ESNS: 2022
Émilie Tiersen (née Quinquis) went back to her roots in Breton culture. The French artist made two albums as Tiny Feet and is now, with the release of ‘Seim’, her debut for Mute, known by her Breton name QUINQUIS. She connected with producer Gareth Jones (Liars, Depeche Mode, Apparat) who offered to play some synths but their partnership grew into something more. The resulting album merges sparse electronics, immersive atmospherics, and deft melodies, all of which are carried by Émilie’s tender yet quietly soaring vocals.
