The heroine of this song yearns for musical rapture as she loses herself in the simple perfection of autumn's falling leaves.

Soleil Bleu is an indie shoegaze duo from Paris, made up of singer and actress Lou Lesage and Arthur Jacquin, musician and songwriter. These two hitmakers met at a party, and found instant chemistry together. "Alma Page" is their latest single, and it mixes elements of psychedelic rock with hints of lofi, indie, and electronic lounge pop. This delicate and groovy track is perfect for fans of La Femme, Clara Luciani, and Sebastien Tellier.

The electric guitar is the star of this arrangement as it tangles a consistent single-note pizzicato riff around layers of reverb and a luxurious counterpoint of vintage synth tones. "Alma Page" lays out a sound that is both ultra-cool and a little bit mysterious. Judging by the band name which translates into English as "Blue Sun," Soleil Bleu is happy to explore the imaginary and transcendent world of pure fantasy. The heroine of this song yearns for musical rapture as she loses herself in the simple perfection of autumn's falling leaves.

The music video was produced by Léo Schrepel.
