Arthur Ashin isn’t a man who believes in safety. There was already such a marked difference between Autre Ne Veut‘s self-titled debut (New Depth, still a tune) and the louder follow-up Anxiety, and now he’s taken another leap with new album Age of Transparency, which uses the same motif on the sleeve as its predecessor. World War Pt. 2, our first taste of the new LP, sees Ashin play with his sound even more and deliver a suitably madcap and unpredictable piece of work. Even if he does look like a runaway Billy Zane in the video.
