MINUIT MACHINE is a french synth wave duo from Paris, created by Hélène de Thoury in 2013 during a tour with her former band PHOSPHOR. It has been described by critics as the perfect match between Hélène de Thoury’s synthetic dark sounds and Amandine Stioui’s deep vocals, like a delicate darkwave hand in a crushed velvet coldwave glove.

“Violent Rains”, their second album after the LP “Live & Destroy” and the EP “Blue Moon”, reflects with melodies and words our inner fights, our hopes and delusions, our strengths and weaknesses. It’s a subtle alliance of Hélène’s and Amandine’s musical influences from dark wave to synth pop, from cold wave to electronic rock – each track has its own flavor and tells its own story.
