Reunited with Pop: Gemme by Nolwenn Leroy
Nolwenn Leroy is on my radar through the years. I discovered her through her affiliation with Celtic music. I even wrote about that in my Celtic Music Fan blog. And she is back. This time with the infectious new single Gemme. It is the kind of style she has when she started releasing albums after her stint with Star Academy. I also think this is the kind of style suited for her.
It’s taken for the same album name. Gemme was the result of sequestering herself in a London studio. She was writing songs with different styles initially, and she confessed she was trying to ‘please everyone.’ Eventually, that was scrapped and she started creating songs that are true to her and this resulted to Gemme. The self-titled single is now out. It shows the singer exploring a sort of a cave inhabited by elementals. In a way, she still brings with her the Breton elements of her previous releases. I am referring to the mystical quality of her visuals and her music. I love the sound! It’s happy and dreamy. It is so uplifting that, coupled with her beautiful voice, you get a taste of heaven!
