Sat firmly in the world of dreamy and quirky pop-rock, Stéphane Milochevitch is gearing up for his new album ‘La Bonne Aventure’ releasing later this year. Stéphane Milochevitch, also known as Thousand, fits into the mould of French pop-rock where light synths sweep over acoustic guitars and hushed, reflective male vocals. It is something the French have a particular knack for and Milochevitch has been working on making his music bolder and braver in recent years. He described his 2020 album ‘Au Paradis’ as sounding half-wake, half asleep and whilst I think that dream quality carries over, Stéphane wants to explore more genres, tempos, and styles and melt them all together. Long-time readers know I love a genre mash-up so I’m eager to see where this leads.
‘Comme un Agile’ is the lead single for the upcoming album, which is due for release on 10th September. It mixtures fast talky vocals, an earworm of cheesy synth riffs for an anthem and glossy picturesque pop-rock. There is a slight corporate vaporwave about its aesthetic where you feel the song is laidback and inviting but actually, it is a bit sinister and sad underneath. Having shed his previous name Thousands, Stéphane Milochevitch says this album will be his most complete artistic vision to date.
Enjoy the music video for ‘Comme un Agile’ below, the single is out now. For all things Stéphane Milochevitch, follow him on Bandcamp.
