"The Stage Is Burning": Pale Antique's Debut Single, "Facteur Divin"

It's turning out to be an incredibly productive year so far for Las Vegas guitarist Josh Cohen who has already successfully achieved the $3600 needed to fund the recording of his band, Candy Warpop's first full-length album thanks to an ambitious Kickstarter campaign launched last month. This week, however, Josh has unveiled another project which he calls, "Pale Antique" and has teamed up with the talented Meagan Wyzenbeek, a.k.a. "Tallemaja", to release a dark and delightfully melancholy single entitled, "Facteur Divin".

The project is described as, "an ongoing collaboration" which also features the talents of Las Vegas artists, Kaitlyn Rae Delaria, William Boscoe Davenport, Thomas More Chastka, Christina Marie Lakis and Cayce Andrew. It clearly demonstrates a more subtle and elegant side of Cohen in contrast to the heavy and chaotic delivery of his other project, Candy Warpop. He trades distorted guitar for cello and angst-ridden vocals for poetry recited in French. All in all, it stands as a bold and refreshing creation to emerge from Vegas; a town over-saturated with commercial DJs and top 40 lounge acts.

The single includes an instrumental version of the track as well as a remix from yours truly and what's best is that it is available now as a free download.
