Chloé Soldevila (aka Anemone) is this beautiful and talented musician/artist from one of our fave towns, Montreal Canada. And on April 27, her debut EP ‘Baby Only You & I’ drops. From the two singles already available (title track, and ‘Bout De Toi’) the mix of genres and calibrations of rhythms is infectious and well worth the gold.
Anemone comes from a Spanish and Canadian heritage and is a Montreal native, who has stated that she’s been fascinated with the visual arts and music.
She, with her project, is embracing womanhood. She’s inspired by 70’s psychedelia plus latin percussions form the 90’s – mixed in with synth pop, and many other sub genres.
Pop culture and the meaning behind those words and letters, is what this painting of an album ‘Baby Only You & I’, really is. It encompasses what’s expected of mixing of genres, but this time, these elements are segmented clearly and succinctly, into each song.
This makes the songs & instrumentals much more ‘fun-ner’.
The Italo Disco influence in ‘Party Theme’ is unmistakable. ‘Bout De Toi’ is as flavorful and French-Pop as can be with hints of Yelle, in the mist. ‘Baby Only You & I’ brings down the mix of 70’s psychedelic music of old, with a new twist. And ‘Laying in the Sun’ tickles your 90’s indie with the delectable lyrics, we deserve.
