Psych // Pop
Under Canada’s expansive prairie skies, Ponteix overcomes musical convention in favour of unclassifiable symmetry. Mario Lepage’s intoxicating vocals flutter brightly above saturated electronic rhythms and echoing chambers of gleaming synths. The psych-pop outfit’s soundscapes harbour nostalgic lyrics sung mostly “en Français”. Now as always, Ponteix plays with language barriers while delivering to its audiences what is undeniably central to music… emotion.
