a more assertive voice playing on the sides intimacy / cold distance.

Myosis asserts beautiful promises from his first EP; if the references have not been completely digested yet, we can only encourage the approach of an artist who does not lock himself in a single genre. A story to be followed with a lot of attention.

OTHER REVIEWS
EDDIE VEDDER: Earthling (2022)
ROCK - Symbol of a free spirit as much as a committed artist, "Earthling" is a perfect kaleidoscope of influences of an Eddie Vedder who exposes here all the facets of his identity.
BORNHOLM: Apotheosis (2021)
BLACK METAL - Technically very well done and all along pleasant to listen to, "Apotheosis" will seduce as much those who remain sensitive to a black metal loaded with epic melodies as it will put off the amateurs of a more serious and dramatic darkness.
