Vanille – “Par delà les monts”
The second album from Montreal songwriter Rachel Leblanc arrives this month, a gorgeously fragile collection of folk smeared with soft-focus touches of dream pop. As Vanille, Rachel’s songs hover in the air — verdant visions draped in gossamer, silken arrangements. The record feels rooted in an aura of nature, wound with the green hues and fresh scents of a springtime flower patch buried deep in the woods. The record occasionally tips towards the gauzy side of indie pop as the drums and strums pick up, but more often than not Leblac evokes the more delicate sway of the ‘60s, finding her way through touches of Vashti Bunyan and Sibylle Baier. Vanille’s new album La clairière is out now.
