Listen to Renée Reed’s Latest Single, Où est la Fée

The Louisiana-based musician unveils a new track off her upcoming self-titled record via Keeled Scales on March 26th.

Renée Reed embraces her Cajun roots while also exploring music outside of her cultural roots. Her discovery of 60s folk and French pop has inspired her to start experimenting with her own music and perform both solo sets and as part of a trio. Reed spent the first half of 2020 recording a few songs which quickly turned into 15, with 12 of them featuring on her upcoming record.

Today she returns with “Où est la fée,” a somber, French ballad slowly building up. In terms of the song’s context she mentions it being “A dream sequence, a narrative in which I am walking in the woods and find a letter on the ground: ‘Where is the fairy? It’s in your head.’ The letter has possibly been written by an ancestor/guardian angel figure or perhaps another version of myself, sent to point out what I’ve not been recognizing in myself, that I’ve been dealing with life, or rather not dealing with life, by escaping into fantasies. As dream logic does, the narrative focus of the letter and the song bends and blends seamlessly from the personal outward to other people in my life.

Reed describes her sound as “dream-fi folk” and will tackle various different themes throughout her album. She mentions, “This album is a collection of songs about toxic relationships, seeing ghosts, ancestral baggage and blessings, and daydreaming about love. It is about certain feelings and experiences I’ve had over my life coming to fruition in the past three years. It was all made on a four track recorder at home, in a place and in a way I feel most natural, and I believe that quality comes through in the sound.”
