A sonic-minded power trio of obsessive, biting riffs and mists of asymmetrical sonic cycles. Inspired as much by French chamber music of the 19th century as by Jim ORourke or Moondog, Under The Reefs Orchestras hypnotic music unleashes a cosmic energy and leads the listener to a trance among underwater volcanos.

Guitarist Clement Nourrys gentlemanly demeanor masks the great fiery passion of a true musical virtuoso. I focus on one thing, and one thing entirely” says Nourry. For him, that one thing is the guitar. Combining the deep theoretically understanding of a skilled mathematician (which he actually is) with a true musicians soulful instinct, Nourry is as comfortable with John Fahey as he is with experimental jazz. To put it simply: he shreds.

This trip through the timeless realms of sound can be heard as a soundtrack of the ecological apocalypse we live in.

Under The Reefs Orchestra is an instrumental power trio that blurs the lines between jazz and alternative rock. Clément Nourry, guitarist, composer and close collaborator of Yokaï and Nicolas Michaux is joined by the saxophonist Marti Melia (Flat Earth Society) and the drummer Louis Evrard (Robbing Millions, Ottla). Together they create a soundtrack haunted by the ghosts of Moondog and Adrien Belew.
