with acoustic and electric guitars, loop stations and rhythms sounding like an old clock or tribal dances, timid and haunted vocals, he died while hunting delivers a minimalist indiepop electronica post-everything but post-nothing, but surely embarks listeners on a sensitive and emotional trip.
The first mini-album entitled 'we used to dream awake' was released through two beautiful netlabels: Tripostal in Belgium and Totokoko in Japan. With this release, 'he died while hunting' received particular attention from the specialized press, blogs, radios and promoters. Through the 40 concerts or so played in Belgium, France, Luxembourg and Germany, 'he died while hunting' came across many artists and friends, such as Troy Von Balthazar, loïc b.o., Sleep Party People, St.Vincent, Douglas Dare, Charge Group, v.o. New Dog, A Whisper in the Noise, etc. Some songs were also used for videos, including the Puerto Rican shortfilm 'Pedalea, suds, siento el viento' directed by David Moscoso Espinoza and produced by Marel Malaret Badrena.
In the last year and a half, 'he died while hunting' has been working carefully at home on new delicate materials, trying to maintain the sincerity, the sweetness and the DIY approach while pushing new doors. Therefore, some friends have contributed playing cellos, keys, vibraphone, drums, guitars, etc. and thus creating a real family feeling in the project.
The new album 'with reckless abandon' will be released in spring 2015 on the homelabel 'dear&deers'.
