Charles Lavoie, Vincent Legault, and Frannie Holder formed Dear Criminals as a side project after several years of wanting to collaborate together and not being able to do so. “Petite Mort” is the latest single off the trio’s debut effort, Crave and similar to the Octave Minds’s “Symmetry Slice,” “Petite Mort” posses an eerie and hushed beauty.  Additionally, the song is sparsely arranged as it’s comprised of Lavoie’s unhurried whisper, gently strummed guitar, swirling electronics, which gives the song a haunting, spectral vibe.
