Pauline Croze returns with “After the Gray Hours”, her sixth album which will be released on October 8, 2021 and will run throughout the 21-22 season, with a Parisian date at Les Etoiles on November 17, 2021!
“After the Gray Hours” winds between fashions and sounds like the right balance between the charm of his first steps and period pop, where the song mingles with urban syncopations. An album composed between confinements, between lightness and self-analysis, which plays as much with forms as with double meanings. In a daring, intuitive style, she tackles the tremors of the contemporary world with distance and irony. A tour will follow the release of the album, with a Parisian date already announced at Etoiles on November 17, 2021. First extract, we discover the clip of “Solution”.
Whether she writes alone or not, Pauline Croze is part of each of the texts, her life is there which turns constantly. Surrounded by young, inspired and talented directors: Fils Cara, Nk.F (Damso, Orelsan), Romain Guerret (Aline, Alex Rossi), Charlie Trimbur (Eddy de Pretto) and Pierrick Devin (Phoenix, Lomepal). The only constants are the grace and subtlety that continue to dress her voice.
At the age of 24, she was revealed at the Transmusicales de Rennes, she then won the Sacem prize on the springboard of the Chorus festival and then performed in the first part of Miossec, M, Bernard Lavilliers, Lhasa or Cali. Beautiful people. Her first album released in is gold disc and allows her to be nominated for the Victoires de la Musique. “Do nothing”, her most recent album (2018) sounds like an oxymoron: Pauline Croze gives of her person, with voice and guitar, to tell the pains of the heart, the murmured dramas and the sun, there- low, which still shudders.
