    After the release of their very dreamlike first album, "My reality is your fiction" Comett is back with a rougher and more complex album.

    Comett is an alternative pop duo founded in 2009, composed of Alexandre (Guitar / Keyboards / Vocals) and Julien (drums / programming). Comet has the particularity of being based in both Paris and Tours.

    JD Beauvalet (www.lesinrocks.com) wrote of their first album; "it is from the cosmos that this pop tumbles with the stars, in all its excesses and ambitions”. “BACK TO REALITY”, the new album, is a superb collection of 8 songs that includes the pop and delicate side of the duo, but that also contains more organic and muscle-rock songs, inspired by their main influences: Radiohead and The Notwist.
    After a first album "My reality is your fiction" which took a while to be released (4 years), this latest installment was recorded in a studio in just 15 days.
    Comett recorded this last album at tram 28 studio in Saint- Clais (72) in order to benefit from the experience of Fabien Tessier (The Apartments , 49 Swimming pool , Pagan poetry ), and to produce a more organic and energetic album without putting aside the synthetic colors that the duet cherishes.

    It is precisely through a dark and frenetic synthetic bass line that this album starts. “Love2.0 " contains a chiseled chorus flanked by sharp guitars ending with a surprising finale. This groovy and down-tempo song is split into two parts - a change of rhythm of which the duet is particularly fond.
    .

    Throughout the album, the duo likes to confuse the listeners! Comett integrates rough guitar scores and steep synthesizers with flashy acoustic guitars or felted pianos. The duo does not forget though that Comett is primarily a pop band offering melodies and heady tunes like "You only live Once" or the very upbeat "Dancing at the Paradise ". Having been recorded​​ “live”, "Inside My Head" and "Animal" are rock songs based on the guitar / drum combination, which emphasize the darker side of this second instalment.
    Unlike the first album which was telling a story, this second album deals more with personal themes, and subtly introduces French lyrics in some songs ( " Love 2.0 " " You only live once" ). This is treated frankly and without cliché in the haunting song "My Reality", which draws a fine dichotomy between a purely electronic production and the warmth of the instruments.
    The album ends with the title track "Back to reality ", a simple song without any subterfuge that really marks the musical maturity of Comett.
    While still preserving their signature style, Comett moves towards a more complex and organic music, harmoniously blending the refined and the upbeat side of its pop music.

    Includes digital pre-order of Back to reality. You get 4 tracks now (streaming via the free Bandcamp app and also available as a high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more), plus the complete album the moment it's released.

Track Name: Love 2.0
I think i’ll never fall in love
I think i’ll never understand
Is there somewhere a kind of notice
Une mise à jour que je n’ai pas faite

Are you looking for something that’s right inside you

I’m feeling sad, i ain’t happy (You could)
I lost my faith i lost my way
Oh damn it’s over again

I don’t fit with love, it’s an obsession, but it’s gone again
I don’t fit with love, a lack of passion, what i 've missed again ?
I can’t tell

J’ai surement besoin d’un reboot (i do)
D’un reset, de déconnecter, (i do)
J’aime pourtant nager dans mes doutes (i do)
Et me laisser les chuchoter

I’m feeling sad, i ain’t happy (You could)
I lost my faith i lost my way
Oh dam it’s over again

I don’t fit with love, it’s an obsession, but it’s gone again
I don’t fit with love, a lack of passion, what i 've missed again ?
I can’t tell


Why, in my head, even if i try, i can’t say, i love you
Track Name: Dancing at the Paradise
Dance please! i wanna sing, i wanna sing in your night club;
Hey guy, i wanna sing, i wanna sing on the radio;
Come on, i wanna sing, I wanna sing in your basement;
Do you want to dance with me?

I have to say I’m not a fashion man, I’m unknown;
I’m not the type of guy you gonna meet in a club;
I’ld rather stay at home, recording my own songs;
And I want to believe, It’ll be the only thing you’ll recall;

Dance please! i wanna sing, i wanna sing in your night club;
Hey guy, i wanna sing, i wanna sing on the radio;
Come on, i wanna sing, I wanna sing in your basement;
Do you want to dance with me?

Give me just one chance;
If you press play It’ll be ok;
Maybe, it’s not perfect;
But you’ll play the song again and again;

Dance please! i wanna sing, i wanna sing in your night club;
Hey guy, i wanna sing, i wanna sing on the radio;
Come on, i wanna sing, I wanna sing in your basement;
Do you want to dance with me?

Yes, anytime you go on stage, anytime you complain, there’s no one around, I know you.
Yes, anytime you say my name, anytime you are fake, you just need to be famed, I know, I know…

Dance please! i wanna sing, i wanna sing in your night club;
Hey guy, i wanna sing, i wanna sing on the radio;
Come on, i wanna sing, I wanna sing in your basement;
Do you want to dance with me?
Track Name: Ma réalité
Oui rien n’est vrai
Oui rien n’est vrai
Tout est déformé
Le temps y presque arrêté
Je revois des choses, des choses, des choses

Je suis caché, je suis caché
Depuis tant d’années
Construit un monde insensé
Je n’ai rien vu d’autres, rien d’autres, rien d’autres,

Hanté, oui hanté par tant de bruits,
Je me suis persuadé,
Que tout était vie
Que c’était ma réalité
Je ne sais plus trop, plus trop, plus trop.

Tout était faux, tout était faux,
Du papier mâché
Un tableau presque effacé
Je dois mettre en pause, en pause, pause

Je ne sais plus, je ne sais plus
Je veux exister
Mais tout commence à se flouter
Je ne vois plus les choses, les choses, les choses

Hanté, oui hanté par tant de bruits,
Je me suis persuadé,
Que tout était vie
Que c’était ma réalité
Je ne sais plus trop, plus trop, plus trop.

Je fuis comme les autres
Track Name: You only live once
I don’t want to waste my time, even for one hour;
We don’t last for ever, it’s seems to be;
I can’t wait the finish line to get any pleasure;
Surpris par mes remords et puis l’envie ;

I don’t want to feel one day the light, and never
Understand I’ve got only one life, it’s over

I am not a lazy man; do you know me better?
But I like to spend my time dreaming.
Je ne suis pas parfait, je respire à moitié ;
Et le temps s’essouffle, le temps s’essouffle je reste figé.

I don’t want to feel one day the light, and never
Understand I’ve got only one life, it’s over

I won’t be patient, i want everything now;

I don’t want to feel one day the light, and never
Understand I’ve got only one life, Game over
