Far & Fast is a song about loneliness but with someone else, isolation in an empty space, losing your breath because you can’t leave.
You need to be here, but you can’t stand it. You love the one surrounding you in this situation but you can t stop feeling guilty and lonely. And being here is making the other one so lonely… This song was written during the first COVID isolation…
Who’s Droïd Fantôm?
Droïd Fantôm is Mickael Montaroux’ (Single/Guitarist of Flèche) solo project. After Flèche went on hiatus after their last album, Mickael wrote a lot of songs in his head he decided to go alone and start his own personal music project. To have a more impact on the album, Loic Salmon (Drummer of Flèche) helped him with the drums in the studio.
Emptiness Takes Time is Droïd Fantöm’s first album. An attempt of musical independence, to put together what he had in mind without compromise.This album was composed and recorded at home all alone except for the drums and some overdubs with Alexandre Mazarguil at UFO Studio. This LP is clearly influenced by the 90 indie scene from grunge to shoegaze with an emo touch : clear versus vs. heavy chorus and surprising breaks…. With a lot of fuzz (never enough fuzz on chorus…)! It’s simple, direct and sincere.
