The musician’s full length solo album, Un singe sur l’épaule is due on November 5th via Lisbon Lux Records.
Following the release of her first ep “Le coin plié” back in April, Julia Daigle worked closely with producer Dominic Vanchesteing (Bernardino Femminielli, Jeff and the holograms, Plaza Musique), creating a warm ambiance inspired by the sounds of Kate Bush and Charlotte Gainsbourg. Her previous single, “Usage domestique,” and her latest track, undoubtedly set the tone for her upcoming record.
“Sur la haute colline” is an haunting, yet alluring track inspired by the excerpt, “L’après-midi couleur de miel et fin d’automne” in René Chopin poem, Dominantes. Daigle’s soft, whisper-like vocals are met with synths, dense reverberations and mandolins that create a mystical aura.
The accompanying visual consists of lo-fi, metaphoric images taken prior to the pandemic, outlining Daigle’s ambiguous relationship with the moon, encapsulating the mystical vibe of the song.
