Gal Musette is an effervescent indie songwriter and awe-inspiring piano player who showcases her dark, contemplative nature on her new single “Je Vois Le Ciel”. Gal Musette delivers an impeccable performance of airy French lyricism and haunting siren-resemblant vocals that tell a story of loneliness, monotony, and imaginative desire on her latest release.
“Je Vois Le Ciel” is performed entirely in French and calls upon the esteemed French screenwriter and poet Jacques Prévert. The song draws parallels to Prévert’s work through lofty spirals of dramatism and sentimental lyrics. Musette discusses her urge to explore a higher purpose and how time keeps passing her by from the windows of her bedroom. She toys with dark, descending piano and playful upright basslines to counteract her symphonic background vocals at the heart of the piece. “Je Vois Le Ciel” has an eerie, existential undertone, but remains lighthearted and mischievous on the surface so that it lingers long after the song is over.
Gal Musette (Grace Freeman) has opened for acclaimed artists such as Macy Gray, Suzanne Vega, Todd Snyder, and Donavon Frankenreiter. In 2021, she released her debut album Backwards Lullaby featuring a duet with one of her greatest inspirations Rufus Wainwright. “Je Vois Le Ciel” further explores her personality as an imaginative, baroque songwriter.
