Set to release his debut album A.M.I.E.S.A.M.O.U.R on May 14th, LUMIÈRE (the project of multi-instrumentalist Étienne Côté) now unveils LE.DÉFI.DE.L’AMOUR, a song that awakens an appetite for love and sparks the dangerous hope of joining forces. Driven by a weeping guitar and a laid-back groove, this new single follows the release of LA.BELLE.JOURNÉE 1971, FREUD.EST.MORT and AMITIÉ.DÉCHUE.
LE.DÉFI.DE.L’AMOUR, a kind of lyrical comedy, is complemented by a grainy, retro music video directed by Alexandre Pelletier. The video features LUMIÈRE, who desperately tries to entice his beloved. As the stunning melody and elegant, though sometimes goofy, dance moves progress, the video ends ultimately in disappointment. With this new song, LUMIÈRE reminds us that love is, above all, a challenge.
