Reverie, the sophomore album from Canadian composer Flying Hórses, was released on February 22nd, 2019. Stuffed full of texture and held down with piano arrangements that guide you through a bleak and stormy musical narrative, there’s a sense that Flying Hórses may have taken her heart into a time machine and found a way to translate its story into an arc of powerfully emotional instrumental music. Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s Efrim Menuck, Grammy award-winner Chilly Gonzales and JUNO award-winning instrumentalist Charles Spearin (Broken Social Scene, Do Make Say Think) were mentors who contributed ideas, direction and feedback through various parts of the Reverie recording process.
This is a heartbreak record, everyone has one. If popstars can have them, so can composers, explains Jade Bergeron, the Canadian behind the Flying Hórses moniker. I think we’re finally in a place where it’s okay to talk about the heavy stuff. It isn’t as necessary to have a filter on the darkness, like we used to. My records are generally a reflection of where I am personally. That said; I didn’t want to the music to bring listeners down. The silver lining being that; you can always wake up from a bad dream.
Most recent single off her album, Isolation is about coming to terms with the realization that it's better to be alone than be with the wrong person, explains Bergeron. Director Dylan Toombs successfully opposes the loneliness that inevitably comes with a breakup to sheer beauty. The video tells the story of a couple, drifting apart. The woman is having flashbacks of the moments where she was realizing that she was better off alone. The end of the video shows her by herself (isolated) and still standing. Toombs stages the story of the slowly collapsing relationship on a breathtaking backdrop of images shot in the Canadian Rockies and upstate New York. The majesty of the landscape conveys that isolation can always be overcome, in the end.
Earlier this winter, Flying Hórses shared a breathtaking video for the song Unsettled. The song followed in the footsteps of Sorg Sea I and II (released last fall). The music video, directed by Timothée Lambrecq, finds the artist caged in a glass cube that is filled with a thick smoke, creating a literal representation of the artist's state of mind, when she wrote the song.
The smoke-filled box is a metaphor for the overwhelming feeling of being unsettled. Although you can see there is beauty and light nearby, your mind cannot reach it until you face the darkness, instead of trying to escape it, explains the artist.
While pop, hip hop and rnb dominate the musical charts worldwide, Reverie has an essential space in this quickly changing world where sense of place and self has become the utmost priority. It’s the kind of gem of a record you need to find and travel with, on your own. It’s always scary when you have to completely let go. I hope this record doesn’t break hearts, and if it does, I hope it also mends a few.
Reverie was released on February 22 via Bonsound and is available on all platforms.
