31/03/2009: First Lyncelia Concert

Lyncelia 10 Years concerts

10 years ago I was playing the very first Lyncelia show. A great experienced that changed my life.

10 years later, still on stage with Lyncelia (and some more weight…)

Between these 2 dates almost everything has changed except my passion for music and my faith for Gothic style. It’s not a fashion for us but a way of life.

We added some pictures of our last concert on our Gallery page. Videos are coming soon.

The concert was awesome, we had much pleasure for our return on stage. Yann was very anxious and nervous cause it was his first concert for years. Great venue, great sound and great audience.

We met lots of nice people and received lots of energy and congratulations. Received good reaction about our new songs from our upcoming album and we’re proud of this show and opening for Pink Turns Blue.

See you for our next concert in Paris on saturday 25 May @Concorde Atlantique opening the Secret Night Gothic Party.

The sound of Self-Mystery Girl

Some people ask me how I made the guitar sound of the new song “Self-Mystery Girl”, so I write this article to explain my goal and how I reached it.

First of all the guitar I used for this song is a Fender Stratocaster american model. It features three single coil pickups and I used the position bridge/middle in clean sound.

Lyncelia Fender Self Mystery Girl

After the guitar, I wanted an analog feel so during last years I took analog pedal and I can say that the sound is largely superior to digital ones. This is not a legend that analog pedals are more musical with their unperfection than Digital ones with their perfect restitution of sound.

For “Self-Mystery Girl” I used three stomp pedals:

The MXR Flanger has a really interesting sound, from very subtle to outrageous Jet plane effect. The sound is less brilliant than an Electric Mistress and it fits perfectly this the very clean and brilliant sound of the Fender. While Flanger is a modulation effects, it could be too much but the MXR always fits in the mix without being too presents.

The Delay pedals is an Electro Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man. It’s an analog delay but with tap tempo sync on 1/4. The sound is very dreamy and aerial and always musical. It gives the perfect level of space without being too invading due to its analog path. The sound is largely warmer than Digital Delay that tends to be too clean for me now (I used it for many years and since I played the Memory Man, Digital Delay seems to be a little less personal for me).

And last, I used the TC Electronic Arena Reverb. It’s a Digital Delay (the only one on my pedal board) but the sound is very warm, pristine and pure. It gives the extra space I wanted without being too much. Reverb tends to drown easily your sound in the mix but not the Arena, all fits perfect in the mix.

I didn’t talked about the amp. I used Native Instruments Guitar Rig 5 Pro amp simulator. For this song I used a Marshall Plexi simulation. It’s been a while I used this software and I love it cause it’s simple but very versatile. I used amp simulation cause I can get the sound I want anywhere, any time. No need to do real mic positions in front of a real amp, all is set in the software.

“Self-Mystery Girl” new single and video available

Have you ever felt the mystery of a girl just by looking to her eyes?

Our new hit single video “Self-Mystery Girl” is now available on our channel and the song is also available on Digital Download on our shop www.lyncelia.com/lyncelia-shop and on Bandcamp www.lyncelia.bandcamp.com .

It’s the first song since our last album “Forsaken Innocence” (2016) and it starts a process of posting songs all along the year, and at least it will form an entire album of 7 songs.

This song is anchored in ColdWave reminding the best hours of The Cure or The Sisters of Mercy but with the particularity that characterizes Lyncelia since our very first album “Lovelorn” in 2010.

With “Self-Mystery Girl” We makes the perfect synthesis between our past, present and future and all these influences by mixing Gothic-Rock with ColdWave.

 

 

New single out on 22nd June 2018

Lyncelia Self-Mystery Girl Available 22 June 2018
