Discovery: Amélie M. Bastien

Hailing from Canada, Amélie M. Bastien is a Francophone indie folk singer songwriter whose enchanting new track Là où la tempête caught my ear.

By Graeme Smith

A lot of communication transcends language so, even if you’re not a French-speaker, it’s clear what Amélie is expressing in Là où la tempête. The track oozes with a wistful, self-reflection, set against a backdrop of lonesome but lively country folk. Amélie’s vocals are simply breath-taking. It’s hard not to fall in love a little bit while listening.

The track is taken from her album Le temps s’arrête which is available in all the usual places now. You can take a listen to Là où la tempête below.
