Toulouse based artist Laure Briard, who wowed us with her second full length record Sur La Piste de Dance back in July has wasted no time in releasing follow up material. Her new EP Sorcellerie is set for a December release and last week the opening track sung entirely in English, the psychedelic pop of ‘Dreams’, scored an exquisitely shot Pierre Figarol & Madji directed video of understated brutality where Briard reverses the stereotypical role of the innocent female hitchhiker and turns her character into an inventive mass murderer who dreams of doing away with an assortment of unsuspecting men in a myriad of grisly ways. It will be cathartic to some after last week’s dire political result in the United States and the conservative war on women looming large on the horizon. Sorcellerie is out through Midnight Special on December 9.
