EDITORS’ NOTES

Ariane Moffatt has a voice you could float away on. Since her 2002 debut, Aquanaute, the Montreal-based electro-pop singer has dabbled freely in reggae, folk, and rock, but we've never heard her quite like this. Inspired, in part, by the birth of her third child, Moffatt again explores themes of human interaction with disarming intimacy on this sixth album (the title translates to Precious Little Hands), reflecting on the ties that bind—and break—with an earthy tone. Opener “Du souffle pour deux” rides a lazy ’70s soul groove with lyrics that could alternately refer to her difficult birthing experience or a relationship’s challenges. On the suggestive disco-funk club gem “Pour toi,” Moffatt admits to having “immoral dreams,” and the bittersweet breakup reverie “Viaduc” is about struggling to turn the page.
