Singer-songwriter-guitarist Paul Péchenart, co-founder of the Dogs, talks about cities, relationships, travel, questioning and astonishment. If «Mon coin de ciel» were a film, it would be classified in dramatic comedies where the lightness of images meets darker atmospheres.
A sensitive rock album. Here, the emotional context is tinged with melancholy but also sunny enthusiasm.
« Mon coin de ciel » is the seventh album by Paul Péchenart. Theo Bertou joined the band as a drummer. The bass is provided by Esteban Avellan and Paul Péchenart junior is on guitar and backing vocals. The recording, mixing and mastering were done at the Accès Digital studio in Rouen by François Casaÿs.
Like Paul Péchenart’s last albums, the writing and production of the music took place over a period of about 2 years. Most of the songs are original, unpublished and recent. The general tone is reminiscent of the one already explored in previous productions. We only talk about what we know well. In this case, it is cities, relationships, travels, questions and surprises that it is.
If it were a film, it would be classified in dramatic comedies where the lightness of images meets darker atmospheres. The opposition of these opposites gives relief to the whole. The emotional context is tinged with melancholy but also sunny enthusiasm.
Talking about this new album is talking about songs, translations in words and sounds of what makes the salt of our days. It is to speak of Paul Péchenart’s personal way of looking at the world and the people who inhabit it.
De 5 à 7
Il y a des jours
En stéréo et en couleurs
Impossible de t’oublier
Sur le coup de midi
Mon coin de ciel
Plus léger que l’air
Un été invincible
