LUMIÈRE presents FREUD.EST.MORT, the second single off his debut album to be released later this year. It is accompanied by a video directed by David Bourbonnais and inspired by the Dadaist short film Le Ballet Mécanique, in which the lyrics of the song are projected on a plexiglass screen through a cloud of smoke. This new single follows LA.BELLE.JOURNÉE 1971, a 70s rock infused song released last fall, which introduced the solo project of multi-instrumentalist Étienne Côté. A new recruit to the label, we're pleased to announce that LUMIÈRE has now joined our booking roster as well.
FREUD.EST.MORT is undoubtedly the most experimental track off LUMIÈRE’s ambitious upcoming album, thanks to its 3/4 time signature and recto tono melody, making this one closer musically to the year 2001 than 1971. Written from the perspective of a character undergoing the process of self-reflection, the song explores the feeling of being chained to our projected image. After habitually molding himself to fit the expectations of others, LUMIÈRE has difficulty recognising his own reflection.
