"Together with the innovative sounds from her violin, plus analog synths that pulse and hum along with old-school drum machines, Deville conjures a dark and intimate atmosphere that is steeped in 1980s nostalgia while creating art that is both forward-thinking and avant-garde in sound and lyrics."

"French Coldwave act Transmission—the synth-laden solo project of musician Sandrine Deville, has unveiled the video for “Cloud9”, a track featured on her forthcoming debut album Cosmos that will be released by the end of 2020 on via Wave Records.
As a freelance concept art designer known as Bluefactoriz, Deville has tinkered with and developed her own all-white violin, built utilizing 3D printing technology, and lovingly named Transmission. The violin’s unique shape is inspired by the plotting of pulsar CP1919 famously featured on the cover Joy Division’s 1979 debut album Unknown Pleasures.
This very special violin makes a noteworthy appearance in the book Joy Division, paroles de fans from Pedro Peñas Robles published by “Camion Blanc”.

"French one-girl synth-wave/darkwave project Transmission will release on 12th of October via Wave Records the debut album entitled Cosmos. Transmission is Sandrine Deville solo project. As a freelance concept art designer known as Bluefactoriz, she has tinkered her own violin, named Transmission, built using 3D printing. Its shape is inspired by Unknown Pleasures's album sleeve from the Manchester band Joy Division: the white mysterious curves depicted on the sleeve represents pulsars, some weird dying stars. So this cold/post-punk/synthpop/darkwave/electro universe has inspired Sandrine when she has composed her nine titles album named Cosmos.
Analogic synths pulsed by old-school drum machines are influenced by the 80s. A dark and intimate atmosphere, the creation of electronic sounds and her outstanding violin shape her lyrics. The first song, "Cosmos", has its own video-clip made of film footages from the movie "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari", directed by Robert Wiene in 1920. "Cosmos", the opening title, defines the global atmosphere of the album: a minimalist darkness and a sultry low key vocal, here, saying "orgasmic, orgasmic, orgasmic...", until the end of the track.
Beside the album title track, there were now unveiled two other tracks, "De Stijl", which brings a great balance of surprise: the pulsation of an electronic body music rythm, and words in German, introduces you to one of the greatest artistic movement close to Bauhaus, and "Cloud 9", a smooth, cool, sexy and dark vibes. Watch the video for "Cosmos" over HERE and in the player below you can watch recently released video for "De Stijl", and listen to all three so far released tracks in the Bandcamp player below. Link"
