Could this be the Year of the Claire? After Claire Denamur, here's another jewel in the crown of fragile French pop: La Fiancée. Don't know her last name, but she's called Claire and her EP is one hell of a way to start the new season. It's simply beautiful. Claire sings vulnerable, but not without strength. Her songs have angel choirs, thick Gainsbourgian basslines and subtle acoustic guitars. There's a sixties vibe, but it feels very now. Florent Marchet is on board as musical director and composer. Hope her album will drop this year. A very good year.
