Originally from Giverny in Normandy, the You Said Strange quartet, composed of brothers Eliot (lead vocals and guitar) and Martin Carrière (bass and vocals) and their childhood friends Hector Riggi (keyboard and guitar) and Matthieu Vaugelade (drums), is already armed with a first album recorded in Portland with Peter G. Holmstrom (The Dandy Warhols) at the helm and met during the first European parties of the Dandy Warhols, provided by the young Normans.

In 2017 the group even performed in Seattle live for KEXP radio following the crush of its famous host Kevin Cole for this first opus Salvation Prayer (Fuzz Club Records, 2018) discovered during a trip to Paris.

And so we come to Thousand Shadows Vol. 1, recorded this time entirely at home, in their home studio in Évreux, around an old analog console and microphones accumulated over the course of various tours. No more time constraints: it is in this place which corresponds to them, the Morris Laney Studio, that the Normans set up independently with their sound engineer Théophile Durand to assemble their new album. Written before and during Covid, this first part is the fruit of their tours, their meetings and their personal experiences. This record also exudes this stage dimension, this spontaneity to embody on LPs as well as in front of their audience. In order to perfect this recording, which is both artisanal and passionate, You Said Strange entrusted Daniel James Goodwin, producer of the latest sumptuous records by This Is The Kit, Kevin Morby and Wand, with the mixing and mastering of Thousand Shadows from its studio in Woodstock.

More down to earth than its mystical big brother Salvation Prayer, Thousand Shadows Vol. 1 embodies the acquired maturity of the project, through a very personal and humanist statement. A vibrant and intense identity emerges from this new section, also more concrete, with a sometimes social and political message. It is always the work of enthusiasts whose dazzling instruments and the coming together of songs are immediately striking. A powerful, reverberated and salutary rock.
