- Sophisticated pop rock chanson
Before setting off on her solo musical voyage, Clara Luciani had sailed with the likes of La Femme and Nouvelle Vague. Now alone on board, the musician has opened her horizons to a universe that is both sombre and sunny, sometimes even stormy, but always lucid and tinged with sophisticated nostalgia. Oscillating between chanson, pop and alternative rock, she is the modern incarnation of a character somewhere between Françoise Hardy and Patti Smith and bestows an elegant and disenchanted profundity on her songs, not out of love, but as a sign of rupture. An artist with a sensual voice, who, guitar in hand, braves the perils of live performance with panache and is never afraid to pull the pin on her explosive Grenade(s).
