Picture the scene. It’s late at night, and you’re in a dimly lit jazz bar enjoying the coolest cocktail on the menu. Suddenly, multicolour light fills the room. Things feel new yet familiar. The spirit of psychedelic pop has infiltrated the bar.
Admittedly, this is a slightly strange way to start this premiere, but that’s how I feel about L’étreinte, the new single by Uneima. With a beautiful blending of synthesizer and guitar, this track is dreamy and catchy. I’m adding it to my playlist ASAP.
L’étreinte is taken from an upcoming solo album produced by Baptiste Leroy of Heliums. Music nerds will be interested to find out that Uneima is also the guitarist for French indie band Fiasco, and as we all know, side projects can sometimes go wrong. Luckily, that won’t be a concern for us if this tune is anything to go by, and I have a feeling there’s a lot of great music on its way.
If you’re looking for a song to put on during a cool, laid-back afternoon, then look no further. L’étreinte will stick in your head for days and have you crooning around your house in style. Check it out!
