“I listened to a song that Maxwell sent me and said to myself, ‘this guy is incredible, I must work with him’,” says Christophe Vaillant who performs as Le SuperHomard.
His latest record, a collaboration with Australian singer Maxwell Farrington, was born from an instantaneous connection the pair felt when they met during a joint concert at La Boule Noire, on the MaMA Festival in 2019.
The result is a seamless collaboration from two people who share a great musical intuition. Marrying Farrington’s rich baritone croon with Vaillant’s deft yet stirring compositions and you’re left with a record that feels like a lost classic.
Many people have chosen the lockdown to make music that is representative of the strange times we live in, with feelings of isolation and claustrophobia cloaking the tone. Here, the pair have made a buoyant and jubilant record. This is something Vaillant picked up on when reflecting on the record. “Given the bulk of this album was recorded during an anxiety-inducing pandemic curiously it only reminds me of all the pleasure I had by working on these songs.”
