She has had the guitar (and voice) that itches for almost 30 years. Since then, she scratches them a little (a lot) to offer us very pretty songs, five albums and tours here and elsewhere. To celebrate the year 2021, Pauline Croze is back with a new single called “Solution”. “Sketched” by designer Joann Sfar, the singer offers songs mixed with syncopations specific to contemporary urban pop.
