The French singer’s powerful vibes will resonate in Montreal for the first time.
One of the most stunning returns of the current French-speaking pop scene? It's Yseult's, who is 24 years old. A golden voice and a mind of steel. A talent we first saw in 2015 and found again a few months ago with Rien à Prouver. A vibrant manifestation of empowerment that settles its accounts and shines through its resilience.
At a very young age, Yseult started singing: "It was easier than doing my homework". Her father listened to African music, French songs and American pop. This young girl listens and reproduces what she hears. She is already very concerned about injustice, believing that women should be treated with the same respect as men. Of course, she cannot be stopped from expressing herself...
Her music is nourished by variety, indie rock, psychedelic, pop and trap. Amazing, refined, efficient. A "Y-Trap" that reflects what she listens to every day, from Lizzo to Feu! Chatterton, from Cardi B to Damso and Tame Impala.
In October comes the EP Noir, whose addictive beats serve as texts that are always raw and stripped of their formwork. Love, the past, independence: that's what Yseult wants to sing, and that's what we'll hear on her upcoming debut album. "Everything in my life is black" she sings in Noir. However, Yseult has a bright future ahead of her, with a contagious smile and an afro haircut that is as free as air. Whoever loves her, follows her.
