4 years after High Class Trauma, his first effort sung in English, Franck Deweare, native of Verdun (France) and expatriate since 2000 in Montreal, does it again with a second exploded album, in French in the text.

From the first bars of MES SIMBLABLES, he reconnects with the peddling of influences, the cinematic arrangements and the sonic slippages which earned him great critical success in 2007.

In this new album, his pop-rock continues to wander in polychrome latitudes, where guitars, strings, brass and sequencers merge; where the fuzz accompanies a children's choir.

In a voice that is not really a voice, Franck Deweare evokes his peers. He doesn't see many of them, but he knows them all and he draws a portrait of them with a knife. His words are sometimes bitter but “I’m not that cynical” he quips in Laisse Aller.

Two distinguished guests mark this new album. Ariane Moffatt, official godmother, who offers choruses as tight as the law in Le tumulte and Le métro. Also Erik Truffaz, compatriot and sunny trumpeter, who blows a polymorphous solo and mysticism about Darwin.

With My Peers, we find Franck Deweare always keen to surround himself with the best that Montreal has to offer. Rock, grunge, jazz, pop, electro, symphonic... in the end, a made-in-Montreal album that doesn't sound like Montreal.
