Halo Maud Shares New Single “Terres Infinies”
Following her guest vocal turns on The Chemical Brothers recent album, French singer, multi-instrumentalist and producer Halo Maud has announced her new album Celebrate, due out March 22 via Heavenly Recordings. To accompany the announcement Maud has shared a video for first single “Terres Infinies”. An almighty blast of baroque psych-pop that’s equal parts Imperial phase Stereolab-style avant pop and Lonerism-era Tame Impala, the track was produced by Maud with Greg Saunier (Deerhoof). Inspired by a Soviet sci-fi classic, it houses a madly catchy, wordless chorus that will loop around in your head from the very first time you hear it.
Commenting on the track Halo Maud says: “A friend suggested that I see the film Stalker by Tarkovski. The general ambience haunted me for some time. I began to have a recurring dream of a dried-up and deserted landscape that I had to traverse, without looking back, to find fertile lands. Then I realized this wasn’t too far from the actual state of affairs. I needed to cultivate a sense of humor about it. Simply put, turn this vision upside down. I imagined a place where we could drink directly from the clouds and read our futures in the trees, which is where this song came from. I produced it, along with a few others on the album, in collaboration with Greg Saunier. Discovering his group – Deerhoof – was one of the biggest musical shocks of my life. Working with him was a dream come true.”
Halo Maud’s new album Celebrate more than lives up to its name. The opening title track like a lo-fi broadcast from a nearby radio before opening out into a glorious cacophony of bass and discordant guitar. By the time the track reaches its middle section, it’s as if curtains have been pulled back to reveal a psychedelic party kicking off in your back garden. It’s obvious that you’re invited, you just need to bring an open mind.
