Sisyphes \si.zif\ is the new, Margate-based project by former La Houle guitarist and songwriter Geoffrey Papin, along with his partner in crime, Clémentine Blue (Tiger Lion), John Davies (Michael A Grammar, Traams) and Jimi Tormey (Gang).
In preparation of the release of their debut album later in 2020, the band has now released an eponymous EP, containing their first two singles and a brand new track, ‘Nos Regrets’. Subtitled ‘On a 2.0 Man facing the annihilation of his humanity’, the track’s lyrics reflect a state of uncertainty which will resonate with many, the voice of a fragmented, even jittery personality set against a percussive landscape that still manages to maintain some of the dreamier elements that are more typical of the Sisyphes sound.
“Nos Regrets is by far the most poetic song of this album. It’s a 5/4 time signature but robotic with a strong grove. The track explores the idea of a human encased by a digital algorithm which he cannot escape, slowly being desensitized.“Geoffrey
