After piquing the interest of critics and fans earlier this year with the sensual single Pigeons and the enigmatic follow-up Chaussée, Les Louanges now presents Qu’est-ce que tu m’fais, the third single off his highly anticipated sophomore album. Available for pre-order now, his new effort Crash will be out on January 21st, 2022 via Bonsound.
Qu'est-ce que tu m'fais is Les Louanges’ most danceable track to date yet. The single is a hard-hitting pop song that strikes with eclectic instrumentation and an experimental touch. A tension emanates from the eerie synthesizers and the atypical bass line, making the track dark and compelling. This transports the listener right at the heart of the song; an exploration of the crossroads between love at first sight and the loss of emotional control. The song’s title, repeated during the chorus, refers to precisely this feeling.
Vincent Roberge (aka Les Louanges) has also released a music video to accompany the single. Directed by Alexis Belhumeur, the video is an allegory about passion taking over reason, and features the artist trapped in confined spaces as he descends into madness during an emotional whirlwind of a party.
The young prodigy from Levis has several shows lined up for the next year throughout the spring of 2022, culminating in a headline performance at MTELUS on May 19th. He will hit the road again in the fall for some more shows across Quebec. See the list below for all the dates and visit leslouanges.com to purchase tickets.
Having already accumulated over 20 million streams across all music platforms, Les Louanges received the Juno Award for Francophone Album of the Year in 2020, for La nuit est une panthère, which also ended up on the prestigious Polaris Music Prize Short List the previous year. This debut effort earned Les Louanges a total of nine nominations at the ADISQ Gala, where he took home the awards for Critics' Choice, Alternative Album of the Year and Arrangements of the Year (with his collaborator Felix Petit).
