Among a multiple choice of music styles, Dot Legacy, not wanting to know where to stand, decides to dig in them all while keeping a solid rock ‘n’ roll base.
These four young french rockers make you jump between Stoner, Noise and even Post-Rock, often using wild or sophisticated subgenres absolved from meaning whatsoever. They fought to find a unique mark and sound plus developed a stage act worth skipping bowling, between And So I Watch You From Afar and Health.
Dot Legacy was brought together back in 2009. Far from the idea of playing around the world and releasing albums with international record companies, these four high school kids had no idea what was coming at them when they started rehearsing in a Paris basement.
After taking the time to evolve, Dot Legacy signed with Setalight Records to release their First Self-Titled Album in June 2014. This was then followed by several Tours across Europe and South America to achieve a total of more than a hundred concerts, giving energy wherever they could and started to build a solid fan base, spreading and growing. Playing with the likes of Blues Pills, Mars Red Sky and Truckfighters, Dot Legacy fought to get a unique distinction and a special style of music.
What kind of music?
Well, the term “Energy Rock” is vague enough for people to still wonder what on earth it means, and even the band itself has no idea how to define what they do, the intention is to let anyone that feels and listens put their own etiquette on Dot Legacy, or not.
The upcoming release of Dot Legacy’s second album will be on Setalight Records and will be titled: To the Others. The idea and the motion behind this album is simple: evolve and explore. Dot Legacy has had the reputation of making intricate compositions and complex forms. For this album the aim was to create a true efficiency all along the record. Composed while on Tour, the venues and tour buses were perfect places to experiment and thus create another Unique variation of what is Dot Legacy.
To support the release of To the Others, two massive European tours are on the way: the first one with Valley of The Sun and the second one with Truckfighters across more than 35 cities.
After the recent events in their hometown Paris and around the world, these high school classmates now have one mission: spread the energy and the will to create, as one Brotherhood.
Dot Legacy’s second album – TO THE OTHERS
The idea and the motion behind “To The Others” was simple: Evolve and explore.
Dot Legacy has had the reputation of making intricate compositions and complex forms. For this album the aim was to create a true efficiency all along the 8 songs of the Album.
Inspired by the space age and the push for Mankind to grow and expand, the Album can be parralleled with the Orion Project of NASA in the 70’s. The goal was to propell a spaceship with a serie of successive nuclear detonations until the Final top speed was achieved. Consider every song as a detonation. Okay, all of this seems too futuristic, To the Others also has deep and loving crossovers of inspiring bands like The Beatles in Dakota, The Beastie Boys with Horizon and the Doors in Story of Fame.
Recorded and Produced by Emmy Award-winner & band member Damien Quintard, To the Others has one major guideline: Complete freedom of composition and creativity.
From the album cover – that was engraved in two collector metal plaques, honouring the Golden Record sent by NASA on the Voyager Probe: with schematics that could describe to unknown civilisations, who we are and what we represent – To the final chord of Pioneer, To The Others will get you an energy transfusion and will hit the ground running.
