This is the debut full-length release from Cours Lapin -- a theatrical underworld of twisted French fairytales. The four Danish film composers Asger Baden, Peder, Jonas Struck and Louise Alenius have joined forces to create the project Cours Lapin. Baden, Peder and Struck's music creates a cinematic backdrop where Louise's melodies and challenging lyrics perform. French songs with a scent of melancholy and spring, with Louise's poetic vocals in focus. A mash-up of Tim Burton, doll theater, French chansons and the abyss. Cours Lapin's unusual combination of words, tones and accents leads us into a theatrical underworld consisting of French adventure shaped by the old "chanson" tradition. The moods of the album move from the dark and sensual to the naive and encouraging; one minute you are initiated in the rites and mysterious intrigues surrounding a murder scene in the '50s, and in the next you're following strange creatures on strings in a 20th-century puppet theater.
