Christine and the Queens aka Héloïse Letissier heads to the river for an artistic rebirth.
Héloïse Letissier, Christine and the Queens: "In Hamlet, Ophelia is, of course, the unlucky lover, the rejected one; but her madness and the suicide that ensues is also symptomatic of a whole era: the young girl, unwanted, unloved, simply cannot live,” Christine explains in a statement. “Looking at Millais’ painting, and thinking of ‘Comme si’ as this erotic reverie of subverting rejection with self-empowerment, I started to dream of giving that myth a welcomed, witty twist. Let’s undo that tragic ending; let’s cheat death, if you will.”
It is by the grace of a divine voice that Yorina imposes her sensitivity on her first title, « Wild as a Horse ».
Orchestrated by Dan Levy (The Do), a wide and minimal production - a piano, a mellotron, some percussions - that showcases the unique voice and songwritting of a surprising maturity of this young composer. Her first incandescent and graphic music video is directed by Nathalie Canguilhem and produced by La Pac.
