Outlandish french post-punk from Siberia
The members of the band EnFace are from Siberia, but their music can be barely related to this place. Their style is quite extraordinary even within international standarts of postpunk - "explosive knife-like postpunk with aggravating circumstances" (c) AFISHA Magazine. One more (probably the most important) feature of this band is misanthropic lyrics in French, sung in extremely emotional manner. In November 2008 EnFace has released their first album. There are many references in Russian blogs and reviews in popular musical magazines saying that owing to such songs as "Metro Trocadero" this band wouldn't be even lost in the line-ups of the biggest European festivals. Live perfomances of EnFace are an unusual fusion of reckless energy, emotional burst and bribing sincerity. And the name of the band speaks for itself: to look "en face" means to look straight into the eyes.
