J'Orage

Released May 13th 2016

"Mystery may abound on “Béat”, the lead single from the debut EP from Sask. psych-poppers Ponteix, but the avant melodies and swirling synth cuts all lead to the same big payoff. Sung entirely en francais, “Béat” combines the echoing swagger of stadium-sized guitar chords with dreamlike song structures and woozy instrumental flourishes. Clad in immaculate, pointy dancing shoes (probably), the latest offering from Ponteix is a taste of well-groomed exuberance that is not unlike blissing out on a bed made of clouds, choral harmonies and an endless supply of snacks." - Ominocity

About

Bio

 

Hailing from a humble place in the epicenter of the land of living skies, French multi-instrumentalist Mario Lepage has been spending his last few years writing, performing, and collecting a sonic journal of influences. After performing & winning some heavy weight Francophone Canadian competitions, Lepage quickly came to the conclusion that the story he was trying to write needed additional artists. Employing the help of experimental musician Adam Logan & minimalist percussionist Kyle Grimsrud-Manz, Lepage created PONTEIX. On the verge of existential & extraterrestrial, Lepage’s clever lyrics and intoxicating vocal timbre rest themselves on an ocean of cascading stereo delays, anxious rhythms & sub-frequency howls. With their Debut EP "J'Orage" released May 13th 2016 and a handful of eastern and western Canadian music awards, the ever evolving project finds a new horizon to stretch out on. With tidal wave endings & avant melodies sung in both languages, PONTEIX has only just begun to take on the grand nature of the skies they write under.
