About the event


Pomme unveils her new project “Saisons”. A conceptual, orchestral album that is out of the box.

This opus is conceived as a theatrical act in two movements: “autumn-winter” out now, and “spring- summer”, out in spring.

These two acts, though separate gives us life to the “Seasons”, where each Dtle is placed in resonance with a month of the year. A powerful project that aims to surprise, and once again demonstrates the arDst’s singular arDsDc vision.

AGer three criDcally acclaimed albums, “A peu près” (2017), “Les Failles” (2019) and “consolaDon” (2022), Pomme has won the hearts of an eclecDc audience, not least through excepDonal concert producDons. The album “Saisons”, in fact, was born during the preparaDon of an unprecedented series of orchestral concerts during her “consolaDon tour”. This experience, conducted with conductor Malvina, inspired Pomme to create a new album combining folk music and classical heritage.

It’s also a project that Pomme wanted to be collaboraDve, inviDng other talents to interpret the seasons in their own way, through images as well as music. AGer “consolaDon”, Pomme once again teams up with Flavien Berger, who brings an electronic touch to the project and co-composes the autumnal act dubbed “magie mauve”, a nod to their previous creaDon “magie bleue”. A collaboraDon between friends in which the boundaries between musical styles disappear, giving way to boundless creaDvity. The winter movement, enDtled “carte de noël”, was composed with American musician and producer Aaron Dessner, a member of the band The NaDonal, who notably worked with Taylor SwiG on her albums “Folklore” and “Evermore”. A folk enthusiast in perfect symbiosis with Pomme’s musical sensibility, with whom she composes the focus track of this first ediDon of “Saisons”: “_dec carte de noël”. This track sounds like a nursery rhyme Dnged with mystery and melancholy, with an unshakeable sweetness, to be listened to by the fireside in anDcipaDon of the fesDve season.

Since last January, Pomme has been on tour throughout France and Europe. She gave two excepDonal concerts, both sold out, at the Zénith in Paris, accompanied by the orchestra that accompanies her on this new album.

In 2024, Pomme will embark on a U.S. tour and plans a residency in Japan at the end of the year.

Catherine Savage

Catherine Savage writes to understand and be understood. Drawing inspiration from other genre-melding musicians such as Joni Mitchell, Joanna Newsom, and Lianne la Havas, Savage’s sound exists somewhere between indie rock and country, somewhere between folk and jazz. In her latest EP “Back Problems,” Savage draws from reality and fiction alike, focusing her sharp wit and keen eye for detail on the confrontations and contradictions of romantic love. From the lovesick desperation of her single “Your Dolly” to the pulsating anger of “After That,” Savage’s songs explore what it means to love, to shape-shift beneath another’s gaze, and to find oneself again in the act of gazing back.
