It was about a year ago that we were wildly addicted to a debut album named Coastline from a Montreal based singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist named Geoffroy, whose music reminded us of artists like SOHN, Until The Ribbon Breaks, Nick Murphay, and Daniel Woolhouse. We were rather disappointed that Coastline was so under the radar. So much more appreciation and attention it deserved, but did not get. Perhaps, that will change in the near future now that Geoffroy is back with a magnificent new song plus news of his next album (not arriving until winter of 2019, though). Wanderer, however, is reported to be a one off not from that new record, but it brings us more of his immaculately crafted alt pop and smooth strutting, soulful grooving electro. Stream/download Wanderer, here.

For the past week, I’ve been obsessively listening to Geoffroy’s debut album Coastline, a most impressive first album from the Montreal based singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. The record’s sound reminds me in part of various bands and artists I passionately adore, like Until The Ribbon Breaks, SOHN, Nick Murphy (fka Chet Faker), Daniel Woolhouse (fka Deptford Goth), and Woodkid. Not a single track is sub par; each song is infectious in its own way and well worthy of blasting loud through open windows as you cruise along on an open highway. Coastline even closes out with this sophisticated swaying, slinky shuffling Thirsty, which features Quebec’s Men I Trust on silky divine guest vocals. I oft find myself listening to the song at least twice before I allow the album to close out with Thirsty’s dreamy final notes, and I’m always left “thirsty” and parched for more. Geoffroy skillfully melds jazz, trip hop, soul, and indietronica on this heavenly tune. I highly recommend you give Coastline a whirl if you haven’t done so yet. Stream and purchase the album, here.

I was listening through Geoffroy’s debut album Coastline a few days ago, and i was so entranced by its songs that I had to try and pick a track to share, which I can tell you is no easy task. The Montreal based singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has put together a moving record. Aside from amazing tracks that feature IHM praised guest talent like Fjord and Men I Trust, the album also includes this soulful thrumming, keys and horn bountiful ballad, Call of the Wild. Geoffroy gives us a unique fusion of jazzy soul and stimulating electro/alt on the track, then tops it off with his satin voice. You can stream all of Coastline off of his Youtube channel, here. Purchase Coastline, here.

Come Friday, singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Geoffroy will be dropping his debut album Coastline. In the meantime, the Montreal based electro soul artist has revealed the record’s title track by way of a nostalgic visualizer. Coastline is sleek booming and crisp pulsing, which was initially a surprise, considering the more soulful burning tracks of yore. A silky fluidity and a gentle pluckiness find perfect balance on this cool electronic glider. The effect is sublime and soothing, to say the least, yet it’s also gently rousing and euphorically intoxicating in a retro wavy, dance ready manner. Coastline is available now from iTunes, where you can also pre-order Geoffroy’s album before it’s out on March 10th.

It was only last week that I discovered electro R&B and soul artist Geoffroy and heaping praise upon him here on IHM. It’s such a pleasant surprise to encounter his voice on a phenomenal tune named Swimming Away from fellow Montreal act Prince Club. The producer crafts a fluid deep house soundscape over which Geoffroy’s suavely delivers his Chet Faker evoking velveteen vocals. Swimming Away reverberates with a lusciously shadowy groove. Purchase the song from various sources, here.

Obviously, electronic R&B and soul is the flavor of the moment, as day after day brings us an endless stream of new acts and bands dishing out music of that essence. Sometimes, after listening to these new tunes for hours long, even fantastic tunes start sounding the same. Montreal’s GEOFFROY had the hair on the back of my neck standing with his new tune, Soaked In Gold, a song that reminds me of Chet Faker’s work with Flume, minus Harley’s flaring trap. Dramatic wobbles and slices of funk give the song a smoldering intensity. The smooth single is the title track from the singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalists’ upcoming EP, out November 13th.
