We are still under the charm of her fourth album Rest (2017), and the follow-up EP Take 2 (Dec. 2018) has only extended her state of grace. Since her adolescent début album Charlotte for Ever, closely managed by her father, she has come into her own with some of the finest music producers (Air, Beck, Connan Mockasin, etc.) and has crafted her distinct style with SebastiAn, the French artist and producer whose elegant electronic music melds perfectly with the fragile contours of her unmistakeable opalescent voice. With Rest, in a break from previous work, Charlotte Gainsbourg returns to the French language, with powerfully emotional lyrics—shedding her supposed reserve to reveal a more Gainsbourgian boldness than ever. In concert, surrounded by luminous scenography and a particularly effervescent backup band who support her with warmth and éclat, she navigates between pop majesty and stroboscopic electronic music, drawing from her entire repertoire, including the “Lemon Incest” and “Charlotte for Ever” of her younger self.
