Canadian Singer and Songwriter Rêve Drops new Track “CTRL + ALT + DEL” Produced By Montreal Duo Banx & Ranx
Drawing inspiration from the heydays of 90s sophisticated Euro sound, the lyrically clever “CTRL + ALT + DEL” arrives just in time as the perfect end-of-summer anthem. “CTRL + ALT + DELETE ‘EM. Ain’t got time for this on the weekend.”
Highlighting Rêve’s flair for surreal aesthetics, the futuristic visuals show a series of versions of Rêve in a continuous, déjà vu-like loop. Who clicked CTRL C and CTRL V? “Drawing inspiration from the song’s name, we created a never-ending loop, inviting listeners to dive into Rêve’s surreal world,” said Anthony Hachez. “The song’s 90s-era sound is also reflected in the video’s aesthetic, bringing it to life in a futuristic way.”
The day Banx & Ranx and I wrote the song, we went into the session with the intention of creating something super fun and lighthearted to offset the heaviness that everyone was collectively experiencing. We tried all sorts of weird and wonderful things during the session, most of which you actually hear in the song today (like the pre-chorus that sounds like a cheer chant for example). ‘CTRL’ is a song with a sense of humor that encapsulates a feeling that I’m sure most of us have felt at one point or another: the feeling of wanting to go out to the club for the music and literally nothing else!”
Rêve’s music reminds you to embrace the emotions and parts of yourself that you are taught to perceive as flaws in today’s world. With much more music on the horizon, 2021 saw Rêve confidently emerge and offer intriguing previews of what is yet to come from the songstress as she continues to cement herself as one of the brightest new pop-EDM stars. Stay tuned for much more to come.
