Montréal-based artist Poirier is back with the first single from his upcoming album, “Café Com Leite” with Brazilian singer (now based in Paris) Flavia Coelho. The new single is out now with Wonderwheel Recordings and available everywhere you can stream music. Listen here
The new single transports the listener to the shores of Brazil – to enjoy a “coffee with milk” – with a stunning vocal delivery from Coelho, gentle guitar licks, and a danceable rhythm.
Poirier reflects, “Flavia Coelho and I met in Paris for the first time at her studio just before a gig I had later that night. We chilled at her studio and listened to a few beats I had on a USB key. The connection was great right away. The beat that I had really in mind for her was also the one she liked the most. She did a vocal idea on the spot as soon as the beat played, riding the beat who had already the guitar lines on it (props to Daniel Leznoff who plays the guitar). There you go, we had a good idea for a song. It became “Café Com Leite” in it’s final form a few weeks later. It’s a love song about differences, the coffee mixed with milk being a metaphor. It’s been ages that I wanted to do a song like that, soft and charming. Some hints of bossa nova too, which is something I never did before. This song is exactly the vibe being reflected on my album “Soft Power” and that’s why it’s the first single.”
Poirier’s “Soft Power” LP is due out on New York’s Wonderwheel Recordings in June.
