Coeur de Pirate

french acoustic // indie pop

The debut album of an 18 years old Quebec-based musician Béatrice Martin delivers a collection of colourful and charming piano-driven pop songs. As the album ranges from melancholic notes to playful tones, the standout track “Comme Des Enfants” carries sincere joyfulness, sweet vocals, whimsical piano, organ and string arrangements. Equally enjoyable “C’était Salement Romantique” offers lovely organic nuances and a delicate instrumentation of the finest kind.

From subtle innocence to mature melodies.

    I am from Montreal, and I was pleasantly surprised when I saw Coeur de Pirate on your site.

    She is generating a lot of buzz here in Quebec.

    I am just wondering, how you heard about her.


  7. Robert Halvarsson :

    I have to agree with the others. This kind of music makes me think that the world just a little bit more beautiful then it was just a moment before.

  8. Guuzbourg :

    it’s my French record of the year. I love her song Berceuse too.

    How do you pronounce the name? My French pronunciation is atrocious :(

    Not since Joni Mitchell’s early works have I been so enthralled by a young Canadian female artist. Smash the ‘Idols’ and go with the real thing!
