Centered around brothers Philippe and Hervé Lomprez, Trisomie 21 (often abbreviated to T21) are a French cold wave group who have endured since the early '80s, spanning styles such as brooding, experimental post-punk as well as a more danceable synth pop sound. The two Lomprez brothers were initially joined by keyboard player Jean-Michel Matuszak (who also served as their manager) and bassist Pascal Tison, and their music was influenced by dark post-punk acts like Joy Division and the Cure as well as the experimentation of the Residents and Yello. Belgian label Stechak released T21's debut mini-album, Le Repos des Enfants Heureux, in 1983. Bassist Laurent Dagnicourt replaced Tison for the group's 1984 full-length Passions Divisées. Emphasizing the band's rhythm section while keeping their keyboard-heavy experimentation intact, the album included the haunting "La Fête Triste," which would emerge as one of their signature tunes.

T21 are Philippe and Hervé Lomprez, two brothers from Denain, in the North of France, near Lille (200 km from Paris).

The name, pronounced tree-zho-mee vahnt-ay-un, derives from Trisomy 21, the medical term for the extra chromosome resulting in Down Syndrome.
Soft Kill
Soft Kill
Soft Kill's introduction to the world was 2011's "An Open Door" and since then, despite many ups and downs and false starts, the band has issued several limited releases and played sporadic yet memorable shows. 2014 marks their return with the reissue of their debut and a new album of guitar-driven doom & gloom that borrows from projects like Asylum Party, For Against and Chameleons UK.
