GaBLé is like a cock and bull story or a fairy tale that only happens to others, a B-movie that would have slept with a Z-movie to end up as an Oscar winner. For 10 years now, this incredible trio has become established worldwide through their pop music. In 2007 after 3 CD-R albums, GaBLé found itself releasing "7 Guitars With A Cloud Of Milk" it's first album on the mysterious Bristish label LOAF Recordings. Quickly discovered by a trained ear, the group was rewarded with the CQFD Inrockuptibles prize in 2008 and was invited to play many European venues. In 2011, GaBLé released "CuTe HoRSe CuT", just after their EP "I'm OK", their answer to Daniel Johnston's "Hi, how are you ?". They then went on an intensive 10 month tour all over France (Trans Musicales, Eurockéennes, Rockomotives, 3 Eléphants, Festival de Marne, Art Rock...) and throughout the world (The Big Chill and The Great Escape in the UK, Les Nuits Botaniques in Brussels, The Danish Spot festival, FME in Quebec, Iceland Airwaves in Reykjavik...). At the beginning of 2012, GaBLé finally settled down for a few months, taking time to compose a new album while they still gave a few concerts here and there.

It all started with a huge move, a new house, a new way of doing things, a new records label. Retreating into the countryside, the trio took the time to listenn discuss, and swap views after the last month of touring. After which, and with feedback between mates from dawn 'til dusk and well beyond, the band brought even more instruments on this album. One after another, a trombonist and guitarist buddies all dropped in. The mixing then lasted a couple of weeks before they finally completed this third album : "MuRDeD", 13 free uninhibited songs all GaBLé-made : hip hop, pop, noise and folk. This new release illustrates more than ever before that they are not just musicians, GaBLé are above all sound craftsmen. "MuRDeD" has been meticulously put together down to the last detail with unexpected new tones which upsets musical traditions. An intricate moulding of textures, rhythms and atmospheres, such is GaBLé's talent, here at it's height.

In its unique way, the group redefines the contours of so-called "experimental" music, making it welcoming, warm and uniting. The GaBLé touch appeals to all, not only the most trained ears. What often seems to start as a simple folk ballad turns into a concentrated mixture of inventiveness on every level of structure, melody  and vocals. While remaining inexplicably catchy, GaBLé make every track a fascinating world to be discovered as listening proceeds. Despite being obvious, we're quickly forced to conclude that it still never ceases to be unpredictable. What will the album's impact be on stage ? This is what you'll find out in 2013 when Mathieu, Gaëlle and Thomas go back on tour, taking "MuRDeD" in their suitcase.
