Léonie Pernet is coming !
Who is this Léonie who joins InFiné’s female ranks - after Clara Moto, Deena Abdelwahed and LaFraicheur ? Who is this young and talented artist who is finishing her debut album ?
After signing 4 tracks with our neighbors Kill The Dj a few years ago, we saw her as an over-playful drummer, as a subtle and delicate composer for film soundtracks, and involved with her "Mix pour tous" and her "Mix Debout."
After a decade working parallel scenes InFiné take the baton for this release carried by our kindred spirits, Kill the Dj, who have always worked to ensure freedom, and a unique sensibility within their lively party vibes.
Crave, the debut album from French musician and songwriter Léonie Pernet, released on InFiné on September 21st. Written and recorded in Paris Crave’s eleven tracks showcase Pernet’s talent for teaming hypnotic melodies and sometimes challenging sonics – the result an impressive and diverse body of work.
Pianist, arranger, singer and drummer (as discovered in Yuksek’s band) Pernet released her first EP on Kill The DJ setting the template for Crave and her flair for cinematographic compositions. Embracing influences ranging from Klaus Nomi, Jeanne Moreau and Caribou, Pernet’s taps into the poetry of Francois de Malherbe providing the lyrics to Rose and discusses the anxiety of being in Arabic on the sublime Auaati.
After a stormy schooling Pernet studied the sacred art of liturgical music at university while organising her first club nights, a combination which inspired an active political conscience and poetry via mixes – Mix pour tous, Mix debout and Mix d’entre deux tours which are daily mixes of electro scratching, precisely aimed rants and mystical wells of light – similar to the record she’s given birth to.
A record of restlessness, born out of solitude and showcasing Pernet’s adventurous spirit Crave is, as the title suggests, of oppressive desire, a clawing at the shadows and shafts of light and as spacious as a place of worship. Amen to that…….
Imperfections aside, Léonie Pernet is the real deal
