Good surprise from Tokyo. Our song Child’s Game is on the first compilation album of the Japanese label Bread & Cakes Records!
We had a very nice review from the electronica/triphop/dreampop magazine Synthpop Sound… Thanks a lot to them
Don’t you love the moment in a film when the main character finally realizes that it’s her/his time to become strong and accept the mission? This moment isn’t exclusive to action films or sci-fi, but can be found in any film where we have a character who is brave and who we want to believe in. And this moment I reference, I truly think some of the amazement is because their is a fear that inherently comes with courage, a fear that doesn’t hold back.
So what does this have to do with Overland Inn, the Prague-based French duo, and their new song, Alpha? Well just take a listen and you will see! This new track is powerful and can take light and fragile sonic moments and mash them with triumph. It’s the kind of song that makes me want to go out there and be courageous despite some fear I may have. I challenge you to take Alpha with you into the day and f*cking own it. Take a listen now and get ready for the mission.
The Overland Inn family has been joined by the 2 days-old Juno! This new song is for her.
A really nice review of Between a Dog and a Wolf on Fridgefeed here.
French electronic duo Overland Inn craft music permeated with nostalgia yet warped into something entirely new. Their melodic movement and instrumentation is reminiscent of AIR’s Virgin Suicides soundtrack with shades of Portishead. It’s dark and at times unnerving yet hauntingly beautiful.
The song ‘Lovers’ showcases their musical variety, their tunes taking unexpected turns with some post/prog rock influences. It begins with lo-fi beats that conjure an eerily calm atmosphere until an unexpected bass harmony comes forth, bringing with it a dark and foreboding atmosphere. An 80s style strummed guitar section also enters, coupled with haunting harmonies from their velvety vocals and creating a uniquely “Overland Inn” sound.
‘Alpha’ throws you into the midst of the 80s with its vibrant synth tones you’re likely to hear in ‘Blade Runner.’ It shifts between a busy, synth orchestral realm into a drawn back, airy vocal tranquility.
Overland Inn’s thoughts on Lovers:
« It was written in a time where we were listening a lot to Blonderedhead. I liked the poetry of their songs, both romantic and melancholic/dramatic at the same time. ‘Lovers’ is about a couple who tries to believe in ‘true love’ as it is depicted in fairy tales, even though everybody repeats all the time that such a thing does not exist. But despite the fact that they try to believe in it, they always have to repel the ‘ghosts’, memories or broken love stories they went through.
One in Czech:
Nejsilnějším momentem je pak hned druhá píseň nahrávky « Child’s Game », která je takovou láskou na první poslech. K ostatních skladbám si posluchač bude hledat cestu déle. To ale neznamená, že ji nenajde – zapamatovatelných okamžiků lze na desce najít vícero[...]

We are back to Prague from our little Czech Tour with Apollinaire and Living. Thank you both so much, and everyone who came to our concerts!
Apollinaire is an awesome Czech band that uses a great deal of analogue synths and 80′s style chorused guitars. Check them out, they are amazing!
Living is a groovy and spaced-out electronic band from Bergen, Norway with a really good vibe on stage:
You can find our third album on overlandinn.com, iTunes, AmazonMusic, FNACJukebox, Deezer, XBox Music, and more online platforms.
We went to AnalogCut Mastering studio in Berlin to get an analog master by Marco Pellegrini.
