French-Caribbean singer Adeline released Intérimes, on 10th July 2020. Seven tracks of future facing, genre-transcending pop of the highest calibre, Intérimes is further confirmation of an artist daring to break the mould. Adeline spoke with The Fountain about the EP as well as plans for the remainder of the year.
TF: You have a new EP out, what has the reception been like to Intérimes?
It’s been very rewarding! I’ve been feeling so lucky to be able to develop my career in the middle of a pandemic. Things are moving in the right direction and somehow I feel like what I’m missing out on (because of not being able to tour), is being made up for in other areas. I really feel good about where I’ve come to with my sound and it seems that people are noticing the evolution and reacting really well to it.
TF: How would you sum it up in one sentence?
The sound that I’ve been dreaming to create for years.
TF: Who do you look to and idolise when it comes to influences with this record?
Outkast, Minnie Riperton, Erykah Badu, Rufus & Chaka Khan, D’Angelo, Sly & The Family Stone, P Funk, Curtis Mayfield, Prince.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this EP release?
Giving the current situation it’s very difficult to make plans. My goal is to get back on stage and perform this record immediately, but I don’t know when that will be possible. So I’m going to focus on finding innovative ways to promote this EP while working on the next and keeping developing my fanbase.
