The Montreal trio Le Couleur, created by Laurence Giroux-Do (vocals), Patrick Gosselin
(bass), and Steeven Chouinard (drums), delivers rich and irresistibly danceable
Le Couleur polished their sound until it shined as bright as the late Studio 54's spotlights
with EPs Voyage Love (2013) and Dolce Désir (2015), and then P.O.P. (2016), their critically
acclaimed debut album. Thanks to precious advice from Giorgio Moroder, with whom the
band had the opportunity of sharing the stage, Le Couleur recorded their new album
adopting a completely different approach.
Concorde takes its name from the legendary Franco-British airplane from 1965, nicknamed
the "beautiful white bird" for its sleek and modern design. This avant-garde project that
ended in tragedy has always held a certain fascination for Laurence Giroux-Do; a deadly
"crash" that inspired in her a sense of macabre sensuality.
In the album's music we find vintage influences, recalling the faded charm of 70s erotica,
warm tones also rooted in psychedelia, disco, yéyé, and French chanson.
