HALO MAUD signs to Heavenly Recordings and shares new video, 'Baptism'
French multi instrumentalist Halo Maud releases new single 'Baptism' alongside video
Heavenly Recordings are excited to announce the signing of French singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Halo Maud, who also releases her brand-new video for "Baptism". Her first EP Du pouvoir was released on March 24, 2017, on Michel Records. The 3 tracks on the EP are the product of solo experiments alongside collaborations with Maxime Le Guil (Camille, Radiohead, Soko) and, more recently, with Robin Leduc.
Halo Maud envisioned “something like a ballet of mysterious, determined, somewhat magical women warriors living in communion with nature”. The result is a psychedelic, hypnotic, pastoral trip directed by the Parisian collective, Deezooit (pronounced like the French "dix-huit"), who are animation, pop culture, color and music fanatics.
In this realm, "Baptism" is seen as a rite of passage: rebirth as a savage, woman of many faces. The childlike voice at the beginning matures into a woman’s voice, then multiplies into a choir for an explosive and intoxicating climax. Check out the video below.
