If it was a material, it would be a metallic velvet; the texture both bouncy and rough; the movement somewhere between a silk-lifting breeze and the ripple caused by skip stones on a lake…While Zaho de Sagazan’s voice has a peculiar character to it, it soon seeps in as something familiar and powerfully intimate. That of a sister, a best friend, a shaman, a therapist? In any case, that of a unique writer, composer and performer. And her first album, La symphonie des éclairs, only confirms the buzz that has spread since 2022’s wave of events - namely a few outstanding shows at major festivals including newcomer support from le Printemps de Bourges and Les Francofolies de la Rochelle, the Chorus des Hauts-de-Seine prize, the Transmusicales de Rennes…

Zaho de Sagazan, 23, sits with her dark-electro repertoire at the unlikely crossroads between greats such as Barbara and Christophe, alternative electro artist Koudlam, and Cold Cave, where French introspective chanson meets the rightful heirs of Kraftwerk. Her voice cuts through the emotions, tearing apart the peacefully seductive girl song blueprint. Zaho harnessed her voice as she did her music, by working relentlessly and with great pleasure. At first, the piano was associated with chocolate doughnuts, which were her reward after each lesson during the classical training she started in 6th grade. While she eventually got sick of it, she returned to it a few years later. Her obsessive and self-taught passion is reflected in her current writing - as she launches the melodies in a straight line, repeating the same two chords to the point of hypnosis.
