Ok, I finally fully understand the name Acid Washed especially after watching one of the band’s videos (by Anthony Burrill) – sharp, clean, and colorful just like their music and one of my occasional acid flashbacks. There’s definitely a disco, post-punk, 80s thing going on in there with hints of pop and bits of corniness.
Acid Washed is collaboration between 2 french guys (Richard d’Alpert and Andrew Claristidge) and a whole slew of interesting industry folk – Xaver Naudascher & Gavin Russom (Death From Abroad/Supersoul/DFA), Christophe Chassol (Sébastien Tellier, Phoenix), Christian Kreuz (Get Physical), Arnaud Rebotini/Blackstrobe, Turzi (Record Makers), Lippie, Barbara Panther, Alan Gay, King of Kong (Max Skiba & Artur 8). Good mix… no pun intended ;)
They’re trying to be all secretive and mysterious from what I’ve read so we can’t say much more. Basically another enigmatic French Nu Disco/ electronic duo.
