Pauline Croze announces the release of her album and the dates of her tour

[Google translation]

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.

What drives her, Pauline, is trying to provoke physical sensations with a feeling of lightness, even if it is to highlight the violence of the world .

The travel interview with Pauline Croze, singer

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. Between two songs , the young woman tells us here about her travels from Belgrade to West Africa, her love for Daft Punk and Mac de Marco and her little travel habits. Selected pieces from a three-part interview. 

Pauline Croze, before departure

You who have to sleep often at the hotel as part of your job, can you describe your home to me?
At home it’s quite stripped down, I like order, clarity…. The walls are light, it’s a very bright house, it’s a place where I must feel good. I also like working there. My room is very uncluttered, there are plants, flowers, a lot of books and comics.

A world tour, does that tempt you or would you have tempted?
Yes that would have tempted me, but I never had the guts to do it. I can panic very quickly when I am lost in a place. Sometimes even when I am in a place and I am lost, I can no longer read the names of the streets… That is to say!

Are you the type to pack your suitcase in advance or hard before departure?
No, suitcase in advance, even when it’s for vacation, you quickly realize that you take a thousand things that are unnecessary … I hate being loaded. I like the bare minimum.

What should you always carry with you in your cabin baggage?
A notebook, pens, an essential oil that soothes me, like bergamot or vetiver, a book of course …

Where are you going to sleep next or should you have slept (due to COVID)?
At the moment I am often at home, so no improvised bed! Continue reading “The travel interview with Pauline Croze, singer”
