Canada vocal/percussion group Chic Gamine perform their track 'Paper Moon' for us outside in the snow in Saskatchewan, Canada. The song features on their new album 'Closer' which they have now unveiled in the UK.
The song features the band set up in a similar style to their 'Shake Off Your Worries' video, with limited instrument use. Sacha plays a single drum, while Andrina plays the triangle which gives the track a rather Christmassy feel as they huddle in the snowy prairie. Annick is leading the vocals while the other girls join in with flawless harmonies, never missing a single note. It's slow with a hint of sadness in the lyrics, but they manage to present it in an incredibly uplifting way. Chic Gamine maintain to be so contemporary and relevant, and yet never losing that classic soul vibe. At the end of the video, the group give us a further glimpse of their 'middle of nowhere' surroundings where they chose to perform their song.
Following the release of 'Closer', Chic Gamine took to the UK to promote their ground-breaking sound that Mavis Staples has likened to The Staples Singers themselves. The album was mixed by Rick Rubin's studio engineers who have previously worked with Alicia Keys and Justin Timberlake.
