Formed in 1980, The (Hypothetical) Prophets were duo Bernard Szajner and Karel Beer. An ephemeral French coldwave band, they released a series of 12” singles and one full length record before their quick demise.

Despite a short discography, the band’s craft was unique. Singing in both their native tongue as well as English and alternating between male and female vocals, the dozen or so songs recorded under this name are haunting minimal wave at its finest, a mixture of harsh electronic experimentation and catchy pulses of synth.
