Population II share the second single off their forthcoming album Serpent Échelle, with the EP’s focus track entitled “Comme tu le souhaites (Ding Dong).” Less than half a year after releasing their album, Électrons libres du québec, Population II announced their new EP, due out on April 19th via Bonsound (Corridor).

Formed in Saint-Joseph-du-Lac in the Lower Laurentians – a picturesque region of Quebec dubbed “Le pays de la pomme” by those in the know –, Population II looks back on their origins while continuing to move forward with Serpent Échelle, a new EP packed with symbolism and eccentric riffs. Serpent Échelle stands out from the trio’s previous releases thanks to wilder, more adventurous sounds and a heavier atmosphere. More than ever, Population II demonstrates their skills for musical composition and a newfound commitment to songwriting, as evidenced by the songs “Hélène”, “R.B.” and “Comme tu le souhaites (Ding Dong).” The three-piece band continues to nurture their taste for improvisation on the instrumental track “Le Serpent.”

“The drums is fire
The bass is fire
The keys is fire.
Unfortunately La Palma was in fire too during the recording of the song and inspired the lyrics.
We hope everyone is well.”
