"Comme un saule” By Ghostly Kisses is Northern Transmissions Song of the Day

Montreal’s Ghostly Kisses have returned with “Comme un saule,” the track features Margaux Sauvé’s haunting vocalsy, “Comme un saule” sees her tackle a subject that is both in tune with the spirit of times, and that resonates on a deeply personal level, where the right words could only be found in her mother tongue.

“Comme un saule ” describes the thoughts of someone consumed and haunted by the pain and memories of a past toxic relationship,” says Sauvé . “The song also implies that time can act as a solace, which is sometimes necessary to the healing process. Metaphorically, it also implies the wind of change within society. A change is taking place; abusive relationships can no longer stay silent, as well as many taboo topics that are now being more openly discussed and exposed in the public sphere.”

Written and co-produced with long-time collaborator Louis-Étienne Santais alongside Thomas Bartlett, “Comme un saule” is a beautiful and powerful blend of organic and electronic elements, inviting the listener into dreamy introspection.

Having recently supported Ry X in London, and with upcoming tour dates with Men I Trust, Lord Huron, and Pomme, Ghostly Kisses will be in concert this summer on June 26 at Massey Hall in Toronto, July 3 in Montreal at Club Soda as part of the Montreal International Jazz Festival and on July 11 in Quebec City at FEQ in the Parc de la Francophonie and at Hillside Festival in Ontario on July 30.
