Coeur De Pirate – Comme Des Enfants

Banish those Regina Spektor comparisons straight away because this is in another league altogether (La Liga). Coeur De Pirate has been longlisted (we like this longlister too) for the Canadian Polaris Music Prize but if Quebec’s Béatrice Martin has not been shortlisted in less than a day then there is something radically wrong. You know how we discuss new music in perpetuity and while most acts are worth taking heed of it doesn’t happen that often that we’re spellbound. ‘Comme Des Enfants’ is perfect, building to a soft crescendo while effortlessly displaying why the French language is so beguiling. Beyond Paradis in fact. KD

    This is nice! It doesn’t sound that much like Regina Spektor to me, which, in my book, is a good thing.

    Would never label anyone a dick but the girl was born in Quebec as far as I know. May be living in Montreal now. I am a huge Barca fan so am of the opinion that La Liga is the best in the world. Not sure what point you are making. Is it because she sings in French?
