Traveling, somewhere in the shadow of a sleep; within the dream flower, where we sway & lilt between consciousness, you will find Rosier’s ‘La Poison’.
Texturally meeting in the foyer of a Sigur Ros, Joni Mitchell, & Cocteau Twins household, the Quebecois group offers us a delightfully delicate, but properly luxurious creation. With stuttered arpeggios framing off-kilter melodies, & a crisp, warm production, one finds it easy to become entranced by the softly spoken magic spells.
And to those who stumble over French, such as this writer, delving further finds the lyrics dark, emotive, & complex. Repetitious, stream-of-conscious type stanzas, with references to drinking black water, a guileful neighbor. & inevitably, the poison – many images come to mind, perhaps turning this dreamlike state into a pleasant-but-ominous daymare. Simply enchanting.
