Olivier Libaux Releases Uncovered Queens of The Stone Age EP

The Lost EP, from French musician and producer Olivier Libaux (Nouvelle Vague), is the second volume of songs released under Libaux’s project, Uncovered Queens Of The Stone Age. The EP shifts through the hidden patterns of sound and mood from original Queens Of The Stone Age songs and flips the perspective, creating new vantage points and environments that come into their own. Featuring vocalist Charlotte Savay on the EP, the songs bend and shift like contorted rays of light hitting a broken mirror from all angles, casting a matrix of varying atmospheres. The Lost EP available on Libaux’s label, Music For Music Lovers, features Queens of the Stone Age’s hit single, “Sick Sick Sick.”

“Sick Sick Sick”, the Queens of the Stone Age single recreated by French musician and producer Olivier Libaux and vocalist Charlotte Savay, creates an irresistible maze of sound inspired by the dreamy, yet eerie imagery of a David Lynch movie. Libaux crafts his songs from his Uncovered Queens of The Stone Age project to shift from a man’s interpretation to a woman’s interpretation as Charlotte Savay’s fluttering voice dances about with brimming female energy. While the original version is speed-intensive and full of passion and madness, Libaux became interested in shifting the mood, envisioning a mysterious nightclub where a woman (Charlotte Savary) wanders around in a hypnotic haze as her voice projects forward, guiding her towards the dreamy, dancefloor beat.

The Lost EP is Libaux’s most recent collection of songs with his project, Uncovered Queens of The Stone Age. This project was founded by Libaux as a tribute to the band, and Libaux aims to breathe new life and give new meaning to their songs. The second volume follows the project’s first Uncovered Queens Of The Stone Age album in 2013 which featured Inara George (The Bird and the Bee)The Lost EP’s reinvented production creates varying atmospheres for Savay’s sultry performance to allure on each of the tracks. From the stripped-down, darkly mystical rendition of “Turnin’ On The Screw” to capturing the “disturbing strangeness” of “Someone’s In The Wolf” and transforming it into a shadowy folk motif, Libaux and Savay invite listeners to explore a clandestine chamber of sound
