Zone Rouge


Artist: Right Hand Left Hand
Label: Bubblewrap Collective
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 15 November 2019

Right Hand Left Hand release their third LP, Zone Rogue, via Bubblewrap Collective. An instrumental album, It tells the story of humanity's contempt for the earth beneath us, the air above us and the people around us...

Zone Rouge is a pretty solid instrumental rock album... it borders on being a rock musical in a similar vein to Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds ('White Sands' in particular). Mankind's fractured planet lays the groundwork for the 11 tracks (1 hr, 34 sec) with each referring to a location on Earth where something bad has happened: An act of corruption against the planet, an act of evil against fellow humans and occasionally both.

On the first play though there were plenty of tracks that were instantly engaging including 'Prora', 'Floreana', 'Clipperton' and 'Terra Nullius'. And on subsequent plays other tracks came into their own. Overall, it's an energetic and infectious album with a timeless quality.
