Safia Nolin unveils the new single 1000 and announces the pre-order for her EP SEUM

Today, singer-songwriter Safia Nolin releases 1000, the second single off SEUM, her upcoming EP to be released on October 29th via Bonsound). Just like PLS which came out in August, 1000 comes in two versions: a ‘sunset’ melancholic indie-rock version recorded in the studio with a three-piece band, and a ‘sunrise’ version recorded at Parc Jean-Drapeau on a grey June day. Minimalist at its core, the latter solely features the musician and her acoustic guitar, along with the ambient sound of the surrounding nature.

The ‘sunrise’ version for 1000 is a result of a collaborative work with the band - consisting of Jean-Philippe Levac (drums), Agathe Dupéré (bass) and Marc-André Labelle (guitar) - that accompanied Safia Nolin in the studio. After the singer-songwriter presented them with a stripped-down, guitar-vocals version of the track, the trio of musicians worked together on the arrangements.

The touching lyrics of the song allude to Safia's difficult past year. The music video that accompanies the single reflects this idea and incorporates the practice of music as a form of therapy. Created by Safia Nolin herself, it features footage of people crying and is dedicated to every person who has been there for her lately.

In the same spirit as 1000 and PLS, SEUM's other songs will also be available in two versions echoing the duality that inhabits the artist. Co-produced by Safia Nolin and Félix Petit (Les Louanges, Laurence-Anne, Hubert Lenoir), the upcoming EP differs from her signature acoustic formula that launched her career. Surrounded by a band for the first time in a recording studio, she delivers four new compositions that mix grunge, indie and pop influences, while simultaneously pushing her limits as a singer-songwriter using various instruments and a plurality of sounds.
