Press Quotes

The Ballad of The Runaway Girl joue de ces singularités : mélangeant inuktitut, anglais et français ; imposant une musique désertique aux rythmiques ancestrales ; des syllabes s’étirant et s’épanchant sur des pans autobiographiques.*

Rolling Stone France

On her fourth album, The Ballad of the Runaway Girl, she [Elisapie] synthesizes stories from her eventful life with hypnotic arrangements that channel '70s rock, indigenous folk music and the low, moody rumble of barnstormers like Tom Waits and Morphine.

NPR

Harnessing the romance of French, the personal nostalgia of English and the resilience of Inuktitut, she created such a profound statement with this record […] Not only does her third solo album and first since 2012 have openly impactful lyrical chops, exploring heartfelt themes of internal strength and spiritual growth, its sounds and arrangements are lush and diverse works of understated beauty.

Exclaim!

Instrumentation filée comme de la dentelle, une voix aérienne et séduisante [...] Elisapie retourne aux sonorités chaleureuses des instruments acoustiques et à la rudesse des guitares électriques, et on l’écoute encore et encore.

ICI Musique

Elisapie’s first album in six years is an extraordinary set that seamlessly merges aboriginal themes and sounds with an alt-rock sensibility, powered by some of the city’s best indie players […]

Brendan Kelly, The Gazette

[…] Elisapie nous saute au cou. Ou plutôt à l’oreille, avec sa voix si particulière, légèrement nasillarde, qui nous emporte par sa beauté sauvage et douce, gracieuse et sensuelle, pleine d’une étrange poésie.
