New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Fraternal Parisian duo, WuW have today released their sophomore album, Rétablir L'Eternité. The follow up to 2018's Rien Ne Nous Sera Épargnér, Rétablir L'Eternité is out now via Prosthetic Records.

The band comments:
"It is strange to release an album in these strange times. Strange to have named it Rétablir L'Eternité (Restore Eternity) months ago now that everything is about to stop for a while. Nevertheless, we hope you could find a way to escape from all this while listening to it, have an inner journey through unknown landscapes and enjoy it as much as we're proud of it."

Rétablir L'Eternité is an invitation to slow down and immerse yourself in experimental, progressive instrumental missives. Composed and recorded between January 2018 and June 2019 in their own studio just outside Paris, brothers Benjamin and Guillaume Colin's writing for Rétablir L'Eternité was more instinctive than ever. By allowing their unconscious to permeate their output, the music of WuW serves as a form of catharsis for its creators - letting the unknown be known.

On the recording, they enlisted the saxophone skills of Bruce Lamont (Yakuza, Corrections House), whilst Sam Kün (Welcome-X) uses his voice as an instrument - a musical effect - rather than as traditional singing. Mixing was handled by Benjamin, before being mastered by Collin Jordan at Boiler Room in Chicago.

The classical-meets-experimental ethos of WuW means that Rétablir L'Eternité may be welcome listening for fans of Amenra, Anna von Hausswolff or Ben Frost, however they are a band that remain elusive in terms of easy categorisation. Their cinematic soundscapes are heavier on the drone-ambient and metal elements compared to their debut, but the tracks on Rétablir L'Eternité retain a majestic and purifying quality. The artist Brian Cougar has captured this feeling of dark vertigo in the spellbinding artwork.

The album title translates approximately to 'restore eternity' which for the brothers means that they hope the album offers listeners a chance to take a moment out from the present and to envelope themselves in the moment; just a small part of eternity.

Rétablir L'Eternité track list:
1. Ce Silence Qui Nous Délivre De Tout
2. Danser Dans Le Champ Des Battements Du Temps
3. Assiégé Par Les Cris Du Sursis
4. En Souvenir Des Jours Que Nous N'Aurons Pas Vécus
5. Dans L'Intense Clarté De La Solitude
