Ahead of Franck Vigroux’s forthcoming Totem, out May 24 via Aesthetical Recordings, the French composer has released a teaser video that…well, let’s just say it ain’t exactly Wallace and Gromit. A stark departure from Vigroux’s usual hyperdigital visuals, the teaser heads in a more organic direction, but still manages to capture the cynicism suggested by the musician’s harsh, confrontational sound. Check it out for yourself:

Totem explores the tensions between ancient and modern mythologies through its ten tracks. A fascinating pursuit, no doubt, but judging from the album’s cover, maybe Franck needs a hug amid all the theorising.

While we wait, Vigroux has also released the audio for the album’s second track “Capaupire.” Check it out down below, followed by the full tracklist, and pre-order Totem here on vinyl, CD, and digital.
