A brand new single that follows the EP Tu pourras te resposer, released in 2019. It’s a song that reaches a bit through all eras, like a uninhibited tribute to all these classics listened to a thousand times on the road, in a style that remains in my eyes, the perfect vehicle for this kind of text and content emotional, as again evidenced by this large musical family linking artists like Plants and Animals, Big Thief, Kurt Vile, The Weather Station or Foxwarren.
Émilie Proulx is a researcher. Of links, sounds and meanings. Remarkable and discreet figure of the Quebec alt-folk scene since 2007, the singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist sees music as a window, an honest mirror, as a partner with whom to dialogue to better understand what is beyond her. Music to meet the other and gain access to oneself. Or get out of it. Basically, maybe both at the same time. Throughout a career punctuated by four musical outings – In a city, asleep (2007), Slowness around (2009), Roller coaster, mini-tsunamis (2011) and Tu pourras te reposer (2019) and was awarded nominations for the GAMIQ and for the Félix-Leclerc prize for song, we were able to see her on stage all over Quebec, especially at the Francofolies de Montréal, Festival d’été de Québec and Coup de cœur francophone. La nuit les échos, her new maxi, will see the light of day in the summer.
