After sharing MENACE MINIMALE last November, Annie-Claude Deschênes unveils PHONES, a second single from her upcoming debut solo album, LES MANIÈRES DE TABLE, which is set to be released in spring 2024 on Bonsound (Canada) and Italians Do It Better (rest of the world). The multidisciplinary artist also announces a series of concerts, notably at the PHI Centre (Montreal) and Le Pantoum (Quebec City).
A standard call for a restaurant reservation turns into an anxiety attack on PHONES, a reflection on the absurdity of good manners that sometimes lead us to rigidity and over-politeness. The robotic rhythms, made from interference noises and ringtones, punctuate the conversation while the repetitive bass line accentuates the unsettling nature of this hymn to alienation.
Known for her hypnotic presence and eccentric stage sets, Annie-Claude Deschênes delivers a live experience that takes the form of an improbable, experimental blend of minimal pop and cuisine, during which the audience is invited to interact with the artist using all of their senses.
