Safia Nolin shares a music video for the song Dagues, starring the drag queen Verona Verushka

In a wonderful role reversal, the music video for Dagues casts Safia Nolin as another spectator amongst the crowd. Safia watches as Montreal drag queen Verona Verushka performs her song. We follow the young man backstage and to the privacy of his home, revealing the solitude that often goes with living in the limelight. Once again, Safia worked with trusted director Jean-François Sauvé to follow previously released videos Les Chemins, Miroir and Encore, all off Safia’s sophomore album Dans le noir, released on October 5th via Bonsound.

Watch and share the video for Dagues via YouTube.
The album Dans le noir is now out in stores and on all music services.

Back from France, where she opened for singer-songwriter Pomme in January, Safia will be playing throughout Quebec this winter. Starting in February, the artist gets back on the road to tour her latest album which ICI Musique calls tough, filled with painful tenderness and most of all, so beautiful it’ll bring you to tears.

2018 ended on a sweet note for Safia. She released the song Mélancolie which she recorded with Patrick Watson and landed on several Best-of-2018 lists for her album Dans le noir. Recorded and mixed in eight days at WILD Studio in St-Zénon, her second offering of original recordings was produced by Safia and her two long-time, much-respected collaborators Joseph Marchand and Philippe Brault.

The end result is the album Dans le noir, comprised of 13 songs, all written in Safia’s self-described super depressive style (the style that won her the Prix Félix-Leclerc de la Chanson, the SOCAN Breakthrough Award, and the Félix for Breakthrough Artist of the Year in 2016). Like with Limoilou, this new collection of songs deals with the artist’s failed relationships. Each song reads like a polaroid, revealing and bringing pivotal moments into the light.
