5 stars DÜN, the name of the band, refers to Dune, the Sand Planet serial of Science-fiction books by Frank Herbert. At least I think the name is related - one of the track is named Arrakis, which is certainly inspired by Herbert.

How appropriate!!

And let me explain why. I'll try to be brief.

"Eros", the one and the only album by this crazy French combo is not thematic or conceptual. At least I don't think so. However, it's focused, powerful - and it's bursting with ideas - you will hear more ideas by listening to "Eros" for five minutes than some bands' entire discographies. This is dense. This is mean.

Ideas, themes, sounds, melodies, bursts of energy are swirling, intersecting each other, bumping into each other, transforming themselves. Like a structure of a sand, every tiny little piece will randomly end up somewhere, and the whole sand picture will be beautiful, over and over again.


This is one of those rare records that sound like the band came out of nowhere and invented the music for themselves, knitting it with wisdom, love and passion.

Influences? Similarities? Jazz, Gamelan music, Debussy? Take the best of all of them.
