Album: Meditations I
Release: June 15, 2018
Montreal-based indie/pop songstress Foxtrott released the first in a three-part instalment of EP’s; the first titled ˆMeditations I”. Born Marie-Helene Delorme – the self-taught singer, songwriter and producer is releasing the three-track EP as a follow-up to her acclaimed album A Taller Us.
The album was released under One Little Indian Records and features three mystical melodic creations- filled with warm tones and almost-haunting, echoing vocals. From the sincerity of “Intuition” to the playfulness of the electro pulses in “Wait”, the EP’s lead single. “Where Love Abounds” is romantic and warm; amidst a mix of hip-hop rhythms.
Lyrically she is honest – no hidden meanings or metaphors to decipher. This songwriter is honing her craft and producing intriguing indie/pop with an electronic overlay. Those looking for something just outside the norm of these genres will really enjoy Foxtrott and her cool-girl experimental styles.
Rebecca here- a Niagara native now living and breathing music in Toronto. As a Ryerson journalism graduate and a self-proclaimed music junkie, I’ve been fortunate enough to write for brands like Andpop and Really Records, and now Canadian Beats. My tastes in music are all over the map- Stevie Wonder to Fall Out Boy; Miranda Lambert to One Direction – which is why I spend almost as much money on concerts as I do on rent. But I have no regrets. If you like my ramblings you can also find me on Twitter (RMattina5) & Instagram (rmattina93).
