Clemence Violence is an emerging Paris-based singer/songwriter and pop artist. Her debut single “Holy” is centered around thumping kick drum, a sinuous bass line, twinkling keys full of malicious intent and a razor sharp hook paired with the French artist’s sultry vocals.
The song manages to reveal a remarkably self-assured young artist while sonically being a slick synthesis of Billie Eilish and Back to Black era Amy Winehouse. Thematically, the song touches upon spirituality, eco-feminism, witchcraft and one’s relationship to nature.
The emerging French artist is a graduate of ESEC (Higher School of Cinematographic Studies) and the accompanying visual was co-directed by Violence and a longtime friend, and the visual emphasizes the song’s themes — with a gorgeous and creepy air.
