Space For Love / A Path To You is the third chapter of FOXTROTT’s series of musical diptychs, started last Spring.
Through the two new pieces, FOXTROTT reaffirms her distinct sound and creates a sonic universe oozing with warmth, refined production and soulfulness. FOXTROTT pursues her quest to blur the lines between electronic and organic, masculine and feminine. Space For Love is a radiant, forward-moving declaration of love. “I come to you with nothing but space for love. Here, close to you, growing in a place of enough.” The second piece, A Path To You, is a highly meditative instrumental track, luminous and entrancing – a perfect Spring companion.Support on Bandcamp
About the series of diptychs:
With her new series of independently released double-singles, FOXTROTT throws away the rulebook and wants to take us along on her journey. “I love the short form of the diptych in music, where one piece resonates with the other, in a dialogue. It’s a mini-universe of its own. After a few years navigating the music industry with its ups and downs, I wanted to reconnect with spontaneity, ease and the joy of sharing music. By moving away from more rigid structures, I feel a renewed enthusiasm. Honestly, I feel like I am just getting started.”
MH Delorme, also known as FOXTROTT, is a producer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist born and raised in Montreal. Her genre-defying, unique experimental pop has been making heads turn since the release of her first EP “Shields” in 2013. With her Polaris Music Prize nominated LP “A Taller Us” (2015) and her trilogy “Meditations I-II-III” (2018), both released on esteemed UK imprint One Little Independent Records, Delorme has worked on building a musical universe of her own, pairing intricate, raw yet elegant productions with a strong sense of melody and commanding, soulful vocals. In 2022, she releases the first two iterations of a series of diptychs. The independently released The Motion / Looking For Your Love and Take it Back / Go for Joy, has garnered support from Benji B on his BBC Radio1 show, and tastemakers across the globe (Lefto, Le Mellotron, CBC radio, etc.), as well as significant playlisting support on streaming platforms. In the last years, her work has garnered support from the likes of the BBC 1 & BBC 6 (Lauren Laverne, Annie Mac, Jamz Supernova, Don Letts and more), international press (I.D, Dazed, The Fader, Line of Best Fit, Nowness, etc) and has taken her to perform in London, New York, Paris, Berlin, Tokyo and beyond.
She has also worked with Redbull Music Academy as a studio mentor, is currently teaching production classes for Women on Ableton Live. In 2021, she participated in BBE Records’s critically acclaimed tribute album to David Bowie, “Modern Love” with her version of “Chant of the ever circling skeletal family”. Over the last few years she has applied her skills as a film composer, scoring multiple short and feature films.She recently won “Best Original Music” at the Canadian Screen Award for her work on “Sugar Daddy” (Dir. Wendy Morgan, 2021). Her most recent scoring work is on the feature film “Mà Sai Gon” by director Khoa Le, premiered at Visions du Réel in April 23.
Throughout her own releases and in her work as a film composer, producer and collaborator (Ouri, Jean-Michel Blais, Cadenza, Pierre kwenders and more), FOXTROTT flows effortlessly through different musical worlds without ever losing her distinct signature, at once accessible and deeply insular. The answer seems to lie in the way she relates to music: “I try to forget about it all, I aim to hear something I haven’t quite heard before. I am not really interested in copying codes. My relationship with music is inside out rather than outside in.”
