Soaked in Gold - EP
Sampha and Chet Faker are good points of reference, but Geoffroy’s inclination towards electro-acoustic experimentation puts him in a category all his own. Aaron Zorgel, COMPLEX
Geoffroy offre une électro-pop bardée de synthétiseurs et de beatbox, pour en faire une jolie pièce accrocheuse. Julie Ledoux, Voir
Geoffroy is nothing short of pure gold in its musical form. Nick Younes, IX Daily
His most recent works see Geoffroy’s familiar folk background give way to a more downtempo, electronica/trip-hop inspired sound, following the path of artists such as Chet Faker, SOHN or Sylvan Esso. His first album Coastline will be out on March 10th, 2017 via Bonsound.https://www.geoffroymusic.com
Geoffroy kicked off the new year in full force after travelling through Thailand over the holidays. He unveiled a video for the song Sleeping on My Own, off his debut album Coastline which was released on March 10th via Bonsound. This album follows-up his EP Soaked in Gold, released in November 2015.
Co-produced by Gabriel Gagnon, Max Gendron and Geoffroy, the album Coastline reflects the artist’s fear of commitment and his desire for escape and freedom. I’ve travelled a lot in my life, Geoffroy explains, and I think it comes out naturally through my music. He collaborated with Max Gendron (Prince Club) and Gabriel Gagnon (Milk & Bone) for the composition and production of the album. Quebec City's Men I Trust and Fjord also participated to the making of two tracks off the album.
These eleven songs form an album that is both original and cohesive, and explores Geoffroy’s many states of mind. Inspired by travel and nature, as well as a strong desire for change, the artist is in full quest-mode for freedom and independence.
Coastline, the follow-up to his Soaked in Gold EP released in 2015, gives way to a more downtempo, electronica/trip-hop inspired sound, following the path of artists such as Chet Faker, SOHN or Sylvan Esso. Carefully crafted and produced, the record features a solid mix of percussions, guitars, analog keyboards and synths, and woodwind instruments.
Montreal-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Geoffroy has been gaining traction and interest since the release of his first EP, Soaked in Gold, in November 2015. After backpacking around the world during his early twenties, the 29 y.o. settled in Spain playing music every single day. Back in Montreal, Canada, he wrote and produced his first EP with good friend and producer Max Gendron.
His most recent works see Geoffroy’s familiar folk background give way to a more downtempo, electronica/trip-hop inspired sound, following the path of artists such as Chet Faker, SOHN or Sylvan Esso. Carefully crafted and produced, the music truly reflects the singer’s vibe.
But the four tracks off Soaked in Gold were just the tip of the iceberg, he mentions.
Geoffroy’s full album Coastline, co-produced by Gabriel Gagnon (Milk & Bone), Max Gendron (Prince Club) and Geoffroy, was released on March 10th, 2017.
