Clara Luciani – Respire Encore

When I first wrote about Clara Luciani, over three years ago, she was an upcoming French singer. By now, we may conclude she delivered on the promise. For those in doubt: just listen to her new album Coeur (โ€˜heartโ€™). Itโ€™s a record that was born out of a profound love for 1960s and โ€˜70s music, but in the meantime firmly planted in the 2020s. Thatโ€™s French DJ Breakbotโ€™s contribution to the project. He adds a modern touch to Lucianiโ€™s retro influences.

Album track Respire Encore (โ€˜breathe againโ€™) is a great example of this nu-disco sound. It features a prominent bass and funky guitar riffs, as well as a beautiful string arrangement, played by no less than 18 violinists. Backing vocals are provided by Claraโ€™s older sister Lea Luciani, who was the subject of earlier single Ma Soeur.

Lyrically, Respire Encore is an ode to post-lockdown life. โ€œI wrote this song to convince myself that happier days were coming, the artist explains. Looks like she was right about that!
