about

🇬🇧 LA BATTUE is an extended family of sister, brother, and friend, and their first EP Search Party takes us on a 6 track visit to their universe, fundamentally indie pop, influenced by the repetitive and dreamlike music of Steve Reich, the experimentation and love of analog found in Broadcast , Stereolab’s verve, Local Natives’ and Grizzly Bear’s orchestral pop. The songwriting is simple, effective and catchy, and particularly strong in vocal harmonies, like a ray of sunshine.

🇫🇷 Famille (re)composée à l'univers bien singulier, LA BATTUE nous offre à travers ce premier EP "Search Party", 6 titres d'obédience indie pop bercés par la musique répétitive et onirique de Steve Reich, les expérimentations et le goût de l’analogique de Broadcast, la verve de Stereolab, la pop orchestrale de Local Natives et de Grizzly Bear.
Une écriture simple, efficace et entêtante où les harmonies vocales occupent une place de choix, renforçant le côté sunshine de certaines compositions.

Track Name: Big Picture
I’m up, you’re down, little did I know
You’ll turn left, I’ll go right, which way should I go?
Fire burning blazing lights, reaping what we sow //
How can we, really heal, when facing such a wall?

Oh oh, oh oh woh

Black or white, left or right, how could I ever know?
Then I was, left behind, now I am hiding low
Fire burning, blazing lights, reaping what we sow
Rarely, have I been, so utterly distraught.

Big town, how will I ever know,
Who I can trust, That’s the worst of it all,
You were, you were there, hiding

Big town, how the hell will I know,
Who’s the real deal, Who can I carry the load?
You were, you were there, hiding

Big Town, the friends and foes,
That hang around, out of sight laying low,
You were, you were there, waiting
Track Name: Sailor, Save Her !
In the dark quiet night,
I didn’t hear you come in
Though your footsteps were light,
We couldn’t avoid colliding,
In the swell

You bruised my forehead and didn’t say sorry

It’s so unreal, we are falling, as we climb
It can’t be real, we are slipping, as we stand

As you opened your eyes, we were completely blinded
Couldn’t make out just why, we were the ones now stranded
Underestimating misfortune,
We’re out of luck, who knew ?

It’s so unreal, we are falling, as we climb
It can’t be real, we are stranded, in the dark


If a sailor, saves her ?
Track Name: Quicksand
Even though it can’t go on the tinder in the fire keeps on burning
Track Name: ATTACUS ATLAS
Hey, know about that day,
everything about us changed,
Memories so quaint, now far away
Hey, I would never swear,
It was the best I could behave
Try not to forget, the mistakes we made

Hey, I don’t want to play
Yet another creepy game
Where we’ll get all mixed up,
and get tangled hair,
So, we can no longer, no longer not ever,
Untangle one another

Don’t let me change my mind
Won’t ever be this self-inclined
Living blindfolded, we slowly declined // Reclined

Say, how could it have gone,
How could it have gone so wrong?
All these restless nights,
as I toss and turn
Still, I just can’t get rid, of the pictures of your face, that camp around my bed,

Don’t let me change my mind
Won’t ever be this self-inclined
Living blindfolded, we slowly declined // Reclined
Track Name: The Moon
All is brighter all is taller, all is easier on the moon

Now there’s no-one around, can you hear me? Can you hear me ?
Now there’s no-one around, can you hear me? You can’t hear me ?

It’s been a while now, since I’ve been back to my hometown, my hometown,
It’s a long way away, you have to go through space and time, through space and time
It gets so lonely out here, no-one to listen, no-one to hear,
It gets a little bit lonely out here, no-one to talk to no one to fear

Now there’s no-one around, can you hear me? Can you hear me ?
Now there’s no-one around, can you hear me? You can’t hear me ?

Leave it all behind

Now there’s no-one around, can you hear me? Can you hear me ?
Now there’s no-one around, can you hear me? You can’t hear me ?
Track Name: Cheeky Monkey
Who put a dress on the cheeky monkey ?
Dancing away like there’s no tomorrow
Shake shake shake a cheeky wink
Forget about life and all it’s sorrow

Little monkey dressed in pink
Dancing away like there’s no tomorrow
Shake shake shake a cheeky wink
Forget about life and all it’s sorrow

Unaware of
All the hearsay
Surrounding his appearance
Cheeky monkey a dress will wear
Whenever he does appear
He makes an entrance
Cheeky monkey does not really care.
