LUMIÈRE, the solo project of multi-instrumentalist Étienne Côté, presents AMITIÉ.DÉCHUE, the third single off his debut album A.M.I.E.S.A.M.O.U.R, due out on May 14th.
This first effort takes shape as a free-flowing epic set in 1971, following the concept album tradition. In this sprawling theatrical adventure packed with choirs, strings, and organs, mixed with intrigue, we follow three characters - LUMIÈRE (Étienne Côté), BRIQUETTE (Daphné Brissette) and CRISTALE (Naomie de Lorimier) - who seek affirmation and support through nourishing friendships and love. From this universal and regenerative quest emerges fifteen sumptuous songs that echo the glorious 70’s style of the chanson québecoise and rock music from the same era. A.M.I.E.S.A.M.O.U.R is available for pre-order now.
With its flourishing, imaginative lyrics written like a tale, AMITIÉ.DÉCHUE is a seemingly joyous play, yet it tells a story of friendship filled with resentment and uneasiness. Musically, it is a nod to the country sounds of Paul & Linda McCartney.
