I haven’t presented any French artist on here in a little while and it’s time to fix this situation! I have to apologise profusely to Anne from Nubyan Vibes and to you readers for not posting this earlier, as I had it in my inbox for several months now… I hope you won’t be too mad at me for keeping the goodness for that long, and that you will appreciate as much as I do. I first heard from Tum’Soul productions years ago, during the ‘golden era’ of MySpace but I have to admit I haven’t followed their releases and artists closely. When I listened to Osmojam and the track Si tu veux rester for the first time, I was immediately attracted by the great production and by the lady’s beautiful and smooth voice. There is a very chilled and soothing, jazzy vibe to the song, which I greatly appreciate. It’s really the kind of music that puts a smile on my face and makes me dream of beautiful moments spent with special people… The lyrics are also very interesting and if you don’t understand French, I can only suggest you take lessons, as Osmojam definitely has a talent with words and it’s a pity to be deprived of the pleasure of understanding what she has to say. Si tu veux rester is an ode to secrecy and mystery when it comes to a relationship, to avoid being put under people’s gossiping spotlight and risk being judged for not ‘making it’ eventually. I really like Osmojam’s honesty and openness here, which is miles away from mellow love songs that can sometimes seem a bit too ‘idealistic’. The song really makes me want to hear more from the talented lady and I’m quite happy to say that she is currently working on her debut album. That means I will probably tell you more about her in the near future! Until then, you can appreciate her beautiful music and put Si tu veux rester on repeat. This should help you stay warm during those long cold winter nights…
You can listen to and download the song on Tum’Soul’s Bandcamp page or just by clicking on the link below
And you can discover the very nice video for the song, which was shot partly in one of Paris famous venues le Bizz’art (formerly known as Opus). Enjoy!
