Halo Maud was revealed to us in 2015 by ‘La Souterraine’, a collective determined to uncover and promote French talent. Her high-brow pop, has already garnered the attention of French newspapers Libération, Le Monde and Les Inrocks magazine.
Halo Maud is constantly searching, for a sound, her voice, and the meaning of just about everything. That’s probably why she refuses to choose between French and English, between song structures and epic trances, between reverb-drenched vocals and intimately close breathing. She assembles and cuts up undulating guitars, percussion, and the voices of children, the elements over which she lets her voice scale vertiginous heights.
Her lyrics are also often about searching for something, and a certain idea of solitude; whether it’s a matter of self-confidence, rites of passage, or loves that have come and gone, it’s always somewhere between waiting and running away.
