Camille- Monday song

Camille is a french singer who in early 2002 signed a contract with virgin records who released her first album le sac des filles.
When Myrthe introduced me to her I heard most of her really happy songs. Her a capella is great to listen to and most of her music is not without a sense of humour.

Le fil which was produced in collaboration with English producer MaJiKer. This album incorporated an avant-garde concept - a string, or thread ("le fil"), which was a drone that persisted throughout the entire course of the album. All of the songs in this album are based on the exploration of the voice, with only a double bass or double bass and keyboard as accompanying instruments. You only realise this when you listen to the whole album at a stretch so i suggest you do not download individual songs (shame on those who do!) Her music is not about lyrics however its about harmony and sound, it helps if you don't know french!

This song however is from her album Music Hole, her latest album released April 2008. I'm not sure what to think of it really, there is no real flow and some of the songs are just embarrassing but this one song Winters child stuck out like a square peg. Once again her music has nothing to do with her lyrics! The ambiance she creates with this song is fantastic. I love music that flows into you little by little letting you savour it so it fits. This one however has its own surprises. It gives me chills every time i listen to it!
