- Pop chanson from an imaginary country
Time is running through our fingers. In order to soften the blow of the passing years, Jérémie Kisling, "the little prince of Swiss chanson", has kept his adultager soul and an innocence totally lacking in naivety. In his songs, melancholy extends a hand to laughter, dreams kiss daily life on both cheeks, sorrow takes care to pick up the small pebbles that love leaves behind. His latest album, Malhabiles, does away with folk refrains, which are replaced by a sensitive prose in an electrifying pop style. The years pass, but this Peter Pan of chanson with the deliciously nonchalant voice just goes on reinventing himself.
