LUMIÈRE joins Bonsound and releases debut single LA.BELLE.JOURNÉE 1971

We are so excited to announce the signing of LUMIÈRE, the solo project of multi-instrumentalist Étienne Côté, to our label roster. Today LUMIÈRE releases LA.BELLE.JOURNÉE 1971, a catchy, feel-good track with rock ‘n’ roll guitar riffs and voluptuous harmonies, as the first single off his upcoming album, due out in 2021.

The song is accompanied by a music video that appears to be simple, but is full of symbols and hidden meanings. Accompanied by Daphnée Brissette (aka Briquette) and Naomie de Lorimier (aka Cristale), Étienne Côté, who is LUMIÈRE, is electrifying on screen. Throughout the track, he reveals different facets of his alter ego; the musician, the painter, the hanged man.

Inspired by 70s rock, LA.BELLE.JOURNÉE 1971 introduces us to LUMIÈRE and gives us a glimpse into his ambitious upcoming musical epic, set in 1971. This song is the gateway to my solo project. It's the first song I wrote, the first song we recorded in the studio and the first song we mixed as well, explains the artist. *More rock than before, I started strumming the guitar rather than finger-picking. I wanted simple lyrics. I wanted to sing louder, to play more steady. It was the first time I felt so free to go into that area with
