Berlin based Bolivian singer-songwriter David Lemaitre has announced the release of his debut full-length album, due out in Spring. The yet-to-be-titled album follows his first EP, Valediction, released last year.
David draws influences from different cultures and genres, from the songs of the South American highlands where he grew up and the 70’s psychedelia his dad listened to, to progressive rock, electronica and folk.
According to a press release, “David’s song writing process is an ever-evolving journey, while remaining unattached to whether the resulting songs have a minimalist or electronic pop sound.”
In David’s own words, “something is only complete, not when nothing can be added anymore, but when nothing can be removed.”
Whilst we wait for the new album to drop, here’s the charming and dreamy ‘Jacques Cousteau’ off Valediction.
