about

Principles Of Geometry is the duo of J & G, the cosmic twins, based somewhere in the North of France. They met in a major studio in Paris where they worked as sound-engineers and started to share their love of IDM, obscure soundtracks, ambient and analog synthesis. Their common passion quickly led them into a dark room where they recorded their first demos.

In 2005, they sent a CD of those demos to Tigersushi. For once, the cover photo of that CD was appealing enough that Joakim listened to it and immediately signed them. This demo CD became their eponymous debut album and the first chapter of what they call an "omniscient trilogy". POG's second album, "Lazare", an ode to Resurrection, was released in 2008 and featured Sebastien Tellier and Vast Aire from Cannibal Ox. Press reviews were outstanding and with the addition of their first world live tour, the impressive "Stereoscopic show" - a 3D live experience conceived with AntiVJ, they earned a well-deserved special spot on the French electronic music map. Finally the apocalyptic "Burn The Land and Boil The Oceans" was the conclusion to that trilogy in 2012, the return to the ground, a non-dramatic expression of extinction, the idea that everything goes back to where it comes from to be born again. A darker and fiercer album, featuring Tonetta and Subtitle.

An end to a trilogy that lead to a new beginning.

While they were still promoting "Burn The Land And Boil The Oceans", they had a revelation. The Meanstream appeared before their eyes. An inner glow, a vivid childhood fantasy they had to accomplish. They decided to stay locked in the studio, turned down all the boring interview requests and stopped touring to work on on the creation of those 10 tracks that will become the Meanstream, their most humble and honest expression of emotions, their own genre.

"Behind the simplest things lies the deepest feelings" is the motto in Meanstream. Since their debut album, POG have been slowly carving into their own sound to extract the pure essence of their music, each album being simpler and sharper at the same time. Meanstream is a child's word, a bullet to your soul.

The fact that they've been doing more and more remixes since 2008 (Rone, Mr Oizo, Chateau Marmont, Poni Hoax, Egyptology…) also helped defining their new sound, a more effective approach to beats production.

After Sebastien Tellier, Vast Aire, Tonetta… Principles Of Geometry were looking for the perfect guest vocalist on Meanstream. And with the help of Joakim they found their perfect symmetrical gemini, the cult Alessi Brothers (influential band from the 70s, authors of Seabird, Oh Lori etc), Bobbi and Billy, who first sang on Video Girl. We were so blown away that we asked them to do the 2 other vocal tracks.

The connection between POG and the Alessi Brothers was true and cosmic, a real artistic exchange that we're so proud of. There's also the first song performed by POG themselves, the deep and hypnotic "Runner".

Now get ready to see Principles Of Geometry live in a town close to you. May we add that it is a "real" live show, not a pre-recorded set which sadly became a norm among electronic acts these days.

It's time to surrender to the Meanstream.

It's not about me,
It's about us,
We can move on ,
And there's no rush
You know I'd never let you down.

it's not about greed,
it's about need,
It's about you

You know i never wanted everything
My love for money was a fling
You know i never been away from you before
You are my love,
Now can't i get you back ?

Watching T.V,
and nothing is on,
This is gonna be a long night,

All alone , waiting for the phone ,
to ring, ring-a-ding-ding
All Alone , waiting for the phone ,
to ring, ring-a-ding-ding

Cold and rainy and dark outside,
Kind of night to stay inside
There's a girl at the Video Store
She wants me and i want her more

Give it all the way for free
Give it all to me
Videogirl ( you're in my mind)
Videogirl ( you're in my eyes)
Videogirl ( you are my ride)
Videogirl you are my ride

I use to wonder what was going on,
And i was so naive all along,
But i turn on the light ,
In the middle of the night

I was used to do'in what was right ,
But it's clear at the end of the night
Don't have to wonder, wonder anymore

There's all kinds of reasons,
To enjoy all the seasons
Never to regret all the things you never tried
There's no wrong direction
It's all about affection , there's no right
Just follow your heart

there's no answer
there's no right,
there's no right
there's no answer
there's no right,
there's no wrong

I was used to do'in what was right ,
But it's clear at the end of the night
Don't have to wonder, wonder anymore

There's all kinds of reasons,
To enjoy all the seasons
Never to regret all the things you never tried
There's no wrong direction
It's all about affection , there's no right
Oh, Yeah , Just follow your heart
Track Name: Runner
No, You know,
We'll never find an answer.
You know, we better loose control.
Give off our need to wanna hold,
Behold the silence

Now, You know,
We have to dig an answer.
You know we'll never loose control.
And Keep our need to wanna tape,
Escape the silence
