DBFC – Jenks

Vergangene Woche erschien das Debüt-Album des Pariser Rave-Pop-Duos DBFC. Auf sehr lose, fast poetische Weise haben DAVID SHAW und DOMBRANCE die zehn fantastischen Tracks von Jenks exklusiv für Popmonitor kommentiert…

JENKS 

…is a club I (David) used to go to when I was younger

When messin about with Dombrance  in the studio we thought it’d be fun to imagine it as the last place of the resistance where humans and creatures would meet and get away from thos troubled world and anything would be possible

We loved the idea of a classic pop song structure at first and then this really long psychedelic bridge in the middle

‚Jenks‘ (pretty much like all the songs on the record) was us both performing in our studio in a live situation doing a lot of improv that we’d later assemble and edit

BAD RIVER 

Leather leather reptilian slither

We tought of it as a liquid drug used in the club created by the creatures for humans

DISCO COCO 

Party name at Jenks club

Refering to Jenks also as a temple, the temple of dissent and freedom

Got a bit of B52’s ingredient when it was produced by David Byrne

Inside good

Outside bad

Its a bit of an odd dance number

IN THE CAR 

About two brothers

About us

Our desert song

Our highway by night

Our without a care in the world song

A song about being there for each other

Quite emotional and mystical this one

THE RIDE 

About someone very dear to us who passed away who left us too early

Always there with us

We ride together eternally

This one is also very spontaneous

Quite intense and physical when we play it live

Very driving and fast

NEW LIFE

Being tired of fighting wars

Put down your guns

AUTONOMIC 

Life in the off world

Connection is made between humans and creatures

It’s finally happened

More of a psychedelic techno number

Us both on our synths and drum machines and this is what came out

STAYING HOME 

When you’re at home and just everything seems to go wrong

feeling down and lost

The will to try and get out of that state but you just cant bebothered

Tomorrow is another day

SINNER 

More human than human

The creature has surpassed Its maker, who has trouble accepting it

All started with synths drones and us messing with our chainof guitar pedals and other effects, Dombrance already had the verse part we then developped together

We really wanted the vocals to be psychedelic and dreamy and cotton

THE REST OF THE WORLD

It’s cold and dark and you just need to get home to your lovedones

The perfect number to carry you back home

It was the end of the day after a great studio session We hadput our coats on and ready to leave when Dombrance had a call from his wife saying its cold and dark hurry home and during the call our gear was running and sequences goingrandom…he hung up and we wrote it in 12mns…still with ourcoats on.
