Biography

Stolearm, born in 2003, is the Swiss / French solo project of Lucien Dell’Eglio, who has been gently persecuted by many different influences, visible throughout both musical and visual aspects: artwork, lights, and places, as well as dreams or inner landscapes are the driving forces behind the songs.
You cannot describe Stolearm without quoting several tedious terms such as “New Wave,” “Shoegaze”, “Industrial Rock”, or “Ambient” Nevertheless , Stolearm borrows from Shoegaze textures (reverberated, blurred, dripping synths and guitar clusters), along with aggressive EBM-like basses, elements from Drone, Metal, and even Salsa or Funk, in a kind of dilapidated form of New Wave, a contemplative “Rock Noir.”
The opposition of cold, rigid and digital elements and organic and erratic ones has always been a constant ratio in Stolearm. Hardware samplers and synths struggle with acoustic instruments such as guitar, bass, drums and percussion.
Bold layers of sounds, but also lots of samples are usually considerable parts of the basis to the songs, which use noise as a melodic and harmonic element. As a way to experiment tones, searching for new words, lyrics are often in English, but include some German and French, as well as nonsensical excursions.
Over 5 albums have been released since 2005, including 3 albums for free download on several labels, and tons of other songs (unreleased, remixes, covers, compilations). In fall 2012, a new album, entitled “Glasslight Schwarzfaçade” (Mastering by Brain Leisure and artwork by J.J) is ready for release.
