Les Louanges returns with new single Pigeons

Two and a half years after the release of his landmark album La nuit est une panthère, Les Louanges returns with Pigeons, a new single and a lush, “autofiction” video showcasing Vincent Roberge’s musical and spiritual evolution since his 2016 debut. The track also follows the release of his critically acclaimed Expansion Pack EP in September 2019. This Sunday, Les Louanges will perform his new single for the first time during Star Académie on TVA.

Pigeons may be his catchiest track yet. Despite its seductive melody and latin-inspired rhythms that conjure images of sunny days ahead, Pigeons is not a love song. Through clear and lively vocals, the multi-instrumentalist explores the idea of returning home and coming down from the exhilaration of being on tour. On this new single, Roberge confidently reflects on the struggles of maintaining relationships, the smooth flow of the lyrics mimic a conversation with himself. Whereas the song Attends-moi pas (off the EP Expansion Pack) deals with the idea of departure, Pigeons is the logical follow-up to that song.

Watch and share the video on YouTube.
Pigeons is available now on all music services.

Directed by Soleil Denault, the video for Pigeons features Les Louanges stuck in time in a mid-range hotel just like the ones in which he stays while on tour. The discrepancy between his frenetic state of mind and the banality of the environment in which he’s trapped is reflected on screen, and the young prodigy entertains himself as best as he can by skateboarding in the hallways of the hotel, swimming while fully clothed, and smoking a joint. “Vincent approached me with the idea of doing a lonesome video in a hotel (referencing Sofia Coppola, Spike Jonze, etc) and we clicked right away!” explains the director. “I suggested a story about a slightly narcissistic young man who somehow loses his mind because of the isolation following his success. By ghosting his real life and relationships, he ends up seeing his own ghost lurking around. He is perpetually facing himself, no matter what he does.”
