about

Montreal’s Marie-Hélène L. Delorme, aka FOXTROTT, will release a series of three EPs throughout 2018 via One Little Indian Records. The physical package including bonus tracks will be released October 5th.

Each of the three self-produced EPs, which are to be released throughout 2018, explore the complex relationship between the inner life and the outer world. The musician developed these tracks during a solitary retreat to southwestern Mexico, even incorporating ambient sounds from her voyage into the music.

Delorme expands; “My first album A Taller Us was one of upward growth, a bit like the unrolling of the spine. I started to write songs as a way to cope with anxiety about things I was going through as a young adult. It was emotionally dense, and it turned out to be a very healing process. After that whole cycle of producing, releasing and touring A Taller Us, I found myself at a different, more peaceful place.”

In the wake of this newfound state of being, Delorme has created three meditative bodies of work, the first of which represents the internal and external – imagining the inside and the outside through a window. She says; “Being present and open to the world is a wonderful thing but also can be threatening, scary. By opening one’s heart, one also opens it to suffering and pain. The world can be simultaneously beautiful and horrific – it can make us want to close the window, but I’ve come to realise you have to welcome it in, with all its flaws. In vs out, love vs fear, individual identity vs connection – these are all aspects I was drawn to.”

Having channelled fears, insecurities and assorted “twentysomething stuff” into her debut A Taller Us, Delorme found herself more confident, relaxed and open on Meditations I-II-III, a state of being that she really found herself embracing during her visit to Oaxaca, Mexico. “This is where I found the energy and the tone I wanted to capture for the EPs; the warmth, the sounds… It was a happy solitude, a sense of spiritual intimacy, from which I was observing and listening to the outside world. The birds, the animals, and the police sirens you hear ever so faintly on the tracks are from Oaxaca.”
