Klô Pelgag invites us to reflect on freedom, its meaning, and how to attain it. “What are we talking about when it comes to freedom? Even the noblest sentiments, even the seasons can lock us up. Living to the fullest might mean to constantly challenge yourself. It’s in this shared quest, this kindness between the protagonist and their friend that a cure can be found – the feeling of being understood, ” she says. The ever-ascending synths convey a desire to be free. Somewhere between dance and levitation, between a mantra and a statement, ,” concludes Pelgag. The video for the song was directed by her longtime collaborator Laurence BAZ Morais. It features a series of shots that illustrate these questions. He explains his creative process: “ Through visual metaphors the video explores how we hide our raw emotions behind deceptive facades. The goal is to shine a light on the inner struggle, the tension between the carefully crafted appearance and the chaotic reality.

The artist from Bas-Saint-Laurent (QC) announces that she will soon be back on the road in Quebec, Paris and Brussels, with 15 dates on her schedule so far. With five musicians, Klô Pelgag invites us to join her on her eternal quest for fun. Eager to create music that is as urgent and powerful as our emotions, she figures that the answer might lie in every concert, a rare opportunity to share a moment that leads us to acknowledge the natural beauty of things, Abracadabra. Tickets go on sale this Thursday, June 6, at 10AM EST. Other dates will be announced soon.

Klô Pelgag talks about the theme of her new opus Abracadabra in this teaser. Watch it HERE. Abracadabra is a quest for the absolute, a desire to still believe in something. For all the knots we must untie in order to appear as we really are, without fear or embarrassment ,” shares the singer-songwriter.

Each new Klô Pelgag album reiterates the unique place she occupies in the Francophone cultural landscape. “Abracadabra is no exception. From the very first moments of the music, it’s clear that the contrasts that have always been part of the work have been refined. That the powerful, evocative poetic images have become clearer. Between fragility and complexity, the melodic flights fragment to reappear transfigured. The pieces showcase the full elegance of Klô Pelgag’s voice, and bear witness to a genuine exploratory quest through the various ways in which she uses it. The magic lies in her ability to surprise and in her apparent refusal to stagnate creatively.

This time, working alone as a producer, Klô Pelgag has surrounded herself with her stronghold of recent years: Étienne Dupré on bass, François Zaïdan on guitar, Pete Pételle on drums, Virginie Reid on keyboards and Pierre Girard on sound mixing.
