Laurence-Anne Essentials

Laurence-Anne Essentials

Laurence-Anne’s mix of pastel-hued dream pop, vivid synth-rock, and bright cosmic funk offers a sort of synesthetic escapism. A self-taught musician, the Quebec singer-songwriter (born Laurence-Anne Charest Gagné) first made waves as a finalist at 2017’s Francouvertes, an annual Montreal music competition, with her angelic vocals set to moody indie rock. A beguiling presence on stage, she’s proven even more adventurous on record. Since her 2019 debut album, Première apparition, she’s explored an ever-widening palette that blends the influence of artists like the Cocteau Twins with groovy future pop and hazy existentialism. One doesn't have to speak French to be hypnotized by Laurence-Anne’s ethereal reveries.
