You are releasing a carte-blanche with Azzaro for the Haute Couture digital Week, could you tell us what Seedy Tricks is about?
SK: The song explores different sounds and textures. It features tribal drums, a beat that continues on throughout the track (kind of like a train), and multiple layers with oriental
instruments, such as sitars, which I tried not to use in a typical way. The aim was to combine a psychedelic vibe with a double-edged naïvete. I pre-produce my music, but work with real instruments and real musicians, which was a very deliberate decision. Lyrically… let’s say I’m pouring my heart out…
LD: Sylvie’s music has a complete cinematographic universe, which is why as a director I am really attracted to her sound and the way she performs. The three of us already worked together on a video in which we explored several of the main themes in her work. Passion is an important element, but also the contrast between dream and reality.
AC: Romantic extremes are a central part of Sylvie’s work. This particular song describes an unrequited love. It inspired us to explore the parallels between romantic obsession and a loss of contact with reality.
