Dive deeper into IIII with our Q&A with BRIQUEVILLE.

OHMs Peak: IIII picks up beautifully from your previous album Quelle. The minimalist doom landscape feels more elaborate and texture filled with brooding angles and dark nuances. What has fueled the progression to keep your signature sound evolving?

BRIQUEVILLE: We looked back to our previous records and tried to incorporate all of the different elements presented on them but with more finesse. That resulted automatically in a wider sound thanks to the more prominent role of synths and vocals. The progression on this album came naturally to us. 

We are never really looking to sound different it’s just the way we write our music as we are all listening to totally different styles/genres.

OHMs Peak: This album’s artwork is very unique and alluring. Can you provide any insights to the creation of the cover art as this image is very unique particularly for the doom genre?

BRIQUEVILLE: Thanks for the compliment! We have the tendency to do a lot of the artwork, clips, visuals ourselves. So this album cover came to one of us that is involved in photography. He had this idea of a four fingered hand covered in clay. (Our 4th album)

It looks burned and out of shape…. as so many global things currently are…. He made this image with his own hand as a model.

OHMs Peak: Can you provide a glimpse into the writing process of IIII? What influences guide your passion to create such ominous minimal doom?

BRIQUEVILLE: Conversations with people, nature, philosophy, relationships, music, art etc. can all be a source of inspiration. I don't think there are themes that can't inspire us. Talking about inspiration music-wise, we post playlists with artists that inspire us on our Spotify account. The next one ‘VOL. III’ will be out real soon.

OHMs Peak: Briqueville is stranded on an island with only a solar powered record player. The entire band must agree to only 1 album to have during your stay… what album is it?

BRIQUEVILLE: We talked about this question and came to realise that it is quite impossible for us to choose 1 record that we all agree about. What became clear is that it would be a soundtrack. They behold so many different emotions that it would be suitable for the hardships and the good times on that island, hehe. For example Interstellar by Hans Zimmer would be one, Paris Texas by Ry Cooder another one..
