Failed Fashionistas, Instagram voyeurs, jilted Romeos reeking of insecurity, the willingly self deluded and the comically uanware, these creatures and constructs are the inspirations for the Baxter Dury’s new album, The Night Chancers. It’s a ten-song gaze into the black hours and the characters and behaviors that swirl around within them. The album was produced by Dury and long time collaborator Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire, John Grant, Artic Monkeys). While bringing vivid color and sharp lines to this chronicle of the midnight hours, Dury has created his richest and most expansive musical palette yet.In 2018, Baxter Dury co-signed the album B.E.D. with a master of the French Touch movement (Etienne de Crecy) and a then-unknown riot grrrl Delilah Holliday. A quick electro thrill, this minimalist synthpop trio’s project was described by the British dandy as “a mutant child from the 80s that never fully developed correctly”. He returns to his roots with the impeccable Night Chancers, a gritty and sensual groove record. His late father Ian was all about “sex and drugs and rock’n’roll”, but Baxter’s opus is situated light years away from these dated thoughts, preferring to err on the side of quirky and nonchalant melancholy, like a British Gainsbourg of the third millennium. Some may be quick to reduce Dury to nothing but a sarcastic and cynical aesthete; admittedly he gets back in the saddle for this album like a heartbroken lover to confront the demons that surround him in an almost cinematographic environment. Violins, saxophones, hip-hop beats and other huge basses complement his thrilling declamations about social media (Carla’s Got A Boyfriend), fashionistas (Sleep People) but also compassion (Say Nothing)… The Night Chancers rounds off the trilogy (that began with Happy Soup and continued with Prince of Tears) made by the master of contemporary introspection, transforming the pavements of big cities into intimate dancefloors. – Marc Zisman
