Margaux Avril manages to span the Atlantic.
With dual French-American citizenship, the performer fits two different aspects of her personality into one aural vision.
Releasing a French language album in 2013, her subtle, cinematic pop won a devoted cult audience far beyond the Francophone world.
Set to release a new record next year, Margaux Avril has decided to trail this with gorgeous, spectral track 'Soon'.
Airing first on Clash, it's a slow-moving, graceful work. She explains:
This song is very personal because it tells about my way to get through life; its disappointments, surprises, relationships, gut-feelings… Fits well with my wavery personality! It’s quite ambiguous I think, also because you can listen to it at any time of your day or life… When you’re happy, melancholic, walking around, waking up; in the beginning of your evening or late at night… It has something sulphurous, still sharp and mysterious. Writing and singing the song felt like doing an auto-portrait - but trying not to reveal everything at once…
Tune in now.
