Ariane Brunet released her third album “Stella”. The mix of pop and jazz is well done. It’s not an easy combination. It’s complimentary to the album “Fusée”, which came out in 2013. Her voice is beautiful and smooth, it goes beyond expectations. She pushes the envelope with her voice. Incredible!
The music on the album is slow and reminds of lounge music. It’s an album one listens to at the end of a long day. There’s a jazz-like beat to most of the songs on this album. The music is amazing. The sound of drums is an interesting twist. Sometimes her voice is the music! That’s impressive. The song where that happen is “Si je reviens”. The lyrics take centre stage over the music. I noticed an electric beat that gives the song an interesting touch to it. This album’s songs have many music genres, yet they compliment each other and flow at a perfect rhythm.
“Y croire” has a bohemian/folk sound to it, which is not something I’ve heard before in Ariane Brunet’s music. It’s an optimistic song that gives a sense of hope.
Lumiere has a nice dance beat that’s similar to the disco of the 70’s mixed with contemporary music. It’s also very romantic and fun. Ta Parade also has jazz beat that also gets people dancing. These are main songs that have a dance beat to them. Her other romantic songs are “Fais-moi tourner encore”, “Nos chapeaux”, and “Avant”. “Temoin” tells a sweet story a couple looking back at their relationship. “Nos Chapeaux” is descriptive and tells a lovely story of a happy couple.
“Tu joues” and “Perdre goût” are songs related to heartbreak. In both songs, she expresses how she feels fed up and is ready to walk away from a bad relationship, which takes courage. “Ciel” is a sad story about a young woman who’s feeling heartbreak. It’s deep and beautifully written. Her sad songs are very touching
My favourite songs in the album are: “Fais-moi tourner encore”, “Y Croire”, and “Nos Chapeaux”, “Lumiere”, “Ta parade”
