"In acoustics, everything is more visible, it's both very exciting and it takes a lot of work," says Brigitte at the microphone of Europe 1. And for good reason, the duo ends a tour where on stage, it does not matter. There was that, or almost. "We were a lot more tired at the end of the acoustic gigs than the ones that lasted longer, with lots of musicians, all of a sudden there was only us, so everything was visible. to relax, to rest, we had to be very careful with our voices, "they conclude. They now unveil an acoustic album of the tracks from their latest album, "Nues" ... called "All Nudes".
An album illustrated by Pénélope Bagieu
"One of my best memories of this acoustic tour is when we sang while Pénélope Bagieu drew us, live," says Sylvie Hoarau, one of two "Brigitte". The designer - recently awarded the prestigious Eisner Prize - also illustrated the duo's acoustic album. A drawing, for example, depicts two women who embrace one another, crying ... which is reminiscent of their hit, Palladium , where they tell the comfort they bring to a friend. heartache.
If listening to the 21 tracks of this new album is a suspended moment, it is also not the happiest. Brigitte prefers, with this disc, bet on the emotion and also that of the body. It is not for nothing that it is called "All Naked": "when we are naked, we do not feel particularly beautiful or sexy, often, but rather vulnerable and fragile. Nudity that has something sexy, being stripped of everything is not easy, it's just daring to hide nothing, "says Aurélie Saada, the other member of this duet.
The duo Brigitte will be in private concert on the program Musique! with Emilie Mazoyer, on Europe 1, Monday, December 10th. Register here.
