Chaouche - I'll Lose My Head
'I'll Lose My Head' is Chaouche's debut single, a cathartic hymn channelling creativity from darkness.
"The overarching theme of my songs is "healing". Collectively my songs contribute to a greater understanding of particular issues I found overbearing and traumatising as a child and young adult. Each song is dedicated to a memory or experience that has come from a negative source that’s ultimately been turned into a strength."
Chaouche lists Bjork, Sufjan Stevens and Rufus Wainwright amongst her influences and is also heavily inspired by film composers such as Ennio Morricone, Hans Zimmer and Danny Elfman. The piano features prominently in her music and is bolstered by deftly applied production of electronic and acoustic sounds and effects, her own massed harmonies, cello and violin.
Chaouche has further singles and live gigs planned this year and an album to follow in 2018.
