Carrying an entire universe of baroque, absurd songs, the damsel charms and unsettles us with her gorgeously crafted music driven by an instinctive desire to challenge her own purpose. “What I write is always full of contrasting elements, because I enjoy baffling myself. When everything fits together too neatly, it can quickly become tiresome.” This resulted in the 13 tracks of L’Étoile thoracique, a freewheeling fresco that has the artist weaving a sprawling concerto. This opus also won several awards: the 2017 Prix Rapsat-Lelièvre, the Prix de la chanson SOCAN, a spot on the Long List of the Polaris Music Prize, four Félix awards at the Gala de L’ADISQ (Album of the Year — Critics’ Choice, Alternative Album of the Year, Singer-Songwriter of the Year, Record Producer of the Year), as well as a nomination at the 2018 JUNO Awards (Francophone Album of the Year).

“Science-fiction and magic realism streak concrete situations that go beyond poetic flights of fancy – romance, desire, self-surrender, insomnia, fantasies about the wax figures of the Grévin museum” **** – La Presse

“The lyrics convey images that are alternately clear and impressionistic” – ICI Musique

“With her fluid, mischievous voice, Klô Pelgag never forgets to touch upon the grey, engulfing nuances of melancholia” – Libération
