Paupiere‘s Julia Daigle has returned with a video for her new single, “Sur la haute colline,” premiering now on Indie88.
“Sur la haute colline” is a musical tribute to René Chopin. It’s an extract from his 1933 piece the afternoon color of honey and late autumn. Julia Taigle takes his words and creates a haunting, hypnotic single that’s sure to entrance you. The accompanying video is equally hazy, with film-like shots of Daigle in front of projections.

“It is an assemblage of metaphorical images captured before the pandemic. The ambiguous relationship between Julia and the moon is portrayed in the form of a mysterious ritual, halfway between play and pursuit, between release and tension. The editing is cyclical, nervous and chaotic. The lo-fi aesthetic approach is assumed and is situated like a grainy veil between the artist and the viewer, echoing the opacity of the symbolism present in the video.”
Watch the video for “Sur la haute colline” below.
Julia Daigle is releasing her debut solo album, Un single sur l’épaule, on November 5th via Lisbon Lux Records.
Back in June, she announced the album alongside a video for “Usage Domestique.” The track truly takes you on a journey. It opens with dreamy, chiming instrumentals before exploding into a gritty anthem. The accompanying Dominic Vanchesteing-directed video sees Julia Daigle performing with her backing band in black-and-white. She takes to a backlit studio to deliver a captivating rendition of the tune.
