Lydia Kepinski was born in Montreal in 1993. From her childhood, her French-Polish origins drew her to the music of Barbara, Brassens and Gainsbourg. She studied classical piano to then tackle pop music and teach herself to play guitar. Lydia puts forth all of her facets on a first bitter-sweet four track release which might be described as « poetico-synthetic alternative pop ». From upbeat pieces to rougher, more intimate ones, Kepinsky doesn’t mince her words. Her whacky humour transcends emotionally charged lyrics, imbued with dark yet luminous beauty. Her clear though sometimes harsh and brittle voice is backed by airy arrangements punctuated by strings. Lydia fully endorses her affinity for pop culture while flaunting the irony that so caracterizes her. With her eccentric touch, the multi-instrumentalist doesn’t hesitate to use language in a falsely candid tone which ranges from tragicomic to scathing in order to evoke images. Gritty, raw, chiaroscuro.
