„Vive la Trance“ alternates between brooding melancholy,
heavy electrical storms, and impressionistic after-the-rain moments, a style
Hahn and girlfriend Viola Limpet (vocals) have termed Rock’n’Roll Noir,
embracing songs by Lee Hazlewood and John Cale along the way and making them
completely their own. The album also features three French language originals,
penned by Hahn and Gallic poet Eric LeMarechal, including the aforementioned
hommage to Genet, and the serenely floating Au dessus de la ville, with a
referential wink and a smile towards Blue Oyster Cult’s Don’t Fear the Reaper. fillessourires.com
