Un album concept folk à la saveur d’un court métrage. A folk concept album that plays like a short film soundtrack.
A folk concept album that plays like a short-film soundtrack, Moonfruits' début full-length album Ste-Quequepart (2017) \saint-kehk-pahr or Saint Somewhere\ tells the story of a village making a hopeful go of a hard here and now. Writing in French and pulling as much from their imaginations as from their encounters on the road, intimate moments give way to cinematic arrangements as characters emerge and speak through song.
“Ste-Quequepart takes listeners on an all-Canadian road trip to a town that doesn't exist.”
“Cleverly marrying enthralling musical storytelling with the political, Moonfruits ... transport the listener to Ste-Quequepart – a familiar place with a familiar plight ... It is at once haunting, steeped in melodrama, and a vibrant celebration of the human spirit; this an original and wonderfully diverse album.”
“Moonfruits deliver vocal-heavy folk with both simple charm and harmonic complexity.”
In the dead of winter 2013, Moonfruits blossomed in a baseboard-heated cabin in Low, Québec. Nurtured by moonlight and brought to life in the streets of Europe, their first EP Début (2014) highlights the unadorned sound of guitar and two voices.
