Daigle’s debut album puts her in the lineage of Kate Bush-esque art pop, just with a lush, Francophone twist,” writes Caleb Campbell for Under the Radar. “She opens with decadent washes of guitar melody on ‘Étoile de l’aube’ before exploring a hypnotic tribute to Chopin on the early highlight, ‘Sur la haute colline,’ as well as the winding hypnotic melodies of ‘Écho.’ Elsewhere, lead single ‘Usage domestique’ sees Daigle leading the listener into a surprisingly danceable pop gem while ‘Cinq ou neuf’ explores gently pulsing electronic elements. Finally, the record ends on a heady, slow-burning finish with the shifting soundscapes of ‘Chapelle ardente.'”
Taken from the record, “Feels So Real” came about when Paquette felt alone and stuck inside his head during the beginning of the pandemic. During a phone call with a friend who was not doing well at the time, he suddenly realised that sometimes we create a lonely world inside our brains that makes everything start to feel so real. However, it’s not everybody’s reality – someone is there for you, and there’s a way to find help. When you’ve got nothing left, you’ve got nothing to hide. It’s a song to inspire people to reach out when they are in need of help.
