Press Text
“The river that everything drags is known as violent, but nobody calls violent the margins that arrest her.” This quote from Bertolt Brecht is the best way to portray FLEUVE, latest album of belgian outfit THOT.

After a decade of challenging its music across several albums, EPs, videos, alternative versions, remixes and european tours, the gang lead by Grégoire Fray is going to bring a breath of fresh air in the industrial-rock and post-rock genres. Produced by Magnus Lindberg (Cult of Luna) and engineered in live circumstances, FLEUVE features 9 songs built around a powerful drums/bass/guitar trio, on which passionate vocals, heavy synths, clarinet laments and bulgarian choirs melt together perfectly. Thereby, FLEUVE is a luminous ode to the european continent and its cultural history, to nature’s immuable inspiration, to women and transcendance.

THOT is part of the Europavox network and lately, has been touring Europe all along 2018, nailing key festivals like Dour Festival (Be), Dunk!Festival (Be), Bergmal Festival (Ch), Žižkovská noc (Cz), Soundrive Festival (Pl) and even Zandari Festa in Seoul (Kr). They also participate in belgian artist Marie-Jo Lafontaine latest movie, “Brussels Swings”.


"With a superb black and white shot of a swirling waterway as the cover art, their latest record stirs up and sweeps along many emotions" (Europavox) //

"Grégoire Fray nahm mit seiner Band den ersten Abend des bergmal, stellte alles auf Kopf und bildete aus den Einzelstücken eine neue Vision der experimentellen und harten Musik." ( //

"Imagine if At The Drive In decided to have a make out session with Mars Volta – their offspring would sound sort of like this! What I dig about THOT is that they are not following musical trends, they create music that they are passionate about." (CVLT NATION, USA) //

"Znowu Belgia i znowu kompletnie inna stylistyka opanowana w równie imponujący sposób. Każdy z utworów na tym krążku nazwano po jednej z rzek i nawet załapała się nasza Odra, która posłużyła za tytuł jednego z najciekawszych momentów tego specyficznego połączenia industrialu, rocka i romantycznego nihilizmu w stylu Nicka Cave'a." (Soundrive, Pl) //

​​"Das neue Album des belgischen Post-Rock-Trios THOT hört auf den Namen FLEUVE und ist der Nachfolger des 2014er Werks „The City that Disappears“. Post-Rock einen eigenen Stempel aufzudrücken ist nicht leicht, doch THOT beweisen, dass es doch möglich ist." (Pretty In Noise, Germany)​ //

​"Like the flowing tide at the end of a river’s course, the band effortlessly resonates between the lighter moods of the post-punk revivalists and the darker atmospheres of artists such as Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Depeche Mode, and the Black Heart Rebellion​. (...) An impressive work of art, no matter the listener’s taste in sound.​ (Arctic Drones, USA)​ //
