Clarens: Trust

Tanner Ross' live ELITA set, Polar-prize recipient Chuck Berry, Toumani and Sidiki Diabaté and more in the music we tweeted this week

A whirlwind tour performing with French synth-pop duo Juveniles prompted Senegal-born, Paris-based musician Ousseynou Cissé to create a song about his experience. The emerging artist—who now goes by Clarens—told Interview magazine his new track “Trust” is “a song about lost friendships.” Set to a downtempo beat that feels like raindrops falling on a snare drum, his sweetly melancholic voice perfectly complements the lyrical sentiments of loneliness and life on the road. “Trust” will feature on the anniversary compilation album for indie dance label Partyfine, formed a year ago by French producer Yuksek.
