Carla Chanelle - Reflets
Through pop-inspired arrangements, Carla Chanelle, in the intimacy of her own home studio, creates an introspective universe in which fragility and melancholia coexist. Inspired by her own emotions and experiences, her melodies evoke delicacy and vulnerability.
Carla Chanelle is a recent recipient of a bursary from the Canada Council for the Arts. After many years of classical piano studies, she began writing songs before turning herself towards synthesizers to fully exploit her musical potential. Her first single 'Reflets', recorded and mixed in between two apartments, expresses secret feelings.
'Reflets' is inspired by secret and unconfessed desires. The song portrays a person’s vulnerability and fragility towards unpredictable feelings. Analogue synthesizers’ warm tones blend with modern textures and treatments. This project originated from the collaboration with a tight-knit group of friends in a small home studio.
Reflets was co-produced and mixed by Jacob Lafrance with the input of Julien Comptour and William Thibeau. It was mastered by Philip Gosselin (Le Lab Mastering). The song was distributed and promoted by Distribution Select and Bonbonbon.
