Quebec’s Gaspard Eden is set to release the debut album, Soft Power on November 13th via Coyote Records. To coincide with the announce Eden is premiering the video for his latest single “Baby Black Hole.”
Together, directors Gaspard Eden, Dragos Chiriac, and Xavier Bélanger-Dorval create a video both funny and seducing, mixing the aesthetics of Ballet Bauhaus and Japanese science-fiction. Filmed on 16mm film by DOP Dragos Chiriac (Men I Trust) its handcrafted set and partly handmade costumes make for impressive organic visuals. Mixed with geeky allusions to photo and cinema classics, it results in a playful visual harmony of elegant dancing, jazzy aliens, and jaded earthlings.
Gaspard Eden’s debut album, Soft Power, travels the backdrop of the psyche. Considering music to be the product of intuition, the self-taught Canadian singer-songwriter plays within his own subconscious, reappropriating and transforming past experiences in an audible catharsis. Soft Power’s ten tracks present a solid and evolved sound. With his varied tempos and his expressive production, Eden articulates an impressive variety of moods within a disarmingly solid sound. Involved in all aspects of his project, he completes the various mental universes featured on his first full-length album with music videos and. illustrations as evocative as his album.
“Baby Black Hole” is available on all music services now.
