Newer Not


Newer Not is the solo project of French artist Régis Lemberthe, initiated in Amsterdam by the end of 2008, after the dismissal of his former band Fungi. From this 3 pieces formation he kept influences of course, but also the habit of keeping a keyboard at hand while composing, which will become the central element of Newer Not's music. The outcome, however, is radically different. The energetic, live-oriented music turned into a more intimate, introspective work. Read more on Last.fm
Newer Not is the solo project of French artist Régis Lemberthe, initiated in Amsterdam by the end of 2008, after the dismissal of his former band Fungi. From this 3 pieces formation he kept influences of course, but also the habit of keeping a keyboard at hand while composing, which will become the central element of Newer Not's music. The outcome, however, is radically different. The energetic, live-oriented music turned into a more intimate, introspective work. Structures - although they never completely disappear - tend to fade out and leave space for melodies, which weave together in a complex fabric.

Repetitiveness is generally banned from Newer Not’s work, except in some specific compositions in which it forms the very basis of a slowly evolving pattern. There are no lyrics in Newer Not’s current compositions, although all songs are closely linked with literary activities. songs such as ‘Matches make a city, miniature.’ or ‘Tsunami dripples’ take their inspiration and title from Lemberthe's novels. They can therefore be considered as soundtracks for literature. Other influences can be as diverse as math-rock, live-electronica, post-hardcore, post-rock (bands such as Pivot, The Knife, Battles, The Blood Brothers, Cult of Luna, Shora, Red Sparowes, Erik Satie to name just a few). Although none of these can be clearly spotted in Newer Not’s music, they all contribute a great deal in its elaboration. Régis Lemberthe now lives, works and composes in Berlin.
