Laurence-Anne unveils the music video for Pájaros, her first song in Spanish

Today, Laurence-Anne presents a mesmerizing music video for Pájaros, a bewitching song in Spanish featured on Musivision, her sophomore record released in April 2021.

The musician and singer has a special bond with Mexico, where she lived for a year to learn the official language of the country, 10 years ago already. The idea to write a song in Spanish came to her while checking in with her friends in Mexico at the beginning of the pandemic. Pájaros was born shortly after, and eventually producer Jesse Mac Cormack added his touch to it, resulting in a mystical and fascinating song.

The lyrics refer to the situation we were in; a bit nightmarish, being trapped at home, explains Laurence-Anne. "Encarcelada a dentro de mi casa, cada dia se obscurecen las ventanas" (Imprisoned in my house, every day the windows get darker and darker). But also about feeling stuck within ourselves. Living with a secret, or something we are not ready to share with the world. "Existiria otra manera de escapar a lo extraño que tenemos a dentro" (Is there another way to escape the strangeness within us?), concludes the Montreal artist.

Set in a small bar where all the characters seem to have their fair share of secrets, the music video for Pájaros features the musician, who hypnotizes the viewer with her performance and transports them to a dark and somewhat unusual world. Directed by Maïlis and Juste du feu, this production sees Laurence-Anne momentarily abandon the bluish tones to which she has accustomed us to. Warmer tones tending towards a hazy yellow and a lustful red occupy the screen, the muffled atmosphere that emanates from it an echo of the mystery that lurks. I wanted to play with two parallel dimensions so that we wouldn't know which one Laurence-Anne was really in, explains the director of the universe she created for the occasion. The first reality, although strange and futuristic in its own way, is closer to our references today than the second, which is a much darker portrait of the future.

The next few months will be quite busy for Laurence-Anne, who will embark on a tour that will take her all over the United States, as she opens for the South Korean group Se So Neon. She will also make a stop in Austin, Texas to take part in SXSW, and will perform a few shows in France, in Paris and Marseille, for the festival Avec Le Temps. Upon her return to Montreal, she will celebrate the 1st anniversary of Musivision with a unique concert that will see the universe of her album come to life on stage at the Phi Centre on April 23rd.
