Latest release

Le soleil et la mer

Released on August 26, 2022

Building on their experience as members of various bands, Adèle Trottier-Rivard and Nicolas Basque formed a duo in 2016, adopting the name Bibi Club. Since the get-go, the band has embraced minimalism, not so much in their aesthetic choices, as in a desire to avoid transforming sounds too much, preferring to focus on raw musical power. Their 2019 debut EP showcased radical sonic exploration. Across four bold tracks, Adèle and Nicolas immediately established a musical language rooted in authenticity and individuality.

Bibi Club has been attempting to push back space-time boundaries in their music ever since. Their sound is unique on the Montreal scene, borrowing from 70s post-punk New York bands (e.g. Arthur Russell, Talking Heads, Suicide), the West Coast spiritual jazz of Alice Coltrane, as well as the current experimental pop scene in England (e.g. Tirzah, Dean Blunt). Bibi Club’s compositions can be described as electro-pop rock focusing on vocals, guitars, synths and drum machines. The influence of radical movements is undeniable, but at its core, the band conveys a cozy, cheerful feeling, in the spirit of their famous “living-room party music.” 

Just in time for the warm weather, bright days and joys of summer, Montréal duo Bibi Club are unveiling “Le soleil et la mer,” their debut album which will be available August 26. Like a song through an open window, it feels like we’ve been waiting a long time for Le soleil et la mer. The debut release by Bibi Club, aka real-life lovers Adèle Trottier-Rivard and Nicolas Basque, is sun-kissed and wave-washed, shimmering and chic, a party overdue after two years that have felt (to everyone!) like winter.
