Marc-Antoine Beaudoin’s “La tête à l’envers” covers dark themes with a piano-led ballad. A full band joins Beaudoin later in the song, building to an impassioned climax of distorted guitar and subdued drumming, highlighting his emotions laid bare. Letting the songwriting shine, the simple production matches the raw performance delivered by the young Montreal musician.

Beaudoin’s latest EP Novembre is available on Bandcamp.
