Hi all,
Here's a french folk rock song.
Joel Auge has written the lyrics and he sings.
The lyrics are not easy to translate because this is a poetic text.
It's about a man walking in the street. He's thinking about his life…

Really liked the two-note motif that you used throughout, and how you also used a two-chord harmony. Very cool, gentle swing Liked your between-the-verse interludes with pan flute, etc. Really liked this one!

Thanks Tom,
You've well noticed the two-chord harmony.
The major one : C / Gm7
and the minor one : Cm / D7
The passage from major to minor creates the atmosphere of this song.

"The passage from major to minor creates the atmosphere of this song."

And the atmosphere is great. We love it all.

Joel has a smooth, nuanced and soulful voice...outstanding.

The progression, the band and the mix are excellent.

Very enjoyable!!!

Christian:

Really enjoyed this tune. Very cool touch with the panflute—totally pops. Joel did a great job on the vocal; and it fits sweetly into the mix. Good tune!!

All my best to you,

Deej
