Claire Pommet (aka Pomme) is a 23-year-old singer-songwriter who lives between Paris and Montreal. Her first album À peu près released in October 2017, a logical continuation to En Cavale (2016), received critical acclaim. Following this release, Pomme embarked on a lengthy tour culminating in a sold out Trianon (Paris) show on January 16, 2019. Her new album Les Failles came out on November 1st, 2019.
Les Failles talks about discovery. The concerts, the solitude. Little poems written to breathe life back into you. The memory loss. The life we try to write before it fades away. The idea of doing what scares you. It's an easy thing to say. And sometimes we speak without uttering a word. In a chapel. Improvising on a pile of corpses. Glorious generations crammed under our feet. For us. To allow us to exist. But we don’t get life handed on a platter, we take it. We get up early, we have the courage to bring something to the table.
You know, that feeling of greatness. France is small, small spaces, small cities with narrow streets and small everything but suddenly, everything was huge and wide.
This album, she wrote it to herself, within herself. She brings it to us, that's it. It's not tidy, it's not perfect. It's sweet as maple taffy. It's as beautiful as the eye of the passing bird. It’s Pomme bringing us her infinite love.
