about

Elle P.' s unique, unassuming and diverse singing style has been heard in many collaborations and performances with established artists. This time, she teamed up with Morgan Belenguer, a french artist based in Paris. Describing his working methods in music, he says: ‚'Rather than to reproduce music for a life style, I'd like to stay behind the bar to develop musical cocktails that sound like liquid poems. I got wandering hands which settle on things that are by definition fickle/elusive.'

Without premeditation nor targets 'L‘Ocean des Souffles’ - which can be translated as ‚The Ocean of Breaths’ – emerged from the layout of accidental collisions.

TAZ GERMANY AUGUST/2013
'(...) very strong-willed analogue-electronic independent pop without being nostalgic (... ) shuffling, moody beats with dreamy nonchalance unsettling melody fragments and associative word strings.'

"Once again, I'm more than happy to have friends giving prominence to variety and quality. The day i got 'L'océan des souffles' it was playing on heavy rotation. Weeks went by and I couldn't stop listening. A strong oeuvre like this one will have global impact. If it comes to recommending it abroad, I'm in! This elsewhere release is on top of the list of music that Germany has to offer."

HALF AWAKE

mind-dumpingly hollow
surprisingly I follow
certainly I got
caught up in something that feels so

tremble beneath your sounds
I'd say there is nobody like that
nobody like that

cutting in a well-known scene
the procedure is allowed to be understood
nobody like that

surprise me if you can surprise
surprise me if you can surprise
connect me to a brighter circle
surprise me if you can
connect me to a wider circle
oh

i've been patient too long
i would never whisper there is somebody like you
but surprise me if you can
i would never whisper there is nobody like you
but surprise me if you can
discover

(words by elle p.)
