MONTREAL’S LE COULEUR SHARE NEW SINGLE SILENZIO
NEW ALBUM CONCORDE SET FOR RELEASE
SEPTEMBER 11 VIA LISBON LUX RECORDS
WATCH VIDEO FOR CONCORDE
Toronto, ON – May 5, 2020 – Today, Montreal trio, Le Couleur, release a new single, Silenzio. The song is the third from their forthcoming album, Concorde, out September 11 via Lisbon Lux Records. Listen to Silenzio here, and stay tuned for a music video to follow in the coming weeks.
"The track Silenzio is about the death that lurks and holds us in a duel, already lost,” Le Couleur says on the song’s inspiration. “It deals with the rivalry between life and death. The latter being put into image by a betrayal, and ending with the kiss of death (il bacio della morte). She wins again and we witness her executions."
Last year, Le Couleur released Silhouette, the first single from Concorde. On February 7, the group shared the album’s title track, Concorde, with a stunning visual directed by Ariel Poupart in their hometown of Montreal. Poupart connected Concorde to its namesake aircraft as a symbol, reflecting this in the imagery. Watch the video here.
"I wanted to pay tribute to this mythical plane Concorde, by bringing it as a love break-up...These are the last moments of the plane, which remembers its memories, its image, its exploits,” says Laurence Giroux-Do. “Like the last discussion when you breakup, you remember our good times, trying everything to save the relationship but it ends and the name of this lover remains in our history, in our memory.”
The Montreal trio, created by Laurence Giroux-Do (vocals), Patrick Gosselin (bass), and Steeven Chouinard (drums), and bolstered live by Philippe Beaudin (percussions) and Francis Do Monte (guitar, keyboards), delivers rich and irresistibly danceable performances.
Le Couleur polished their sound until it shined as bright as the late Studio 54's spotlights with Eps, Voyage Love (2013) and Dolce Désir (2015), and then P.O.P. (2016), their critically acclaimed debut album.
Thanks to precious advice from Giorgio Moroder, with whom the band had the opportunity of sharing the stage, Le Couleur recorded their new album adopting a completely different approach.
Concorde takes its name from the legendary Franco-British airplane from 1965, nicknamed the "beautiful white bird" for its sleek and modern design. This avant-garde project that ended in tragedy has always held a certain fascination for Laurence Giroux-do; a deadly "crash" that inspired in her a sense of macabre sensuality.
In the album's music we find vintage influences, recalling the faded charm of 70s erotica, warm tones also rooted in psychedelia, disco, yéyé, and French chanson.
