Coralie Clement, the tri-lingual french pop singer (she records in French, English, and Italian), took a playful approach on her third album, Toystore. Backed by a montage of toy instruments (ukulele, penny-whistle, pocket comet, alto half-violin, slide-flute, Melodica, maracas, shaker, xylophone, baby Farfisa) Clement’s breathy, enticing voice is appropriately and amusingly disconcerting when singing lyrics such as: “That’s the life, that’s the life we lead. Sedatives and café crème” on “C’est la vie”.

“This record came as naturally as my first album,” she says. “It was as if I was guided by a film director.” Clément’s expressive vocals are a perfect fit for film, something a growing number of directors are learning. Her songs have already been used in films; like L’Idole (2002), Something’s Gotta Give (2003)—with Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton—and On va s’aimer (2006), as well as in an episode of The L Word. Already a fan favorite in Japan, Germany, and Italy, Clement is now set to take over the rest of the world.

“She uses her gifts as an actress, her intelligence, and her fragile stamp in the service of simple interpretations.” - Florence Trédez, ELLE Magazine (France)
