Soulage is French singer-songwriter Alexandre Varlet's 6th album. Here, total darkness is pierced by the light of ten tracks whose insight, derision, biting humour and sensuality form a poignant representation of our time.
Written and recorded alone in his studio near St Malo in France, Varlet continues on the path he started with his fourth album, Soleil Noir : stripped back instrumentation and sparse lyrics with forays into electronics that bring comfort and relief.
Soulage highlights Alexandre's art of navigating rough seas. He confronts the raging storm to find the way to calmer waters.
There can be no light without darkness.
The LP comes with a postcard and a large poster. The limited edition LP includes a large poster, two postcards and a CD of demos and outtakes.
