With the release of the Born of The Same EP, Greenvale Manitou takes a fresh approach to an alternative pop style. Laced with addictive melodies, vast undertones, and plenty of character, the record boasts the aesthetic of lush and soulful pop anthems.
" The EP is first and foremost a collaboration between two creatives possessed with the same drive. That's the logic behind the EP's title and the eponymous single. I very much wanted a collab for my first release! A fusion between two people who grew up in different cultures (I am a French Breton and Jeenti is Indian Assamese) where one can still find many sonic connections and resemblances. We had fun fusing peculiar elements of each other's cultures, songwriting, recording and mixing approaches.
Each song incorporates both acoustic and electric instruments, electronic beats and samples. As an artist, I find it absolutely crazy how hard it is for people to even dare escape the current urge to fit things in genres and categories, you know?", explains songwriter Cedric Briand
Greenvale Manitou is the brainchild of songwriter Cedric Briand and has been bringing different talents in and out of the mix in an effort to create something refreshing with each new release.
The Born of The Same EP consisted of Briand and producer Jeenti Dutta who brought a unique approach to each of the tracks on the record.
The latest release dubbed "Santa' Closet" feels warm with holiday spirit and packed with an acoustic rock and pop approach that comes through beaming with character.
The releases from Greenvale Manitou all give something genuine and a little new which has become part of the staple sound of the project.
