En décembre 2019, Elvis Aloys part pour le tessin, région la plus chaleureuse de Suisse où la neige tombe sur les palmiers. Il y enregistre son album solo au Spazio Morel, une maison mal chauffée où il fait plus froid qu’ailleurs en Suisse paradoxalement. Elvis amène ses fragments de chansons qu’il enregistre spontanément, le tout en dédicace à sa famille - l’album sera donc titré « About My Family ». Il en resort des merveilles poétiques, des hits d’une douceur mélancolique et des expérimentations analogiques. Pour celui qui évolue au sein de groupes touffus comme Zahnfleisch, After 5:08 ou encore Service Fleisch, on se régale de découvrir son « journal intime ». Un album solo où Elvis Aloys se promène main dans la main avec les fantômes de Syd Barret et Manuel Götsching.

« Life is terrible and everything’s gonna burn, but I’m never scared because you’re my family »


December 2019, Elvis Aloys went to Ticino, the most tropical area of Switzerland where the snow falls on the palm trees, to record his first solo album at the Spazio Morel, a house badly heated where it’s colder than anywhere else in the country. With the cheap swiss beers « prix garantie » and its new design, Elvis also brought some fragments of his songs that he recorded spontaneously. The result shows poetic marvels, « hits » with a sweet melancholy and analog experimentations. After seeing him playing with the kraut-rock band Zahnfleisch, After 05:08 or Service Fleish, we’re very pleased to discover his "personal diary". A solo album where Elvis Aloys walks side by side with the ghosts of Syd Barret and Manuel Götsching.
