Alternative trio CALVA LOUISE have released new single & music video THE ODDS today. It features on their upcoming concept album EUPHORIC, due on 20th August via FRKST / 300 Entertainment.

“The Odds refers to the probabilities of facing risks, where being authentic allows us to glimpse new paths under the guidance of intuition. Tuning in with nature helps us to realize how valuable life is, which is not only clinging to wanting to see the results of each effort, but knowing how to enjoy the journey and each present moment, since each experience could represent our last battle in this world” explains vocalist & guitarist Jess Allanic.

Driven by Jess’s creative vision and ambitious songwriting, forthcoming album EUPHORIC is CALVA LOUISE’s most multifaceted work to date. Influenced by graphic novels and Sci-Fi movies, the record provides a mesmerising introduction to an alternate reality. “EUPHORIC tells a story about the duality of the human being and the different perceptions of reality. The lyrics detail episodes of a dreamer’s experiences as an inner conversation with his other self, his counterpart, to experience freedom and have an encounter with the unknown” adds Jess.

To complete the album’s theme, CALVA LOUISE will be launching both a graphic novel and animated film. Created by Jess by using software such as Blender, the 45 minute animation will feature the band in a dream of the main protagonist. The graphic novel will also be the second in a series with artwork created by Jess.

Our passion for audiovisual production is constantly intertwined with the concept of the album and that is why each new step to take becomes a new challenge. It is as if each completed experience gradually reveals the signs that guide us on our way. The perception we have of this adventure shows us horizons that seem to be beyond our rational understanding as artists, and in order to see clearly we try to express these experiences through visual effects, as a complement to the music and the lyrics of the songs”, says the band.

They plunged head first into the UK’s burgeoning live circuit, sharing stages with the likes of Highly Suspect, Albert Hammond Jr. and Razorlight.Their eclectic sound is a molotov cocktail that really works, encompassing searing guitar hooks from Jess, futuristic fuzz bass from Alizon and explosive drums from Ben. To date, the trio have landed plaudits from BBC Radio 1, DIY, Clash and Radio X.
