Approved: Sônge

Sônge

Two years on from her debut EP, French R&B artist Sônge is set to release her first album, ‘Flavourite Câlâ’, in March.

Classically trained in jazz and with a broad range of influences – last single ‘Magic Hairdo’ was initially imagined as a metal track – she takes an unconventional approach to pop. The results are a short, uncanny step away from the mainstream.

“I put together my favourite colours and fragrances in this debut album”, she says of the creation of the record. “Some songs were born in Brittany, others in Paris, in Corsica, one in Cuba. And like paintings, they reflect my inner landscapes. My brush has whispered Caribbean tales, interstellar journeys and questioned the mysteries of African women’s beauty to finally climb to the eternal garden of ephemeral roses”.

New single, ‘Crépuscule Des Dieux’, is the third to be released from the album, and feels like the moment her word is fully exposed. Ahead of the album release on 22 Mar, watch the video for the new track here:
