ATSUKO CHIBA

EXPÉRIMENTALE/PROG/ROCK

Quintette montréalais comme une bête rock exploratoire et expansive,  Atsuko Chiba croise prog-, kraut-, psych-, funk- et post- rock avec une cohésion dynamique et hypnotique. Des pièces comme des cycles éclectiques, aux dimensions immersives et à l'intensité cosmique, comme des royaumes vastes et vertigineux, surprenants et inespérés. Leur quatrième recueil de pièces, The Memory Empire, est paru en novembre dernier.

Atsuko Chiba a entre autres partagé la scène avec Indian Handcrafts, Duchess Says, Caspian, Tricot, 65daysofstatic, If These Trees Could Talk, The Alarmist, Arms and Sleepers et Little Tybee. 

These guys are masters of soundscapes and ambient sound.

ALBUMS

Getting right down to the meat and marrow. They’ll infect you. They’ll steal you away. They’ll tap right into your core and begin pumping in their whirling, ticking, peaking, grinding sounds.
— INDEPENDANT MUSIC NEWS
Atsuko Chiba is an unclassifiable, hyperactive, and overall weird band that plays experimental music that draws influences from psychedelic, post-rock, progressive rock, and probably a bunch more stuff with one or more prefixes.
— ARTIC DRONES
Bathed in psychedelic projections, the troupe were at the centre of an immersive audio-visual experience.
— Exclaim!
There is an explicit raw energy the band exudes (...) The slow drone of the rhythm section overlaid by the buzzing synthesizer tones coupled with the delayed guitars—it all culminates into an ethereal experience, making you acutely aware of your own breathing as your eyes close and your head tilts back ever so slightly.
