Laurence-Anne unveils her video for the song Géométrie off of Accident, her new EP released on August 14th via Bonsound. The video is an excerpt of a three-part short film (one part per song) that accompanies her EP. The whimsical triptych is available to watch on the Cinéma Moderne website as of today.
The EP’s release comes with a short film that explores a fanciful rainy tropical fable of challenging proportions and perspectives. In this tale of love at first sight directed by Cassandre Émanuel, Laurence-Anne discovers a surrealistic jungle and meets voracious birds, participates in a funeral rite, becomes one with nature, and connects with an oversized bumblebee.
Accident is available now on all music services.
The EP's three tracks merge and intertwine like a dream. Each song shares a sense of losing control, and each one carries the listener to a different dimension. The musical narrative comes to life with Géométrie, an indie-pop opener punctuated with art-rock keys and bird calls. The tempo urgently progresses and sets the scene for Accident, a daring track with angular post-punk accents. The EP ends with Vendetta, a song with a tropical vibe that highlights Laurence-Anne's sensual voice.
Born in the small town of Kamouraska, Laurence-Anne is a Montreal-based singer-songwriter who made a name for herself at the 2017 finals of Les Francouvertes, alongside Lydia Képinski and Les Louanges. In 2019, she unveiled Première apparition, a full-length alternative pop album with an indie-rock, experimental edge. Recorded in the midst of a mushroom trip, this first release transports us into a dreamlike universe full of richly dangerous landscapes. With its sleek production, the album - which ended up on the prestigious Polaris Prize Long List - charmed the critics and introduced the artist to a wider audience across Quebec.
On stage, Laurence-Anne exudes a hypnotic charm by presenting a striking, meticulous aesthetic and bringing her eclectic vibes to her live sound. She has beguiled Quebec with over fifty shows, including performances at renowned events like the FME, Le Festif!, Festival d'été de Québec and Pop Montreal. Last fall, the young artist represented her native province at MaMA in France. Aside from her solo project, she has collaborated with many venerable artists, including Hubert Lenoir, Choses Sauvages, Jesuslesfilles and Mat Vezio.
