A crossroad between styles and sounds, Aucan’s music is based on a unique energy: synthesis of the opposites. Digital and analog, cleanliness and distortion, melody and dissonance, quietness and strongness arm free-fall structures, open to direct light, leave the listener inside obscurity.

Gifted of an hammering rhythmical compactness, and of a deadly technical awareness, the band’s obsessive combinations contain nonetheless an emotive tissue spent on crooked roads long time ago, incarnate the need to yell out, to get lost in order to discover yourself. In 2008 they release their debut album on both labels Africantape (Hey!Tonal, Passe Montagne, Threesecondkiss) and Ruminance (Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Rachel Grimes, Cheval de Frise, Chevreuil).

After a year across Eeurope, supporting mean international underground bands (Antipop Consortium, Zu, Sleeping people, Il Teatro Degli Orrori, DJ Rupture, Hey!Tonal) the band toured Europe in February 2010, that was followed by a long East/North European tour, in May 2010.

Aucan released a special, secret EP in March, on Africantape and Ruminance again, to introduce their brand new mix of dark ambient landscapes and dubstep broken riffs. Tune in…
