Vancouver artist Madisyn Gifford has made her return with a video for her sophomore single, “Voulez Vous.”
The catchy, danceable tune has pop sensibilities with a bit of an R&B groove, as Gifford delivers lines like, “Standing still in a room that spins around/ Smoke in the corner and I can’t hear a sound..” The accompanying picturesque clip sees Gifford singing along from a canoe, interspersed with shots of her floating among some flowers.
“This song was such a fun one for me to write because it was kind of my first attempt at delving into pop writing,” Gifford explains. “The song is all about female empowerment and a girl coming into her own when she realizes that she’s not getting treated the way she deserves in a relationship. It’s basically a picture of a girl at a party ranting about how her values don’t line up with her partner’s anymore, so she makes the decision to leave the party, as well as the relationship, without him. I think it’s such a fun and empowering song and I really hope people can enjoy bopping along to it as much as I do!”
