MOWNO - 26.05.19
Injustement trop confidentiel, We Only Said n’en demeure pas moins incontournable dans le paysage rock français. Eblouissant de maitrise sur ses deux premiers albums, l’éponyme We Only Said (2009) et Boring Pools (2015), le groupe a comme toujours pris le temps de mesurer chaque détail avant de déposer My Oversoul dans la clarté.
Les rennais ont aussi joué aux chaises musicales pour accomplir ce nouveau chapitre. Stéphane Fromentin – qui signe la sublime pochette du disque – laisse la basse à Damien Tillaut, alors que Juliette Divry (Mermonte) et Astrid Radigue viennent à leur tour gonfler les rangs aux côtés des fidèles Pierre Marolleau (Yes Basketball), Loïg Nguyen et Mathias Prime. En appui sur les textes de Nathalie Burel, déjà auteure sur Boring Pools, le collectif installe nouvelles résonances et déséquilibres autour d’un Marzano solidement ancré dans son expression originelle.
L’émotion est palpable d’entrée sur Before The End, comme plus tard avec les superbes Go Past, Smile, Lies et Enter The Dark Side qui dissèquent délicatement les sentiments à renfort de piano, de chœurs éthérés et de violoncelle. Des contrastes plus forts apparaissent également avec le plus popisant Dead Men, l’intriguant The Way You Show Your Love développé en deux actes distincts, ou le plus en distance Messy Artist, reprise de Ral Parta Vogelbacher. Le dernier coup de scalpel surgit de Shoot Me où Marolleau, par ailleurs impressionnant tout au long du disque, assoit une rythmique imparable au milieu d’une aspiration vocale étourdissante.
Un pied dans les nineties et l’autre au chaud dans une mélancolie curieusement confortable, We Only Said illumine son troisième long format de sa sincérité. Poignant de bout en bout, brillamment inspiré et magnifiquement écrit, My Oversoul convoque tout ce qu’un mélomane attend d’un disque authentique : profondeur et élévation. Pari réussi.

Track Name: BEFORE THE END
Girl, come and find me
My oversoul
Whatever your name
You’re my first love
I shot the first and
I burned my hands
I burned my hands
You walk away
Show me the way to
Let me come back
Show me the way
Here or elsewhere
Find us a place, don’t
You know my name
You know my name
Let me come back
Track Name: DEAD MEN
You must know that dead men are heavier than broken hearts
So when you kill the guys and their ghosts complain
Please don’t forget the dead men’s weight

Frantic cries haunt you
Dead guys are hanging around you
Kill in cold blood my dear
Oh smile and go, temples of my hopes

I know the answer
You must know that we are
So weak together
You must know that we are
Two souls to save
You must know that we are
So weak together
You must know that we are

You must know that dead men are heavier than broken hearts
So when you kill the guys and their ghosts complain
Please don’t forget the dead men’s weight

I know the answer
You must know that we are
So weak together
You must know that we are
Two souls to save
You must know that we are
So weak together
You must know that we are
Two souls to save
You must know that we are
So weak together
You must know that we are
Track Name: GO PAST
I know we had a falling out
But I need to go
To go past now for this night
May I dance with you
Oh I can breathe in your shadow

Oh let me come
Close to you

I am troubled in the early dark night
By your eyes
And your shyness

I need my doubts
To fly away
I know I know
Track Name: MESSY ARTIST
I wanted to be a messy artist
Letting things fall apart and ride slipshod
Hazy under the weight of static
So obscured by intentional obfuscation

I wanted to be a messy artist
Until I met one, aged and giggling,
Smoking a filthy pipe when he couldn’t find
Rolling papers hidden underneath his front seat

I wanted to be a messy artist
Until I waded through his pages
Erasing his fingerprints
Unearthing razor blades and toothpicks

I was laughing at the coffee stains
Track Name: LIES
The truth is not mine
We were a nice trip
You are a nice trap

I’m in love with a girl
who is not mine
My lies are shocking me

The moon was getting sad
The moon was getting sad
The moon was getting sad
The moon was getting sad

I know the taste of dust
I know you inside
I know you inside out

Believe me I’m sorry
But all that I can
But all that I can see

Is so deepless
Anyway I don’t care
You promised me the moon

We are ghosts in
In the earth
We are ghosts in
We are ghosts in the earth
Track Name: ENTER THE DARK SIDE
I will disappear 
Enter the dark side
Give in to despair
For a wadded world
I will disappear

Drowning in my fear
Wanna forget my
Disappointed hopes
And scornful girls
Without looking back

Without looking back
Never come again
In this foolish life
Doomed to failure
Wanna run away

Wanna run away
Enter the dark side
Give in to despair
For a wadded world
I will disappear
I will disappear
Track Name: THE WAY YOU SHOW YOUR LOVE
We’re here and nowhere else
Don’t pretend you believe
In a clear unseen world
All over the white hole
Where winter never comes
(But I) Always can feel
The closeness of your skin
The way you show your love
Where winter never comes
(But I) Always can feel
The closeness of your skin
The way you show your love

The way you show your love
The way you show your love
The way you show your love
The way you show your love

I feel everything is success
That had never been made for me
How to accept
How to live it
I don’t deserve what’s going on
Going on
No doubt

I feel everything is success
That had never been made for me
How to accept
How to live it
I don’t deserve what’s going on
No doubt
I’m gonna fuck it
Track Name: SHOOT ME
I don’t wanna fight today
(I) want to surrender
I’m out
I won’t lie to you this time

Those were the days
Time has come to chase
To chase after girls
Roam the oceans
Please oh

Don’t trust me girl
If I try, honey, you can shoot me
Never let me fall in love again

Don’t trust me girl
If I try, honey, you can shoot me
Never let me fall in love again

Run run run away from you
And I
Run run run away from you
And I
Run run run away from you
And I
Run run run away from you
And I
Run run run away from you
And I
Run run run away from you
And I
