Police Des Moeurs is a synth pop band formed in Montreal in 2010 and
they give the francophone perspective on what Black Marble, Lust For
Youth, and Cold Showers did in English in 2012, as well as fitting in
with the output of Lescop. Members are Francis, Anouk, Fred and
Their debut full-length, after some quicky old out singles, is
permeated by a cold, melodic and nostalgic music for broken hearts and
dark minds. PDM is the soundtrack for the nuclear night, a transition
moment between the end of utopia and the final ecological disaster. The
world after the future.
PDM main influences and interests are underground aestheticisms
(1979-1981), industrial transformations and the process of
electrification, norms and deviance, nuclear and environmental anxiety
as well as paranoia, secret agents, spies and political extremists.
