In 2017, Cecile relocated to Los Angeles from Montréal, ready to open a collaborative chapter to her craft. Among the results was her involvement on SOPHIE’s Grammy-nominated album Oil Of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides. Co-writer and vocalist on the album, Cecile earned widespread critical acclaim including from Pitchfork who wrote “The greatest emotional load is carried by Believe’s towering lead vocal, which boldly walks a tightrope stretched between the deeply affecting and the over-the-top.”
On Made in Heaven, Cecile uses a painter’s approach to sonics, exploiting the bones of pop to push new forms that are at once familiar and foreign. Edges are blurred, and a soft focus is created. Unconcerned with genre, these songs are propelled by expression, sensuality and a committed search for freedom. Languid, spatial soundscapes bring the audience through scenes of longing, release, euphoria and pure pop buoyancy. Despite dark passages, Made In Heaven is emphatically positive, pointing to the stars for ultimate guidance, urging the audience to remember the beauty of life.
