Pomme is the performance moniker of French artist Claire Pommet. Today’s she’s releasing her very first English language track.
Very Bad comes in two formats, an album version and a soft version. The new release comes ahead of the singer’s first ever performances in the USA which are due to take place this December.
“Very Bad is a song that I wrote in 2021. It’s about being a woman, growing up, realising that when you’re a young woman you are a target for older men, and that it’s wrong. I wanted to speak about this in a funny way, in a lighter way.
The chilled out folk tinged tune sees Pomme singing sweetly against the sound of s strummed guitar, while the sounds of a gathering can be heard in the background. The lyrics however are sharp and biting.
A dedicated supporter of feminism, women’s rights and queer movements, Pomme released her third album Consolation earlier this year. Her debut album À peu près came out in 2018, and she followed that up with 2020’s Les Failles Cachées.
Whether she’s singer in English or French, Pomme sounds delightful.
