French Singer Mélanie Pain at Zouk

Delivering confessional folk-pop chansons in English and French with the coy, breathy vocals of an ingénue, Mélanie Pain has the sort of oeuvre and style that inspire descriptions like “sugar and spice” and “naughty but nice”. As one of the main voices of French indie cover-concept band, Nouvelle Vague, since their debut album in 2004, she has seduced audiences with sassy sweetness on originals and covers like "This is Not a Love Song", "Teenage Kicks", "Killing Moon"and "Dance with Me". Talented as she is, Mélanie has come up with My Name, her own debut solo album which incorporates personal reflections and influences such as Françoise Hardy, Nick Cave, Claudine Longet, Nancy Sinatra and Leonard Cohen in an intimate, charming mix of French pop with a dash of folk and Americana. If the music doesn’t take you into the faintly smoky echoes of an imagined, vintage Parisian coffeeshop, it will surely ease you, semi-intoxicated, into the night.
