“Rendez-Vous are ready to explode.”
Rendez-Vous was founded in 2012 by Francis Mallari and Elliot Bethault. A few months later, they added Maxime Gendre and Simon Dubourg. Blackened post-punk scenes, the group's scorched riffs and emphatic vocals recall everyone from early Bauhaus to The Sound, and even elements of Joy Division. The band released their first self-titled EP in 2014 for Zappruder Records. The band start touring across Europe in the summer of 2015.
In 2016, Rendez-Vous released a second EP, Distance, mixed by Ben Greenberg from The Men, for their new label AVANT! Records. The self-titled single "Distance" was included in Les Inrockuptibles magazine's "100 best songs of the year." In June 2018, Rendez-Vous released ‘Double Zero’ extract from their first LP, Superior State. The title track was released on September 14. On October 24, it released ‘Sentimental Animal’ with a video clip in which members of the band appear for the first time. Clash named it track of the day.
In a similar vein to Iceage, say, the five-piece have an identity of their own, one that becomes instantly clear on debut album. Currently shaping up to be this country's next great musical export after the likes of La Femme and Christine & the Queens, theirs is an uncanny coldwave sound that simultaneously throws us back to those golden postpunk years without ever completely removing its foot from the here and now.
