KLÔ PELGAG RELEASES NEW VIDEO FOR “À L’OMBRE DES CYPRÈS”
Compelling singer-songwriter Klô Pelgag reveals a compelling new video for her single “À l’ombre des cyprès”, ahead of her first ever London headline show this October.
After releasing her debut album in 2013, Klô Pelgag has taken the francophone music scene by storm, arriving like an enigmatic breath of fresh air and becoming one of the most unique songwriters of her generation.
Her third and most recent LP, ‘Notre-Dame-des-Sept-Douleurs’, tells a story of a journey that, while suffocating and painful at times, is ultimately an empowering and liberating experience. A boundless musical universe, the album is quite possibly Klô Pelgag’s most transparent and personal to date.
Continuing the ‘Notre-Dame-des-Sept-Douleurs’ journey, she has now unveiled a fascinating new video for album track “À l’ombre des cyprès.
The video releases comes as Klô gears up for her first ever show on UK soil this Autumn. Heading to London’s Lexington on 11 October, she will be playing tracks from the “simultaneously subversive and unique project” (Rolling Stone France) live for audiences.
Since the record’s release in 2020, Pelgag has won an award at the JUNOs, been shortlisted for the prestigious Polaris Music Prize and become the first French-speaking artist to have a record reviewed by influential American journalist Anthony Fantano on his YouTube channel The Needle Drop.
In France Télérama gave the record its highest rating (four keys, the equivalent of five stats), while FrancoFan and Longeur d’ondes hailed the originality of the artist and the emotional power of the record, with the latter commending: “Wise violins and crazy piano coexist in a heady, harmonic, Kate Bushian albu, which features very original vocals as always.”
Joined on stage by her band Étienne Dupré (bass), François Zaïdan (keyboard, bass, guitar), Pete Pételle (drums) and Virginie Reid (keyboard), Pelgag’s delicately crafted melodies and poetic lyrics are bound to charm and move her audience, altering reality and leaving onlookers with their jaws on the floor.
