Noze / Dring

The new album by Nôze is called Dring, and is out now on Get Physical.

Made up of Ezechiel Pailhes and Nicolas Sfintescu, Nôze has never been a conventional house duo. Far from groovy and hypnotic, their style is rambunctious and tongue-in-cheek, thanks in part to the raspy, drunk-sounding vocals that lead most of their tracks. Dring (German for "urgent") is their first album since 2008's Songs on the Rocks, and according to a press release, it flirts with elements of klezmer, reggae and cumbia. The duo's usual crew of collaborators lend their guitar, trombone, sax and clarinet skills, while more high-profile cameos come from Riva Starr, who collaborated with Nôze on his recent single I Was Drunk, and fellow live ensembles Wareika and dOP. Nôze will be touring around Europe in support of the album for the next two months.
