MARGAUX RELEASES “ CAVE IN” SINGLE +ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF MORE BRILLIANT IS THE HAND THAT THROWS THE COIN EP OUT NOVEMBER 15TH VIA MASSIF RECORDS
Brooklyn newcomer Margaux Bouchegnies, who writes and records simply as Margaux has released her stunning new single “Cave In” from her debut EP More Brilliant Is The Hand that Throws the Coin coming out 15th November on Massif Records.
“Cave In” is the follow up to “Palm” released earlier this month to wonderful feedback and comparison to artists such as Snail Mail, Courtney Barnett, Stella Donnelly and Taken by Trees.
Ear to the Ground Music said “this is no ordinary tune, as it definitely offers us some interesting nuances post-chorus and even such a unique change in tone on the latter end of the song. It’s beautifully performed, written, and chock full of subtle genius.” Austin Town Hall “Margaux is a songwriter living in Brooklyn, but I hear a little bit of the softened vibes of maybe a Stella Donnelly in the way she’s crafted this track. Sure, there’s the intimacy of the strummed notes, but the song’s opening first few minutes have this playfulness that really makes fans swoon, or at least this particular listener,” and Mystic Sons said “the U.S.frontwoman introduces herself with this light and airy Courtney Barnett-inspired debut.”
“The first half and the second half of this track literally sound like two different songs, and honestly that is the type of cohesiveness I’m usually fascinated by.” – Stereofox
“Cave In” that sonically is inspired by the late ’80s and early 90’s indie rock scene is a stunning guitar-driven song about feeling stuck inside someone’s perception of a younger version of yourself and the seemingly futile effort to change their view. The EP is rounded out by three additional tracks, five total that include“Hot Faced,” a song beautifully peppered with string arrangements, written from a place of anger after realizing how as a young woman, she had been so conditioned to act submissive and small.” “Faced with Fire,” is a quirky and beautiful written track about longing to know what it could feel like to be completely in love, and “Smaller Home,” a contemplative song with haunting horn arrangements, about visiting home after being gone to college and the tension and ambiguity Margaux felt seeing herself differently in such a familiar place. Margaux is originally from Seattle and at only 20 years old, as a full-time student at the New School, Margaux writes with a stone-faced maturity far beyond her years drawing influence from 70’s folk-rock storytellers such as Joni Mitchell, multi-faceted musical impresario Lyle Brewer, and the incomparable David Byrne.
Her debut EP, More Brilliant is the Hand that Throws the Coin was produced by Sahil Ansari (Slow Dakota, JW Francis), with the help of friends and friends of friends (Reid Jenkins of Morningsiders, and Willem DeKoch of The Westerlies).
