Pa­trick Wat­son, Safia Nolin / Mélan­colie

Bangkok Post - - MUSIC -

Mélan­colie is a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Cana­dian singer-song­writer Pa­trick Wat­son and Québé­cois singer Safia Nolin. The gor­geous French track ar­rives af­ter Melody Noir, and once again finds Wat­son in his el­e­ment as he blends his sig­na­ture pared-down com­po­si­tion with sub­tle elec­tronic flour­ishes. “Je me lève le matin/ Un cafe dans ma main/ Et c’est ben gris de­hors,” the pair open in uni­son. “Je lis les nou­velles/ Ça m’én­erve/ Tou­jours la fin du monde.” Fed up by all the bleak news, they de­cide to go back to bed where there’s no need for a fake smile — where they feel fine hid­den un­der the sound of the rain, un­der­neath the melan­choly (“en dessous de la mélan­colie”).
