Paupière is a glamorous and flamboyant young trio from Montreal, dripping with underground sensuality.
Their new album, entirely in French, is filled with those little bittersweet tunes you just can't get out of your head; sensitive writing harnessed to serve the melody. A raw kind of poetry fitting in somewhere between Montreal's current psychedelic scene, and the French pop sound of the 1980s. Pop at once naïve and profound, lighthearted and powerful. With only a 4-track EP from 2016 under their belt, Paupière has managed to carve themselves a spot as one of Quebec's major sonic discoveries, signing simultaneously with Lisbon Lux Records (Outside) in Canada, and Les Disques Entreprises (Sony Music) in Europe. The trio has already hit the stages of the Francofolies, FME, M for Montreal, as well as Bars en Trans in France, and will be playing at the upcoming Mama Festival in Paris.
