Mathieu Zub is a self-taught guitarist and instrumentalist, was in a a bunch of rock bands, and then discovered LE DANCEFLOOR. He put his fingers to a synth and out came Museum.
Hailing from Paris, France Zub is oozing with that certain ”je ne sais quoi” that may be interpreted more accurately through visuals rather than sounds. Inspired by sci-fi/horror classics such as Blade Runner, Planet of the Apes, The Shining, and Alien, Zub seems to be trying to re-create these landscapes.
His debut EP comes to you via Blackstrobe Records. Having checked out the EP in entirety, I can safely say “November” is the wild card. Where as the other tracks are quite dark and lean heavier in the trance/techno area, “November” is like a breath of fresh air — synth pop at its finest.
Despite the title, it might be perfectly suited for the upcoming spring! So open the windows, pull up the blinds, dance while your hair is still wet, wipe the condensation from the mirror, and tell yourself the world is there for the taking.
