French/Argentinian singer Claude Violante - what beauteous name, right?- released her self-titled EP last month so we decided to engage in an international edition of Take Aim with the singer, whose voice is achingly fragile yet markedly assured. That's not easy to do or be, mind you! But our own Amy Sciarretto was up for the challenge and quite beguiled by Claude, in that girl crush sorta way.
Violante is a producer and writer who also operates as part of the duo Haussmann. They recently scored the music to the end credits of the latest movie Les Infideles of Oscar winner Jean Dujardin.
CV's amazing PR firm said, "The young Claude Violante mixes and multiplies pulsating beats and synths with her warm intimate voice. She doesn’t hesitate to clearly state 'I only have a love for you.'" Awe, Claude, we love you truly, madly, deeply.
She was sweet and coy, like a loving coquette, speaking of shoes and serial killers.
If you were not be doing music, you would be?
Easy one! I would be a vet…
Do you have any non-musical hobbies, talents or skills?
I love to read, especially about serial killers. I am starting to be kind of a specialist in that field…movies of course, electronic stuff, shoe collector. I am certain to be very good at a few things, but I can't think of anything right now!
Can you share an intimate writing or recording story about "For You?" Something that puts us in the moment with you, and that we could not discern simply by listening to it?
You know what they say about intimacy...
You are part of a duo and are now going solo. Why did you choose to put out a solo EP at this time?
I have actually always been doing music by myself, before I even worked with Tony (from Haussmann), I just never thought that it would be interesting to share it with everybody… Then I met Gloria (Tsunami Addiction's boss) and she encouraged me to assume it, so I did!
You say, "I only have a love for you." That is very sweet. Can you elaborate?
I think that's pretty elaborate already, don't you think?
