We’re privileged to premiere Father & Son, a brand new video by Laraigné. The song includes guest appearances of Paul Ramirez (drums) and Chris Cresswell (vocals), both from The Flatliners.
“Not long after my father passed away, I found myself in a deep period of reflecting. His abrupt death uncovered so many questions. Now, only I could try to understand his path and our relationship with whatever memories were left.
I wrote this song effortlessly, thinking of where we both misunderstood each other. I let the pen flow on the white pages, starting from as far back as I could remember. The words just made their way out, easily appearing in my notebook. I could try to give more details but I believe the lyrics are transparent enough to explain.
I also realize while playing it live that it touches way more people than I thought it would. It is so personal – you know – but somehow it seems to feel quite universal.
The video was captured during my live performance at Pouzza Fest in Montréal in May 2022.
It is a very different version from the record. Fingerpicking, with a bit of a feely vibe.“
Recorded in January 2020 at Genesis Sound Inc in Toronto.
