David Mc Kenna, the Quietus:
"Omertà, on their first album, may be more like second cousins in musical terms but there's a crossover in personnel and labels. Florence Giroud, artist and Omertà's driving force, met Jérémie Sauvage and Mathieu Tilly – part of the cast of musicians she assembled for this album and founders of the Standard In-Fi label - at the Êcole des Beaux-Arts de Valence while they were already members of the group France with Gourdon. Giroud's approach advertises its conceptual nature to a greater extent than the La Novià groups, with the recording being part of an ongoing projects spanning various disciplines called 'l'Opera XXS', while the lyrics (delivered as spoken word) were taken as required from longer texts written by a writer friend in response to her prompts, and with the island of Corsica as a central inspiration.
If the whole album sounded like 'La Voix de L'Araignée' – a strange tale of metamorphosis underpinned by discreetly post-rocky guitar-and-bass interplay and wisps of synth – it would already be lovely. But its world of waking dreams and early morning clarity also finds space for dub-wise approaches in a style similar to Peaking Lights ('Cock Tails'), while the title of 'Devenir Liquide' would be equally appropriate to describe the stunning 'À L'Interieur' wherein a luscious groove, with its reggae-derived bassline and metallic-sounding percussion, becomes ever more liquid as the track progresses. It's a beautifully crafted debut."
