Listen to The New EP ‘AER’

QUINQUIS – aka Breton artist Émilie Tiersen – has shared a new 6-track EP, AER, ahead of a European tour that continues with a performance at London’s Roundhouse tonight.

The AER EP is the latest release in a busy year for Emilie, whose debut album for Mute, SEIM, came out earlier this year. Initially inspired by the birth of her child and a period of intense touring with Yann Tiersen, her own touring in 2022 kicked off with a performance at Sea Change Festival and a series of dates with Algiers before continuing throughout September and October – full details below.

The EP consists of five recently recorded new compositions and one unlikely cover, Berlin’s Moroder penned classic track, ‘Take My Breath Away’, which Emilie says was initially recorded “…almost as a joke. I was lying on a hospital bed, in the Covid section. I had been evacuated from my island as I couldn’t breathe properly.  I spent a week in that hospital room, seeing only doctors. At some point, as my worried friends were trying to get some news from me, I just sent them ‘Take my breath away’ and swore ‘If I can recover from this, I’ll do a cover of that song’.”

Listen to ‘Tres’ here:

When asked about the track, Emilie explained, “Writing about ‘Tres’ makes me a bit shy. It feels like returning to the little girl I was, the one that was hiding her feelings to pretend to be stronger and happier than she actually was. This song is unfortunately about so many people… someone I really care for and the dark childhood he went through. Little boys and girls I saw drawing nice pictures at school while I knew they were going through hard times they didn’t even know how to express. The people my brother meet when he’s working for the “childhood protection”. The title is ‘Tres’, which means ‘Draw’. It’s an invitation to express what we don’t dare say.”

Earlier this summer, Émilie shared two incredible remixes: Phew’s remix of ‘’Netra Ken’ and Keeley Forsyth’s take on ‘Adkrog’. Both tracks were singles from the artist’s first album under the name QUINQUIS. SEIM forges a deep connection to the artist’s own culture, history and identity and saw Émilie working with a new sonic palette after several albums released as Tiny Feet. Once these ideas began to mutate into something more musical, she connected with producer and artist Gareth Jones (Sunroof, Liars, Depeche Mode and Apparat). “The record revealed itself in the back-and-forth Gareth and I had,” she says. “It was really unexpected because Gareth and I are quite the opposite – he was the light to my darkness.”

A sense of interconnectedness leads to the album being a multifaceted one. It is deeply personal and introspective yet also collaborative and expansive. It is rooted in both historical and modern stories. It is an album that connects worlds while being entirely its own. The resulting album merges sparse electronics, immersive atmospherics, and deft melodies, carried by Émilie’s tender yet quietly soaring vocals, all sung in Breton.
