ANNIE-CLAUDE DESCHÊNES

Announces debut album ‘LES MANIÈRES DE TABLE’ out April 5th (digitally) & April 26th (physically) via via Italians Do It Better + Bonsound.

Having recently released singles “MENACE MINIMALE” and “PHONES“, today Montreal based multidisciplinarity artist Annie-Claude Deschênes has announced her debut album ‘LES MANIÈRES DE TABLE’ is set for release April 5th (digitally) & April 26th (physically) via via Italians Do It Better Bonsound.

As a key figure on the Montreal independent music scene for the last two decades, she has left her mark as a performer & visual artist with Duchess Says & PyPy; two bands that are renowned as much for their electrifying live shows as they are for their artistic sensibilities. Always forward, her exploratory approach takes her into uncharted territory with her debut as a solo artist. The urgency that characterises her work remains, but frustration & aggression give way to introspection & vulnerability. Driven by the endless need to create outside her comfort zone, Annie-Claude Deschênes reinvents herself once again.

Over the course of her career, Annie-Claude Deschênes shared the stage with a number of renowned bands, including The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Teenage Jesus & the Jerks, The Black Lips, The Hives, The Hot Snakes & Buzzcocks, among others. Her extensive touring has taken her all over the world, playing venues & festivals (Primavera Fest, Eurockéennes de Belfort, OSHEAGA, Sled Island, etc.) as well as unconventional locations like golf courses, factories & churches. Her career is punctuated by collaborative projects linking various art forms, including the co-founding of the collective Conclusion Finale, with whom she exhibits at Concordia University’s VAV gallery, the DARE-DARE diffusion center & Université Laval in Quebec City, & the production of the soundtrack for Yves St-Laurent’s Los Angeles fashion show with PyPy. Winner of the 2022 cohort of the PHI NORD program, she was awarded a two-week immersive creative residency, during which her songs transformed into a tangible debut album titled ‘LES MANIÈRES DE TABLE’.

The first loop will take you back, to factor in this phone signal sound and loop it into the base of the textures of this track, experimental and very clever. The beat is intoxicating, this immense landscape sweeps into focus with the percussive elements, vibrant escalating rhythms, phaser shifting notes and sharp tones, delicate harmonies whispering through the vivid landscape before vocal uproar. This track leaves you in awe of the unpredictable yet big journey you are about to embark on. Immediately Annie-Claude distinguishes this ambitious projection, it’s colossal and consumes this gripping aura.
