Antipole started as a project after Karl met Anne-Christel in 2013. Karl had been writing songs and been in bands before but was inspired to start writing and record more music – this time inspired by Anne-Christel, the early 80s wave and postpunk music.
Antipole make elegant coldwave/postpunk music. Guitar-based tracks driven by a linear rythm, inspired by the beauty of nature as well as the everlasting presence of mixed feelings while living our lives. The music is like sketches, gust, a puff of wind. An instant expression, a journey into the intersection of the lightest light and the darkest dark. A melodic-hypnotic sphere, only reached by the ones who feel the multifaceted shades of life. So fragile, but yet so strong.
Antipole has previously released two digital only 8-song EPs: “Panoply. Songs for AC” (2014) and “Getting Frequent Now” (2017). The former fully instrumental while the latter is featuring Paris Alexander.
The debut 14-song album “Northern Flux” out on Unknown Pleasures Records (UPR76) is featuring Paris Alexander and Eirene – both from Brighton, UK.
