Interview de Seb El Zin par Frédéric Taddeï.
About our last album “Black Nazar Corporation” :
The original texts are in French.
“Between abrasive rock and experimental sounds, ITHAK’s album is unlikeanything known and denotes the current musical production. A risky bet but made masterfully, for a totally original result […]
ITHAK swims against the current, granting itself a total artistic freedom […]. A noisy and unclassifiable manna, but ITHAK manages to impose its languageso special and terribly remarkable. “
Raphael Duprez / Indiemusic.fr – May 2016
“[…] In a surprising but so gratifying melting-pot ITHAK proposes a creation that spontaneously makes us think of free jazz with a post-punk and electro-pop dimension feeded by oriental roots and probably as many psychedelic stamps […] do not say you do not like before listening, you would regret it for sure! “
Fred Delforge / ZicaZic.com – March 2016
“[…] Oriental sounds, mixed with the power of a futuristic industrial rock. Sung in French, English and Arabic, both trip and road trip, this new EP that likes to mix genres is a great success. “
Hélène Salimbeni / nouvelle-vague.com – March 2016
“[…] Hard to put it in a box (and that’s the first thing that has challenged us in a time where everything is formatted). Rock? Punk? Free Jazz? Groove? Electro? Oriental music? Ultimately ithak stands on the borders of all these styles. What if this reality that seems parallel was THE reality?
Look closer!! ITHAK’s music fits perfectly in today’s multicultural chaos, doesn’t it? … Black Nazar Corporation is a complex album, but completely free from all constraints.”
