The floor in the little underground store is yellow and the visuals on the walls are colorful and mesmerizing. How could someone make a room in a dark metro station this warm and cozy? Angèle didn’t do it by herself. Charlotte Abramow is a Belgian photographer and filmmaker who has made video clips for Angèle. The creative friendship now resulted in an artsy pop-up shop in Brussels metro station Rogier that you can visit starting this Friday until next Saturday.
The Voice of a Generation
Angèle already stole our hearts with her singles “La Loi de Murphy”, “Je Veux Tes Yeux” and “La Thune”. Three songs that recall the vibe of a young, funny and poppy musician. However, is it possible that she’ll surprise us on this album and show another side of herself as an artist? No disappointments there. As I got my hands on a CD, I searched for my walkman player as I don’t own a car to play it. I popped my headphones on as the first track started playing, “La Thune”. Not an unknown song as it was a single. I’m walking around the city and Angèle is telling me how we do it all for the gram, how we only think about what other people will think and how we’re actually so lonely behind our little screens. She sounds prophetical, as if an angel is doing slam poetry in the softest way ever.
