LOKI STARFISH is a multidisciplinary dark-pop industrial electronic multimedia project led by singer/songwriter and actor, Jérémie Lapeyre. “Loki Starfish, the brainchild of Jérémie Lapeyre has been laying down an electro styled, world beat infused, off-kiltered pop grind… a tripping world beat number reminiscent of the Talking Heads, Remain In Light era…” – In Your Speakers Incorporating Cold wave/post-punk tones, LOKI STARFISH draws inspiration from Paris’ underground scene. Ever-changing, the live performance works as a full band and solo act. Lapeyre is constantly pushing boundaries and limits with LOKI STARFISH.
“Each song is a continuous search to reinvent the process of creation while exploring tensions caused by discomfort and imbalance.” – Lapeyre With a catalogue encompassing 1 LP, 4 EP’s, and 18 videos, LOKI STARFISH invites creative direction and contributions from collaborators like musicians, arrangers, directors, stylists, choreographers, actors, photographers, and artists including Elephanz and Erik Halley (stylist for Christian Lacroix, David Bowie and Madonna) to change and adapt Lapeyre’s vocals and aesthetic. Lapeyre wants to challenge the sense of “I” which is often assimilated with contemporary artists.
After his 2011 introspective, bittersweet, electro-pop debut album, Love-like Banners, featuring 15 tracks and videos, Lapeyre recorded and released 4 EP’s, Silence + Evidence, A Season for Weepers, Broken Moth,and Hey There. Lapeyre’s latest album, Stones from Fire Mountain, was released on 24/03/17 via Believe Digital. Recorded in Paris with producer, Florent Livet (Housse de Racket, The Rapture, Phoenix, and Bloc Party),Stones from Fire Mountain is a powerful statement exploring otherness, identity, and spirituality, transcending the space between diffused light and icy darkness.
