The identity of electronic pop duo P’aris is being kept under wraps, yet we do know so much that it is implied the duo are more than likely Canadian. French-Canadian even, as one would hazard a guess.
Since first appearing online a few months ago, the project have made a good degree of progress in sharing three polished and precision primed synthpop pieces – “Heaven + High Water”, “Confidence” and “Focus”. The latter of which and the freshest of the trio of tracks “Focus” being the one which offers us the most spark of interest with regard to the band thus far.
“Focus” is extremely twinkly with shimmery radiance and the kind of cotton candy sweet but ethereal vocals that could all too easily make you go yum, yum at all its glittery allure. Cut beneath the gleaming surface of “Focus” and you will find it to give quite a different message that’s arrived at it’s making and is best explained in the words of P’aris from their press release:-
“‘Focus’ is a song about two people experiencing the loss of a pregnancy. There’s a very particular type of gentle empathy that both partners must offer each other when going through a miscarriage. It’s a strange type of loss, especially from a pragmatic standpoint – you haven’t so much lost something as you have lost the idea of something. So in a way you’re mourning the loss of control over your own future, control over your body, your biology. And you’re also faced with the fact that you have failed at the one thing humans exist on earth to do. ‘Focus’ is about making sure the relationship doesn’t suffer while you’re each processing things in your own way”
This track is no way massively sorrowful or brooding, infact the overall sound is evidently geared towards the spiritually uplifting and empowering. A reminder that a little love and compassion goes a long way in times of adversity whilst undergoing any kind of healing process, but all the substance of message that rings true especially at this time of year.
Peace and goodwill to all.
